    Help identifying charger and tweaking output

    Does anyone recognize the make/model of this charger? A sticker on top says 72v 6A. The open-circuit output is 89v, and I recall it going up to 86v max when connected to a pack. There are 3 pots on the board labeled VR1-3 and a blank spot for VR4. Maybe one is the max output voltage, one is the knee, and the other... ? Just wanted to check with the experts before I go screwing up the settings
    Depending on how I configure the replacement pack, I may need the output to max out at 78v.

    BTW - do any here by chance recognize this stretch of curvy-straighty funness?

    Looks like the cheap chinese charger off your GPR-S. I bet if you asked Electric Motorsport, not even they would be able to tell you how to tweak it.

    Yep that's the one. As cheap as it looks from the outside, the circuit board & components look professional and decent quality. Guess I'll try fiddling with the pots and hope neither I nor the charger get fried

    I recall Ed had a 72V DeltaQ for sale a while back. I can also source a brand new DeltaQ pretty easily. The charging profile of the DeltaQ is fairly simple to program with the programming dongle. Might be a good option if all else fails.

    I have had no luck today trying to upload a photo of my charger sticker into the attachment window. So here is what my charger sticker says:

    The charger sticker says: Model: EMC-7206LFP.

    AC input: 110/230 VAC - manual switch, 60/50Hz

    DC output: 90V = Constant/ 6 amps

    DC output wire: Brown wire DC(+)
    Blue wire DC(-)

    Looks like the Kingpan KP-EL 72V6A

    Hey I think you found it! Shame that there doesn't seem to be any documentation on how to adjust it. Against my better judgment, I experimented with the pots, first marking their original locations. VR2 alone affected the open-circuit voltage. 5 full counter-clockwise turns brought it down from 89v to 78v
    My hunch is that the other two control the knee and CC level.

    Harlan - thanks for the suggestion & offer. I'm evaluating my options and may contact you about it.
