Where do I start?

Postby DJenner8 » Fri Mar 04, 2016 4:14 am

Does a topic exist to inform me of how to use my charger?

If not, please make an "Announcement" topic on how to hook it up to a computer using USB.
Where is the software?

The Quick Start Guide and the User Guide appear to apply to a hardware version
that looks nothing like the one I just received (Rev. 3). What in those documents
applies to the hardware I received?

Thanks, Dave.

I haven't received my charger yet and I'm finding this thread disturbing. What exactly is, or isn't, being shipped to us?

Today I received a charger with case (no LCD, apparently that was axed). Nothing else.

On it is "Rev. 3."

And URLs for two Websites. The URL for ultrasmartcharger.com lists several items,
including a Quick Start Guide, a User Guide, and a URL for this forum.

I suppose I could read every posting in the forum and find more, but it seemed to
me that it would make sense if there were a single topic up front that helps me
to use this charger, especially since it seems to be an upgraded version of what is
already documented (and the documents aren't up to date?).

Sorry - the Manager Software for Windows can be downloaded from here:

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=68

I've just updated the home page to include a link to the above page.

As far as using the charger goes, yes, the documents do need to be updated, but they should still mostly apply to the most recent version.

Key differences are:

  • Micro SD instead of standard SD card
  • No Current Selector switch
  • Built in USB interface - now only requires a standard USB cable to connect to a PC

Sorry again about the documents being out of date - updating them is on my list of things to do but I haven't much time beyond work and family matters for a while now.

I have my head in the trenches most of the time and don't get on here as often as I should. I am currently working on a complete user manual with updated images for the latest charger and will post it online hopefully in the next week or so. When I do I will also post here with a link.
