Re: Extending Charge Time Mod

Has anybody done the QFM mod #30, extending charge time by replacing the capacitor on a Compact controller? I modded my Bit controller last night and now it charges for about 75 secs at a time. Not actually the 90 secs that I expected but better than the original anyway.

Yes, it works ok. We had some pix on the old Ausmicro forum but looks like the hacker wiped that post off.

Change time is proportionate to the size of the capacitor you’ve swapped in, nothing too scientific there. If you want it a bit longer just put in one slightly higher uF.

The lost post had pix that showed how I just piggybacked a 2nd cap on to of the original one but also stuck a mercury switch so one could choose between 1x or 2x charge time.
