XrayFD, When you say equalize does that mean discharge to 0.9 volts per cell?
Do I need to disassemble the pack to discharge the cells individually in the tray or can the tray do the discharging while the pack is still assembled?
I figured I might as well explain instead of just answer.
Charge time is calculated like so: battery capacity/charge rate*60=time in minutes. 3800/6000*60=38 minutes
Equalize means each cell is ideally at the same level of charge left in it, so when you charge it again, each cell will stay as close as possible. This is because the cells are charged in a series (with the exception of the ICC). The cutoff voltage can be set to whatever you are comfortable with. It's safe to go lower than .9 if the rate is low and you have an accurate cutoff. No need to disassemle your pack.
