    23 Input limit min volts: {10.0|10.1|…|11.9|12.0}V min volts: {10.0|10.1|…|10.9|11.0}V




    If this unit is to have car-charging facility, might as well change the Input limit to range from 10vdc to 16vdc?

    Hola fran82, great to see your interest, you re finally back a regular visitor on the flashlight forums!

    tatasal what s the DC voltage supply output range of the car? The General Setup View (GSV) has an item which says
    Input: 14.8V>11.0V
    filling exactly the permissible 18chars per line in standard font.
    Tbh i dont know what it means haha. The "14.8V" seems to be the measured voltage of the power supply unit, one cannot change this value. The "11.0V" is the value which the user can edit and set to anything between 10.0 and 12.0V. I am guessing that this is the minimum supply voltage which the device accepts for operation. If you set it to 12V, it would mean that you dont want your supply voltage to drop below 12.0V,i.e. that you prefer a rather stable voltage between 12V and the max allowable voltage (which is 18V afaik). The label for the PSU plug says "DC INPUT 11-18V". GSV indicates that the lowest acceptable supply is 10.0V, i need to reconfirm it with the maker (EDIT: 2015-05-31, status: unconfirmed). If that is true, then your 10-16vdc falls into the 10-18vdc range, so no problem .. as long as the car can deliver the required amperage.

    The dimensions of the charger arent very portable nor is the weight. For spacious cars no big deal

    Yes! It was a confusion..

    It is MIN input voltage between 10 and 12.

    So the charger will accept between 10 and 18 volt.

    Great!!

    Is it too soon to be talking about price range for this charger?

    At this point after all thats been said about the MC3000 price is the only factor that decides if I will be able to get one or not.

    I like this charger and I would buy it.

    But I want to replace them all my chargers:
    - NiMh
    - Li-Ion
    - USB

    I would like to have more usb ports, at least 2 (with automatic selection of coding).

    Also, I need information about USB-out on display: voltage, current, mAh/mWh.

    Ideally, I would very much like to have support for USB 3.1 and all the charge profiles (at least up to 12 volts):
    - 5 volts and 1.5 / 2.0 / 3.0 Amps
    - 12 volts and 1.5 / 3.0 / 5.0 Amps

    Wow, lurking for 14 months before posting. Not sure what you want to use something like this for USB support.

    Does it still charge D batteries, and will it discharge 18650 to storage voltage?

  17. #317

    Default Re: SkyRC — IFA 2014 — MC3000 charger-analyzer

    i will agree with Dubois, the device is mainly a charger-discharger, not a USB meter. my favorite USB meter is the inexpensive KCX-017, so people can just use such a gadget as accessory. the USB power output is 2.1A / 5V, and that`s about it, no serious plans to expand this already neat offer afaik.

    yes it still charges/discharges D batteries, without adapter.

    yes it will discharge/charge 18650 to storage voltage. you can set for example "3.75V" as storage voltage, insert an empty or full 18650 in the slot, start the program, and when the program is finished, you remove the battery and can measure 3.750V, stable, on your multimeter. the storage operation mode employs CV-phase and inverse CV-phase, called Discharge Reduce, to reach the storage voltage as closely as possible. termination current can be set to 0.01A or lower.

    To begin with, will just the Hobby Shops have this, or do you think it will come out of the gate at the Usual Flashlight Suspects also? - US Dealers and the Big Chinese houses?

    I have a charger/s now, but this I see as a Must Have!

    Thanks,

    Pity. But I don't not need a USB-meter, I just a very comfortable to see (on the ammeter) that charging is complete.

    I mean that now I have three chargers (each of which takes its socket with a switch, it's more like a power plant control panel ), and would like to have everything in one.

    Maybe in the future

    Chuck good question.. I believe that they don`t know what to do with this atypical product in their RC Hobby catalog, who of the regular RC hobby folks would be interested in it, those laugh about our single cells

    Maybe a flashlight distributor would be a more appropriate point of departure

    No doubt that there are steps being made on both sides Flashlight Distributors and SkyRC as we speak -Well, Here's to Hoping!

    It would be nice for us Europeans to see this charger available from the better Chinese dealers (like HK Equipment).

    Been lurking for a while in this thread as I am interested too in the MC3000. Hope it is released soon so that we can read some reviews

    Just to confirm-
    There is a 4.35v charging option on the final update ya?
    I'm hoping to justify buying one of these by getting a few D1s or something so I'll actually "need" it rather than want it hahah

    That is a brilliant idea - I will buy some 4.35v cells, then explain to my wife that I made a mistake, and need a new charger to get the full use out of them. I love it.

    4.35v - Yes!

    And, please SkyRC, make it where I can use it without taking the charger apart every time, going from 3.6 - 4.2 - 4.35. - Sound familiar? :-)

    I have a Nitecore D-4, and use the LiFePO4 setting (3.6v) to charge to Storage level for Li-Ion - Very handy.

    Please tell me when and where I can send the money! - SOON, I hope:-)

    Thanks,

    -Chuck

    There was always that option from this post in the thread from what I have seen.

    Most definitely not.
    I passed through Shenzhen, am now in the centre of Hongkong, and i got nothing in my bags but some Eagletacs, Eneloops and a cheap new 4bay charger yet not by Skyrc

    I did contact the company and they plan to send me a mass produced review unit anytime "soon"
