Hello chaps,
got an Anton Bauer Quad 2700 series from a friend and as I never had one before (I have AB Twin chargers) I'm not familiar with it. Once home, after putting my Hytron 50 on charge, I realized that the charger is charging one battery at the time, putting the other three batteries on "wait". Is that normal? Shouldn't this charger be a simultaneous charger? It has a discharger installed (DDM) and it looks in great shape, a part from this problem. Any help really appreciated!!!
Cheers

It too is sequential and will not charge hytrons. If you are looking for one I have one for sale

Eric, pretty sure the expansion module will do the Hytrons (with proper firmware). Just no go with the dionics. Check with Paul Dudeck. I too have one I want to get rid of - so someone buy these things of Eric and I!

Lol
Thanks Alec and Eric for your offers, at this point I'm afraid is not really worth for me to buy out this 2700 charger from this friend of mine and spend additional money on top to get an XM module. Maybe easier to go directly for a simultaneous 4 position charger.
Thanks for your help
