Default Overriding default storage charge on Bump controller

Any way to do this easily? I usually store my batteries at 3.8 - 3.85V, but in the summers go flying most mornings before work and would love to easily be able to charge them to the 3.95 - 4.0V range so topping off in the morning is quicker.

IIRC, when you program a bump tag there is a setting that lets you choose your storage voltage. I think the default is 3.85v but you'd have to go through the sequence to check.

It may be possible to change that setting after programming but I don't remember where the process of hard writing ends.

Yes, the term voltage is configurable on the BumpTag for each operation - just Bump and hold the tag and select Settings, step thru the Settings screens making whatever changes you want, then Bump tag again when prompted to update the settings on the tag.

If youre running really old firmware, you may not see the option, so upgrade to the latest first.
