RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

Dan - you can get a 12 amp Pyramid power supply for about $40. I've read several posts about using an old computer power supply. I chose not to go this route because I did not want to take the risk...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

Is it worth burning your house down to save $50? Just get the power supply.

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

I was wondering the same thing. After charging NiMH and NiCD at 1C, the batteries will take an extra 90-200 mAH at 0.1C depending on size. Am I hurting the battery? Or will the battery take more...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

So what will happen if the input cables are reversed? I know if the outputs to the battery are reversed you get an error. But what about the power input? Does it detect this or will it fry?

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

Besides the "dial and pray" charger I [reviously used, this is the only other charger I've owned. A couple of posts and a few weeks of charging batteries and it's dead simple to use. For the $80 I...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

I'm not saying the problem is with the charger. I'm suggesting it is in the battery pack itself. The bad connection might be between 2 cells. The pack gets real hot in one spot and cold everywhere...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

I'm using a Pyramid power supply. I tried charging at the low rates and the battery is detecting a false peak. The pack is cold but gets hot in one spot - where the shrink wrap melted. I'm...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

One more issue - the battery stops charging after putting less than 100mAh into it. It keeps falsely detecting a peak. Anyone know the reason for this?

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

I've used the charger quite a bit now. Straight forward with 2100mAh NiCd. I've cycyled a few of these batteries several times. 1A discharge and 5A charge, and the battery doesn't even get warm...

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

Hmmm...Sounds like I'm hearing 2 different things. Is 5A the rate (5 Amps/hour), or am I pumping 5A into the battery? Also, how does the charger know the battery has peaked?

RE: Multiplex LN-5014 Charger Ships & Review

I just bought one of these. It's simple to program, but I have a few questions.

1) How does it "know" how many cells the pack is with NiCd and NiMh. How does it know what current to charge it...
