Cellpro PowerLab 8 (v2), Multi-Chemistry, 1344W Battery Workstation

UNLEASH THE POWER! The industry's first 1344W Battery Workstation now includes an EC5 input cable, and will charge, discharge, monitor, or multiple cycle any current or future battery chemistry. POWER you have been waiting for, safety you have come to expect in a Cellpro product. Welcome to the new class of R/C battery management. This is everything you ever loved about Cellpro chargers multiplied by 100. Technologically advanced, designed from the ground up for reliable high power, geared toward the power user but simple to operate and affordable enough for the masses. The extensive list of features and capabilities are rivaled only by the goal to provide the ultimate in flexibility and utility. Out of the box, the PL8 v2 will run circles around the competition in terms of simple, yet powerful set up and operation. But if you are the type of person looking for the utmost in flexibility and performance, look no further. The PL8 v2, in combination with the Charge Control Software offer virtually unlimited access to charging parameters. Inside the Windows environment, it's easy to alter up to 100 settings for any of the 25 user presets, gain access to 50 additional library presets in the unit or tap into the PC library. Major features include Advanced Power Management to help you set up and use existing Power Supplies or Pb input batteries, faster individual cell IR readout, support for all new Safe Parallel Adapters which enable charging/discharging multiple packs simultaneously, Expansion Channel Mode for turning multiple PL8 v2's into one workstation, regenerative discharge with input power supply protection built in. The new PowerLab 8 with EC5-equipped input cable includes a one foot long, 10AWG input wire terminating with an EC5, female pin connector. Revolectrix also has an available 2 foot long plier clip assembly to support the new version of the PowerLab 8. The available cable has the mating EC5 male pin connector-to-plier clips for connecting to a car battery or power supply.
