    Default Re: Test/Review of Charger SkyRC MC3000

    Nice setup!
    In the past weeks my saved programs were
    [11] = LiIon 1.75A Charge with Zero termination
    [12] = LiIon C>D Cycle with 0.01A termination
    [13] = LiIon 0.50A discharge with 2.50V cut-off
    [14] = LiIon 0.30A Charge with 0.03A termination, for charging 16340's

    And in SETUP i set the memories to
    SNB#1 = [11]
    SNB#2 = [12]
    SNB#3 = [13]
    SNB#4 = [14]

    Vely happy with that!
    Note that you lose your saved programs when you update the firmware.
    DataExplorer's function 'Backup&Restore' helps you to backup your 30 programs in file format (*.XML, *.TXT, or printout).

    Default Re: Test/Review of Charger SkyRC MC3000 Quick Thanks...

    HKJ, for the super review. First post, and happy to say I got the
    charger. Little more than I need here, but a lot of fun to work with.
    Read most of the thread; been reading and lurking here for a few
    weeks. Did a search for the MC.3K and this poped up. So, 1 more
    charger in my vast collection here. Thanks everyone for a great thread.
    Answered most of my questions...

    I know this review was originally written several years ago. I believe the MC3000 is still considered king of the universal chargers and have been checking out prices. Iíve noticed that the price on Amazon is almost double what itís priced on the open market, sometimes even by retailers selling through Amazon.

    Any ideas why the price on Amazon is double vs elsewhere?

    After pondering the purchase of the MC3000 for six months, finally ordered one. It's not easy finding a reputable source who currently has the latest version with two cooling fans. But did find them in stock at nkon.nl. Final price with shipping after conversion to US dollars was $121.03, not the cheapest I've seen others get it, but WAY cheaper than I've seen on Amazon (the last two listings were $170 and $190).

    From NKON'S product listing:
    Latest hardware version, two cooling fans, three raised points on positive terminal (and of course reinforced pins to prevent the broken slider problem in found very old versions)
    And of course a couple of other CPF members have also recently ordered from NKON and confirmed the latest version.

    I just got mine from gearbest.com -- they just restocked after a month of being out of stock. Should be the newest model. I'm excited for when it comes in.

    Came out to $99

    No guarantees. Chinese factories are notorious for "finding" and dumping large inventories of "old stock".

    I got mine (my third one) from NKON. Definitely the latest version with two fans etc. I sold my first production version and have a 'June 2016 production' also from NKON as backup or if I need to charge 4 x D size batteries at once.

    Always had good service from NKON.

    You can never have enough stamps (from the Netherlands).

    NKON packaged it well.

    And of course two cooling fans.

    So pretty.

    Oops
    , not everything was perfect. NKON shipped me the wrong plug (EU version). I didn't see an option during the order process to select that. I think they were supposed to look at the shipping address to determine which plug to send. Fortunately, that's a very common two-prong AC chord (female end) and I already had one. The "brick" portion of the adapter takes 100-240V, so the brick works with either the EU or US type cord. Everything powered up OK. Emailed NKON to let them know, and told them they didn't need to do anything, it was just an FYI.

    Edit update: Just got this reply from NKON:

    Hi, We are an eu store, and sell 99% within Europe and Russia..

    Don't have any USA or even UK plugs
    Therefore, if you live in US and order from NKON, you will need to get your own US cord. On Amazon, they're typically in the $6-7 range.

    On to the fun part; learning how to use it.

    ProgressiveRC has just listed the MC3000 on Amazon (LINK) for $101 plus shipping $7.38 (two-day shipping in the US). That's cheaper than I got it from NKON.

    One of the questions on the listing was:
    If I order today (01/16/2018) will the skyrc mc3000 be the newest version with two cooling fans and three raised points on positive terminal?
    "Yes (ProgessiveRC)"

    Not currently available. I hoped to get this before I deployed, but looks like I'll have to hope they'll ship it to me once it's in stock.
