If you are going to let your IB batteries sit don't discharge them. With GP's and other batt's (other than IB) I charge at 5.5 and discharge after every run.
Do you race or just bash, if you bash then it really isn't that important to discharge your batt's. All it does is increase performance and decrease batt life.
Thanks for the response. Right now I just have Venom battery packs which I know are not that good but I want to start buying IB and other good cells and want to make sure I get the most out of them when I start racing.
So I guess you want to discharge them, charge them, use them. Then discharge them, charge them, use them ect.... while letting them cool between charges/discharges?
The discharge before hand allows them to have better performance?
The discharge/charge would be one cycle. Why would you want to cycle a battery 2,3,4 or 10 times?
