This is the advantage of miniz. You can play much more time than other rc scale cars.

I can remember when I run with my 1:8 gas... I had a year only 52 Weeks, 20 week end was not good wheather, 5 of them i got to go to a weading or other compromises, rest ... my wife always said .... you had to be with your family .... so finally I just take my car 8 times a year :-D

With miniz, I can play all week and week ends too.

Has anyone purchased one of these and used it yet? I'm very curious about this device.

It's now been a few months...anyone tried this analyzer out yet?
We run 4 AAAs per race.....6 to 8 races a night....times 7 drivers......I'd really like to find a way to rate my cells and perhaps match them better than just guessing.

I have it and have used it to go through all my batteries, the biggest thing that I know it help was to find some of my really bad batteries and I just tossed them. I did group them together and so far I have been happy with the results.

I don't know how often one should test and re-match the batteries. I'm just leaning as I go and have time to mess with it.

All of my batteries are pretty old and I'll probably be replacing them in the next few months. I'll cycle them all several times and then I'll use the analyzer to match them.

if this does all individual readings, why limit to 4 cells? this is highly inefficient when most have a box of cells to go through. I would rather pay a bit more for a version that accommodates a greater number of cell that would markedly reduce the overall time spent going through all my cells.

I would totally agree with this, would be nice if there was one that could do maybe 10 cells. it would have been faster for sure.

what i do not see explained is the criteria used to match the batteries from the data generated by the software.

how does the software correspond to generation of labels? TRP shows labels available for purchase.
Quote:
Battery label, with bar code and with unique code.
For AAA battery. Its a easy way to identify your batteries when matching process.

TRP site has a decent looking case this appears to slide into. Looks like a 3D printed product. Anyone have details on the labels?

How long does the process take for 4 cells?

I didn't use the labels or bar code, when you put the batteries in you label them. I just numbered my batteries.

you charge the set and then put them in the manager, Label the batteries according to the slot they are in and start the manager, you can let them run for 20 minutes if yo want, I set a time and stopped them just after 8 minutes as that is what our races run for. the battery manager does a discharge cycle that in a way replicates a race, drain stop, drain stop, kind of like on throttle off throttle.

after you stop it you can save the results and import them into their online "cloud" this allows you to sort the batteries into the the best sets based on the data collected from each battery. you can sort them by best set for 8 minute race and then group those batty numbers together for your set.

hope that explains it.

just picked this up yesterday and looking to give it a try. is there a diagram to tell which channel corresponds to the channels illustrated in the software? the board is not marked in any way and no diagram provided with the product leaving you to guess which way is up. no instructions provided or link to download the software, drivers other than to say come here to hunt for it on our site.
