Default Accu Cycle Elite Problems

I have just gotten an Accu Cycle Elite and I seem to be having some problems.

1. Trying to cycle a 650mah battery takes only a matter on a couple of hours @60mah charge rate.......can this be right? My old Accu Cycle took 15 hours.

2. Upon completing a cycle the screen says that the function ended but the output light is not flashing green to indicate a trickle charge is being applied......is this right or do I have a defective unit.

Thanks,

Dave

You know I just got one of these beasts and it pay's to read the instructions. It is smarter than I am when it does most of the work it's self. You program what you want and let nature take is course Just make sure you program it right

1. Yup, a single cycle won't take but a few hours depending on the battery capacity.
2. I've noticed mine doing the green light flashing deal, but didn't know that signified anything special.... silly me, guess I oughta read the manual again. As for whether or not it's trickle charging, that's easy to see on the screen. Whatever amperage is being fed into the battery is shown in the lower left on one of the two alternating displays.

Hello

The manual says that once the battery has cycled it won't trigger trickle cahrge (Flasing green light)
Trckle cahrge is triggered only when you are in charge mode (not in cycle)

It's possible the discharge cutoff didn't bring the battery as low as on your old charger. This would lead to a shorter charge time since it doesn't have to put as much charge back in. Review the results of the cycle to see what the charger did.
