If that happens, I think anybody here would be happy to home one of the babies when it is old enough.


Not if they were both male! :shock: :lol:

Aparently in todays woke enviroment you can be anything you identify as, and everyone has to agree that its true.

When I awoke today I decided to identify as a black muslim lesbian cat. Not sure what my pronoun or whatever it is should be.

I think the calibration corruption in my case happened when I wasn't paying enough attention and pushed the little knob at an inopportune moment (probably with some unintended part of my body).

I think something like that happened with me. What I did notice yesterday if that if after auto calibration with the ZXD working normally, if you press Factory Setting number 7 - RESET is messes the output up again and you have to redo auto calibration.

I'll knit it a little jacket Steve! :lol: (just joking)

I don't know, I think it's more likely because I have to lug the ZXD outside and heave it onto the scooter seat every time I want to charge the scooter. I think the ZXDs are brilliant value for money considering the build quality and what it can do. I was only thinking that when fiddling with them yesterday. But I think they're more suited to staying sat put on a desk/bench.

For some time now I've gone back to using an on 24V 47A PSU for powering the PL8. It's lighter, smaller and more robust. It's two old computer PSUs gaffer taped together. I'll upload a piccy later :thumbup:

Sexes are real. 99.9% are one or the other. Its not hard to tell. If it is, look at your birth certificate or chromosomes. The 0.1% that are genuinely both or neither are not normal and have my sympathy.

Gender is woke nonsense that is made up by an individual, and I just dont care what they think or claim they are. I am never going to call a male with a penis or even if he has had it chopped off a "her" or "she" regardless. Because I refuse to take part in his make believe nonsense. And the same in reverse. You are what your chromosomes say you are.

I agree BM, the term "he-she" or "shemale" is just wrong IMO. :fencing A gender change doesn't alter the sex you were born as. Give me a true female any day! :mrgreen: :thumbup:

Theres no such thing as gender change. Theres no such thing as "gender". Gender is not a thing. Its just someones internal thoughts or feelings or mental issue.

I have a neibour with a mini. It identifies as a ferrari. But it isnt.

Having screwed up the ZXD programming another time, but this time while seeing what I'd done, I now know what caused it. While working on something mechanical on a chair my knee pressed the ZXD button long enough to send it into auto calibration. As soon as that happens, even if you don't go through the calibration sequence, it resets the program. That "reset" program is what causes it to output only ca. 1/2 of set voltage. Nothing's actually broken.

The fix, as already noted, is to re-do the auto calibration and then check that the factory menu settings are where you want them.

Thanks but, no I wont do that. I can actually afford it. I never live beyond my means. But until my funds get to the point where I have "enough" in reserve for a rainy day I will not buy anything. I must have at least 5k saved for a rainy day before I feel comfortable again. So far only half way there! :thumbdown:

If this isn't a dumb question. Why is one of the handles on upside down?

Is it for the antipodean market? :lol:

Can a ZXD2400 be programmed to charge a lithium battery like a Pl 8 will?

Testing a Anderson SB50 + XLR split cable.
12.5A will be fine, in cool days.
10A is more comfortable , all year round.


This unit is QUIET.
You'll get a nice ZXD, Jeff. cheers

It can charge them, but in parallel at 3.6v only. You need a proper charger like the PL8 to charge in series and to correctly balance them.

Steve

Can you charge and balance 8 large cells in parallel? For example if you buy a new batch of unbalanced lifepo4 cells?

Yes. Connect the lot in parrallel. Set to 3.55 volts, leave connected set to say 40A and allow enought time to charge full. And this means wait till current tops falling and drops to a low level and then add an hour or so. Remember its 8x the Ah of one cell.
