When I discarge till next time I race discharge them to 5.4 volts then before i charge them again put them on the integy zero discharge tray and drain them down to 0 volts then charge them again. My question is after runing the batteries do I let them cool before I discharge them. Also my charger has all these options I dont know how to use or if I should use them, like what is peak sensitivity and what should I set it to?what is trickle charge current and what should I set that to?what is top off charge and what should I set that to? what is the point of cycleing your battery packs?and what amps should I discharge at. the batteries say dis 35 on them. Need help please
I would not discharge your IB's below .90 per cell, or 5.4 volts under any circumstance. And yes, you can discharge right after running, but if you can, put a fan on them to help them staycool.
