    The manufacturer for by A123 and LIFE batteries say 2,0v per cell is cut off. So in a 4 cell pack that is 8v, the charger wont work there,
    when it shuts off the battery is ok, the charger wont get hurt...

    In our flight packs we leave margins so that we dont run out at some point above Terra Firma.... Not necessary in these field packs. I have
    used a sullivan starter on one of these that was used on capacity... just like your power drill... about time you notice something is low in
    voltage it is done... time to recharge.

    Good morning Dennis!

    BTW full charge on the 4S1P is 14.6v, it comes down quickly to 13.2v and stays there pretty much until close to the end of its charge.
    By the time the 4S1P reaches 11.4v you are pretty much at the bottom... give or take a few mAh.

    I was selling them for awhile, few guys at the club have some of my 4s A123 packs on Heavy duty starters. We've been starting up to 100cc on them :) I no longer deal in a123 anymore for commercial sales so don't think im stealing your thunder! :) They look good though! Im sure you will sell alot of them, I started out with 4s lipo but under a massive load they don't like it to much. :)

    Can you spot the Genuine WS Deans Ultra plugs in this photo?

    WWRC is under contract with WS Deans Co and uses their Ultra Plugs exclusively when making our packs.

    Back to the WrongWayRc- A123 Thread...

    Here is an A123- 100 that was requested by a customer who has some of his GS ignitions on Deans and some on JR power leads. This battery
    can go from one plane to another and interchange. With the 18 ga multi strand silicone wire and deans or standard 22ga power lead this battery
    could go just about anywhere from a small glow to a 50cc flight pack.

    Balance tap is a standard 5 wire Cellpro lead. We also do Cellpro balance leads to plug into the Cellpro 10.

    Well I got a LOAD of Cellpro 4S chargers in today. Heads up, when they are gone I will stock the Cellpro 4S Gold but the price on these Gold chargers are $59.99 or twenty bucks more than the Refurbished... I already do stock the Multi 4 (does lipo and A123 lie above two chargers plus Nicad, NIMH and lead acid) and it is $63.99, boh plus shipping....

    So for $39.99 shipped in USA it is a Holiday Value.... http://www.teamflyingcircus.com/forum/f58/wwrc-sale-factory-refurb-cellpro-4s-chargers-5788/

    Got some guys on the other site questioned me when I said I could charge two batteries that were hooked up to the same receiver (common ground issue) so I made this vid for those guys in the Missouri State....SHOW ME!!

    Notice the new 4S1P-3300 Life 13.2 field pack in this vid. Weighs about 3/4 of a pound and will run my charger on the flight line all day on my 50cc........Bring it home, charger it at 4 amps and it is done/ ready for another day in less than an hour...Cycle life is projected at 2000 cycles when limited to 4 amp charging and 4 amp discharging....Any of you interested in one of these they are on intro sale right now at for $59.99 (15% off) and any order between now and January 15 will get a free 4mm bullet connector to deans to run their charger (a $6.39 value)

    So check out the vid... When I fly my big planes with two batteries I can top off my A123's while breaking the plane down and putting it away... those days of waiting an hour and a half to charge the LIION's are gone for me.
