    Assessing Battery Health Help

    Cheers for the replies and I've recently got a charger (not used it yet) that can measure IR as well as the amount of capacity going into a battery which will be interesting to see. My query was triggered as I do quite a bit of cycling and the light's powered by 18650's, the torches I use have...

    MiBoxer C4 v3 OR C4-12 Old Version - A Dilema

    Certainly the rewiews I've seen appear to be quite good but generally they cover functinality rather than how long they last which would be my only concern as otherwise it does everything I need it to.

    MiBoxer C4 v3 OR C4-12 Old Version - A Dilema

    Not sure if I’ve had a result with this or not … I ordered the new C4 v3 with 1.5a charge capability for just under £23, I guess they must have run out of stock so sent me the old single button version of the C4-12 instead. I wasn’t bothered about charging at over 1.5a nor was I bothered about...

    Best Charge Rate For NiMH

    There seems to be quite a bit of conflicting information so I thought I see what people’s thoughts are here regarding the best charge rate for NiMH’s. Some say that unless it’s at 0.5c it’ll be too low to detect when the battery’s full and others say that’s too high and a more ideal rate and...

    Assessing Battery Health Help

    How do you know / measure how your battery's health is deteriorating .... obviously they seem not to last as long is it that the capacity drops off and they don't hold as much charge i.e. a 2500 may only take 1000 mah to fully charge from flat? I know you can also measure the internal...

    Intelligent Chargers

    Came across a video for these units today, at 12.15 he's talking about it charging 14500's at 1.2amp which I agree isn't ideal for the battery and if you have to select the charge rate manually it kind of defeats the object of paying a premium for one that supposedly does it for you .... I'm...

    Opus BT C3100 Erratic Behavior - Fan Gone???

    I put one battery in to charge and it was fine, tried to put a 2nd battery in one of the other ports and it just showed Null so tried it in the other ports and it was the same. I pulled the plug out and tried again and it initially seemed to be working fine with both batteries, within about a...

    Intelligent Chargers

    I'd be interested to see what rate it charges at for each different battery, most chargers default to 0.5 amp for 18650's and whilst a lower rate is better for extended battery life most are safe to charge at 1c so 2/3 amps depending on capacity and if you do want a faster charge to get them...

    Any Concerns About Lipo Safety???

    What are people's thoughts on Lipo safety with your typical 14500 / 18650 batteries???? I fly a lot of RC things where there seems to be a lot more "Paranoia" about Lipo safety / charging and am "battery safe aware" and always use good quality chargers etc and whilst they're generally much...

    Manker E03H

    I put off buying the E02 only to see what the 03 offered in terms of run times and how much larger it was, the size difference is negligible which is good, same width couple of mm longer, I'm definitely up for one of these think it'd be a great and incredibly useful tool to have around and will...
