Hi all! I'm a newcomer to this site. I've dabbled in hobby grade RC on and off for about 30 years, but the amount of practical experience I have is nearly zero compared to most of you. I'm mostly getting back into it because my youngest son seems interested. Any excuse right! I also have a question about battery charging. I just got a Hitec AC Plus Single Port AC/DC Multi-Charger (6S/6A/50W) that I am having trouble figuring out. I want to get my old Team Associated RC10 T3 running again, so I bought a Racer's Edge Super Sport 6 Cell NiCD 1500Mah Battery since it's similar to the battery that originally came with the RC10, and I didn't want to take any chances. I also have a 2WD Traxxas Stampede XL-5 that came with a 7-Cell NiMH 3000mAh Battery and got my first Lipo battery for the Stampede as well, a Traxxas 3S "Power Cell" 25C Li-Poly Battery (11.1V/3300mAh). Phew! So those are the specs. Now I want to charge my new batteries. As I understand it, brand new NiCd batteries should be charged overnight (14-16 hours), so I tried to program the charger to do so. That's when I got toally lost. The instruction manual was not helpful either. I searched the Hitec website for info. Then I searched various RC hobby sites for articles and forums with no luck. So here I am, swallowing my pride and ...gulp! ...asking for help. Does anyone know how to set up one of these chargers? When I try to customize the charge settings, it takes me through a series of screens wherein I can change various parameters. Unfortunately I don't have a clue about some of the settings it asks for. This is more or less what the program asks for (note: settings that can be changed are followed by ???): INITIAL PARAMETER SETUP: NICD Sensitivity D. Peak Default??? Temp. Cut-off ON??? 80C??? Waste time CHG/DCHG??? 5min??? Safety time ON??? 120min??? Capacity Cut-Off ON??? 5000mAh??? Input Power Low Cut-Off 10.0V Then there are additional settings: CHARGING OF NICD/MIMH BATTERY: NIMH CHARGE Aut CUR??? LIMIT 5.0A??? DISCHARGE OF NICD/NIMH BATTERY: NIMH DISCHARGE 1.0A??? 11.5A??? CHARGE/DISCHARGE AND DISCHARGE/CHARGE CYCLE OF NICD/NIMH BATTERY: NIMH CYCLE DCHG>CHG 3 AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!! It's driving me nuts! You can imagine what the settings for a Lipo battery look like! Any help would be appreciated.
