I have the 4010 Duo and I am not clear on the connections or the method to do synchronous charging on my 12 cell packs. The manual looks to me like I have to connect the wires coming out of the charger in a parallel configuration.. BUT it also says the two charger channels should not be connected..... So, it's a little confusing..

If anyone is doing this for their 12 cell packs. PLEASE give me a diagram or explanation on HOW to connect everything AND how to set the charger for Synchronous mode..

Thanks,
Viper

Connect each side separately to each of the 6S packs. Use it like it was two chargers, which is basically is.

The Synchronous charging is for charging a single pack with both sides of the charger at the same time for a super powerful charge. The 4010 "only" goes up to 10S anyway so you couldn't charge a true 12S pack config anyway.

You could wire the packs in parallel and hit them with 70 amps in synchro mode. The charger will a large 6s pack.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

The charger comes with a sync power cable that puts ch 1 and 2 in parallel. There are two black and two red bandanna plugs at one end and a single bare wire of red and black on the other end, of larger gauge wire. The bare wires will receive a single battery connector to mate with your battery output leads. Plug in one red and black bandanna lead into each channel of the charger.

You must select sync mode in settings.

Left screen will display cells while right screen shows charging summary as a whole.

I haven't tried that - how would you hook up the balance leads then? I really don't see what the advantage of doing that would be vs. running each side at 35A into each individual 6S pack.

Only use I can see for sync charging is to charge your big 120# Pb pack that wants 70A

The balance leads in parallel are also supplied with the charger. Connect the single end to a 10s battery and the two other ends go into ch 1 and ch2 of the charger.

I also charge in parallel and use two channels. Never synced.

I use my 4010 in synchronous mode when I am bringing up all my packs from storage level to 100%, usually before I go to the field. I have all 6s packs of various capacities and use my parallel board. The biggest advantage in doing this is the balance current jumps up to 2.4 amps. While I'm at the field I usually use channels 1 & 2 independently but sometimes still in synchronous mode.

Thanks,
