I am looking for a little help with the various set ups that this machine offers. If there is someone on RR who has one and can help explain it to me, please e-mail or PM me.

I am confused on the mah settings for various batteries and what the charge and discharge rates should be,

Thanks,

Confused?

What are you trying to charge?
Did you read the manual to get familiar with the Orbit?

Also what version is the firmware V6.3?

Yes, it is 6.3 but where I get lost is the max and min charge settings is mah. I am not sure what to set this value to. I have been trying to fast charge a 4.8 volt 1700 mah battery and only can get it to around 1000 mah.

Some of the better chargers can sense the resistance in the plugs and wires. I had the same problem with a bud's Multiplex Duo II Plus. I couldn't charge or discharge any faster than 1 amp with standard wiring. Anything higher and the unit would cut off early.

Do you mean that the battery will only take 1000 mah (what shows on the meter after the charge is complete) or that you cannot select more than 1000 mah as a charge rate ?? I know the Orbit will do much more than 1000 mah or 1 amp.
