      Hi all-

      I've been using my Force as a daily driver for three months now; got almost 5000
      miles on the new lithium pack! :)

      Here's the rub- My NLG4 is acting VERY weird and will not charge the batteries.
      It claims the battery voltage is EXACTLY DOUBLE what the battery voltage
      actually is. Looks like a processor or configuration issue. I have a very bad
      suspicion that it suffered a brain hemorrhage and now thinks it is an NLG414,
      instead of an NLG412.

      Additional clues: It has forgotten its serial number, and its date of
      manufacture. I expect it may have dropped the contents of the serial EEPROM on
      the processor board.

      I've been working on it for several days now, with no results.

      So, first question: Anyone have the correct EEPROM image? Or a spare processor
      board I can swap in? Or a spare processor board I can read the EEPROM image
      off?

      I'm desperate here, since I have no vehicle, I've had to get a rental car.

      So, second question: Does anyone have an extra NLG4, working or nonworking, to
      beg, borrow, or buy? If borrowed, it will obviously be returned when I get mine
      fixed.

      Please please PLEASE help if you can.

      Yours,

        I think sending to Wolf is the best or maybe the only option to fix your charger. The other would be to replace it. I have been hearing a lot of good feedback

          I think sending to Wolf is the best or maybe the only option to fix your
          charger.

          The other would be to replace it.

          I have been hearing a lot of good feedback on the ElCon chargers and their
          pricing seems reasonable.

          I have no association with ElCon but if I was going to buy a charger I
          think it would be the one. Its also an isolated charger which is a plus.

          Curious has anyone bought a ElCon?

            144V... After programming the EEPROM, you will need to run NLG4 to

              I have an elcon for the project i'm working on and they had good service, i
              can't say how good as we have yet to have an issue with it. I called them
              up, took a few tries to get through to them (it's a small company) I was
              able to get the charger i wanted ordered and programmed within 10 minuets,
              it arrived well packaged and un damaged. The LED is just that... for
              changing the program/confirming your settings, it does it's job. For the $
              2 or 3 LED's or usb access would've been nice but I understand the hassel
              that is. I'm saying this from the perspective that $60 RC car chargers can
              do this. We don't have a ton of cycles on the charger, as were almost done
              with one vehicle and the other is very far out of balance so were charging
              it painfully slow with a DC powersupply because the eclon hits it with so
              much power the voltage on the high cells goes through the roof and the BMS
              kicks off the charger, brings the highs down within limit and then it kicks
              it off within minuets. No fault of the elcon unit though, as thats the
              charge curve we picked out and if the pack was in good shape I'm sure it
              would preform as it should. So the elcon is a good unit based off of my
              initial and limited use of it.
