The desulphating phase is only intended to get the batteries to accept
charge sufficiently well that the charger can proceed to charge normally
rather than faulting out.

I believe you mean 2Mb, not 4Gb (though 4Gb would be nice ;^).

The data logging serial interface (ES1R) communicates at 56k4, 8N1, no
flow control while the standard serial interface (ES1) communicates at
19k2, 8N1, no flow control; are you using the right settings for your

Also, you might want to check with the Ken Hall if all else fails since
they did ship some of the devices with an incorrect resistor value such
that it may not communicate properly with every PC even though every
interface continued to communicate with the PC used in PakTrakr
production. (Both of our ES1Rs had this problem and were returned to
PakTrakr/Ken for updating.)
