RE: What did you get today?
Hopefully Monday I'll get a fancy charger that can do 3 amps per channel. If not, I'll definitely get it on Tuesday according to DHL.

There will be a review as soon as I figure out how to review it.

It may well end up in the pot for the 100K giveaway once I've had a serious playing/testing session with it.

Apparently this device measures impedance better than anything else out there. Might just do a tutorial on how to measure that with wire and voltmeters..

Once i figure out how to do it..

Hi Don - it could be handy for the forum to measure impudence[Image: tongue.gif].

I have one also. Usually run an Alpine on top.

RE: What did you get today?
New charger arrived.

First impressions, it is big for a two cell charger. One very pleasant surprise was that it came with a power supply with a UK plug on it. This is very nice. I own a lot of adapters but do prefer proper plugs on my devices.

Since it'll take D sized cells, it is a fairly large device.

Here it is next to a 4 cell LiitoKala Engineer charger.

It is also quite tall as there is a fan in it and it is constantly measuring temperature. According to a handy micrometer it is 39.29mm high. Which is around an inch and three quarters.

Here it is side on beside the LiitoKala which is a typical 4 cell analysing charger.

And here it is charging a couple of NiCd D cells.

[Image: 35484859153_e9ea3759a6_b.jpg]

The display is all about one channel at a time. In the picture above, it is displaying channel 2, the right-hand cell. The yellow button switches the display between channels. It actually provides quite a lot of information. You get percentage of charge on the battery icons in the top half of the display. On the lower half of the display you get time on charge, the number of milliamp-hours put into the cell. The bottom right segment cycles through temperature, voltage, current and impedance.

There will be a lot more once I've fiddled with it a bit. I just got it out of the box ten minutes ago.

RE: What did you get today?
Not as far as I know. They may make one if there is demand. It looks very impressive at first sight. I believe it is a brand new model and this one is one of the first out of the factory in China. There are 1.5 and 2 amp per channel models as well, this 3 amp per channel model is brand new. The 2A per channel was very thoroughly reviewed by HKJ here.

http://lygte-info.dk/review/Review%20Cha...%20UK.html

I have neither the equipment or the skills to review like Henrik does.

To make a 4 channel charger that could run all three slots at 3A you'd need a powerful fan and a 12V 6A power supply. The power supply would probably be a fifteen dollar part all by itself. But I'd be in the queue for one if they made one.
