Yeah this is a very new issue and we've had two people (the poster here and one other user) recently have this situation where the charger works fine with the v1.024 FW but has starting glitches with 1.025 (either Pwr Fault or a premature Charge Complete). If there is anybody else who has witnessed this on the firmware update please get in touch with us. We'll be able to issue an updated debug firmware that outputs a log file which should help us pinpoint just what is going on in the startup sequence.
that's definitely the charging input, right on the top of the battery pack. The male cable end says "Higo" on it, I tracked it down to this:
Yes, see the Saitiator manual for details.caledondave wrote: ↑Jul 18, 2018 10:35 amHi,
This is my first post. I bought my first e-bike kit in 2008 from Grin. It came with a trangular NiCad battery. The battery has not been treated kindly. I let it freeze in the winter and bake in the summer. Now I want to start e-biking my fat self to work because the price of gas is really high. My NiCad battery charges but not too well. I am wondering if I purchase the battery satiator if it will talk nicely to my battery and fix it so it operates like it did when it was brand new. Does anyone know if the new battery satiators from Grin work on NiCad batteries?
For the **Shorted** issue I am still wondering why the charging process wouldn’t a 13S pack at approximately 31.6 volts (according to the Cycle Satiator “Connect Battery” screen display). According to the manual re-charge should to occur below 2.0 volts per cell. Which is approximately equal to 26 volts. Trickle charge for the profiles are set to operate in the 21 V to 30-ish volts range. I do expect the charger to charge a 32v deep discharged pack. For a low discharged pack, I am expecting the “Connect Battery” message according to the manual. Instead I am receiving the “Shorted” message.
It should, but you don't need a 72v version for 6s, which in LiFePO4 is only going to be about 22V full.
Hey cj0, this behavior is indeed a bug in the software that we know about. Few people change the advanced device settings in this way so it hasn't come up very often but we will see that it is resolved on the next update of the Satiator suite. The reminder is appreciated and I've bumped it up to the team.
This issue is a known issue in the 1.008 firmware that is discussed in this post
