Hi all

Fairly New to the DP832a and was wonering will it display anywhere the ma gone into a load since turning on the channel?

for example i want to charge a single cell Li-ion cell with a max cv set to 4.2v and cc set to 1 amp.
how, if possible can i display the total capacity gone into the battery?

cheers

steve

No.
You'll have to write your own logging tool to perform this via scpi. eg 00:00 current 0.500A 00:01 current 0.499A -> use software script to add these numbers -> divide over time elapsed.
RD6006 has this built in, or you can buy various "power meters" that will do this for you as well.

My preference is to use a dedicated battery charger, if this is something you will do regularly, so there is no risk of overcharging/backfeeding/etc: https://lygte-info.dk/review/Review%20Charger%20LiitoKala%20Lii-500%20UK.html
They are about $20.
