RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

Pyramid power supplies are inexpensive and work fine. I can't see why anyone would try or go through the trouble of making their own. I made a small box from Radio Shack ( 1" x 1" x 2" ) into a two...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

It has been a year now and I could not be happier with the product. They have performed flawlessly for me and I really can't say anything bad about the two units I am using.:D

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

Why not buy a power supply like a Pyramid PS-14KX Regulated 12V 14Amp Power Supply. You can pick one up on the net for around $40 brand new. It is capable of 12 amp constant with a 14 amp surge. It...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

I see quite a few people trying to charge new Ni-Cad or Ni-MH at a higher rate than a C10. This is not a good idea because you are not performing a “Forming” charge. I have used this charger many...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

Well I did a little experimenting this evening with one of my 2600 Sub-C Ni-MH battery packs. Any charge rate under 1A and there was no trickle after peak detection. However, at a 1A charge rate a...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

If the charger is NOT showing a trickle rate then it is just sitting there trying to look pretty. I'm sure that there has to be a minimum charge rate for the trickle to kick in. I'm just not sure...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

I'll try it again tonight at a higher charge rate and see what happens. Maybe my charge rate is being set too low.

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

Well all I can say is both you and Texan must have the only two with a trickle for Ni-MH batteries because mine does not have than feature. I spoke with Tony @ HiTec support on 9/1/05 and he...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

Since I started this thread my only real complaint is that there is no trickle charge for Ni-MH batteries. It bugs me enough that I will probably sell the charger. All my batteries except for two are...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

My unit is also adjustable in 100 mA increments on the charge side. Obviously the instructions [sm=lol.gif][sm=lol.gif]are incorrect. The instructions [sm=lol.gif][sm=lol.gif]are pretty sad but...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

Red,

Do you know what the minimum charge rate on NiCAD or NiMH needs to be set at for the trickle charge to kick in? If I charge at .5A there is no trickle charge. However, at 1A the trickle is...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships

Well I've run this charger without a break for the last five days. The only time it was not running is when I was programming it for the next battery. This unit has gone up and down and all around...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships

No fan. As far as memory, the unit keeps the information entered from the last battery. The are no memory locations to store multiple batteries. The unit is very simple to use. All you need to know...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships

Well the charger arrived today. Upon opening the box I was pleasantly surprised at the small size of the unit and its overall appearance. I immediately read the rather flimsy, two sheet manual about...
