Overload shutdown level - Less sensitive overload shutdown feature To prolong Overload shutdown trigger time
Input voltage error range 12V lineup Out of 9V~13V range More than 13V (Lower input voltage error is removed, but min. voltage should be 6.5V to operate mightyZAP.) For users who want to use mightyZAP at lower voltage. At lower voltage, force & speed will be lowered too.
