I picked up our new PFC 3000 Elcon charger today. Wow, nice and light weight and silent. I have it programmed for our Hi-Power cells. We chose this one because it is a dual power input so I can plug into 110 or 220 as needed so I can opportunity charge while away. We will be charging our first pack this weekend. We do have a custom algorithm installed. It should prove to be an excellent algorithm. We will keep posting our progress. Our first pack will be for the MG. Then the Big-E-Bus. We will have a thermal switch connected later so if the pack gets hot it will shut down the charger. We may set it up to shut down if any battery block goes over voltage. This way we don't need to monitor all the cells but blocks of cells. We will be monitoring AH in and out. In the mean time we will charge a few times while watching closely the voltages of all cells. I't s a small pack and will first be charged out of the vehicle in a safe non flammable area.
