The Tidalforce charger is designed to work with (surprise!) Tidalforce batteries including their integrated BMS. It will take a bit of work to modify it to work with non-TF batteries!

3x TidalForce M-750, 1x Tidalforce S-750 with Crystalyte HS3540, 1x TF iO-X Cruiser, 1x TF iO Cruiser Step-Through. 1x E+ 1000W hybrid bike. ebikes.ca DrainBrain & Cycle Analyst meters. GoPro HD Hero2 camera. A123 20Ah batteries. Bosch Fat Packs, 37V 10Ah LiPO pack, 37V 12.5 Ah Headway LiFePO4.

Its actually pretty simple. The third wire is a temp sensor input which needs a feedback. you can use a cheap resistor.

Yes, this charger is not for you. Just tried a 10k resistor from third wire to groung and seems to work. Has to be connected to the circuit at same time as the battery pack inorder for it to work. Possible to bypass internally, but
Probably not worth the effort.

Hello all! I'm a noob, and this is my first post. Has anybody had experience with the Tenergy 3A 36V Ni-Mh charger mentioned by Monstarr. It receives 2.5 out of 5 stars from the selling site all-battery.com and can be purchased cheaper at Amazon.com ...Problem is I too bought a used Giant Suede with its 2 original batteries and the charger. It rode fine during the test ride, but when I got it home the charger starting its blinking lights indicating it was charging correctly, and thus not charging. I thought the batteries were bad, and soldered up a new series of D-cells, soldered the old terminals up to them with [including the two resistors and the temp sensor (not sure if either of those are good, and if they may in fact be part of the problem)], but the charger still indicates with its blinking light that there is a problem charging. Any help or advice is appreciated...TIA!

Welcome, Rickhoover.

You would be much better served if you created a new topic with what you stated in your post. Perhaps title it, "Giant Suede Battery Charging Problem" or something to that effect.

I just picked up a Giant Suede where the battery kicked the bucket, charger should still work. I'll take $20 + shipping.

Get a Cycle Analyst and a Multimeter, you're still a noob if you don't have at least one of each.

NiCd and NiMH chargers are the same apparently as that is what ebikes.ca sent me for my NiCd I got from them a Nimh charger. Confirm this with others.
Give me nuclear batteries I say!! Ripped off by Joshua Goldberg to the tune of almost $900 re headway groupbuy for batteries, no $ no batteries
