Kyosho Manoi Delta Peak Fast Charger

Hello Everyone,

When I got my KHR-2 from RT corp in Tokyo they also gave me a Kyosho Manoi Delta Peak Fast Charger. I didn't ask how to use it at the time because for some reason I assumed I would know.

....guess what. I don't :roll:

I'm not sure what setting to have it on. And although there is a start button, I don't know whether that implies it has an internal timer which will shut it off, or do I have to do that myself? If so, how long does it need.

I thought about turning it on with no battery connected and pressing the start button, but Im not educated well enough to know whether I should do that. Wouldn't that create a load of somekind...


The battery is;

10.8v 300mAh

I have a picture but im not sure how to attach it. There is basically a start button with three LED's above it - Power - Slow - Fast
There is one dial for the Amps which goes up .5A at a time from 0 - 5.0

I got so annoyed with it that I dumped it in favour of LIPO's and a normal LIPO charger.

Never did figure it out.

Also, it looks like it won't work on 220v :(

Ahh, right. Well I have a step down converter for running 110v so I'm ok on that front. Shame you didn't like it. I've written to RT corp to see if they can give me any tips. ...I'll post them if I do.

Thanks for the reply!

Hi,

The connectors on the back are for a 12V INPUT

This means that the charger can be run from a 12V battery, or as I did, a powerful 240v - 12V converter.

I played with the current settings and selected about 2 amp charging current .

Just press the button then it will quick charge to a certain level and then slow down and continue to trickle charge.

If you find the battery getting very hot during charging, lower the current settings until you find a happy level.

Good luck.

Thanks Orac.

It's funny. I plan on getting a bench top power supply so that I can get on with programing the little fella, but when i mentioned it to my brother he decided that it would be the ideal christmas present for me from my 2 year old nephew(+mum and dad). So now I'm stuck with my crappy stock battery for 5 weeks... :lol:

Thanks again!
