Batteries & Chargers?????????????
OK as stated in my posts name I am wondering what to do here? I have just gottin back into the hobby after a long break, I started racing 1/12th last winter and have moved back to sedan this winter with the T2-007.
I am presently using an LRP Pulsar sport to charge my old 3800 packs(3) and will be using the same to charge my new IB4200WC packs which I also have 3. I have been charging all my packs at 6amps then running them on the car till they loss there umph( about 8 mins) I then place them on my Trinity Real Time 2 conditioner & Discharger until the lights go out. Then I will place them back on charge again after about 30 mins for another run.
I did this all last winter with my 3800 cells with no issues that I can think of, please keep in mind I am by far not a top driver but would say I am competitive at my local track.
I am presently looking to add another charger to my gear as I know I have a basic charger at this time but it has done me well and would still be using it in conjunction with the second charger when I get it. I am hoping that you (the people of RCTech) can help me to correct any errors I am doing now to my batteries and help me to choose the next and fitting charger to my needs, please keep in mind I am by no means a top racer and am not looking to be. I am having fun with this hobby as I feel it is ment to be. That in mind I do want to do things properly and with the proper tools.
Thanks for the help as I trust with all the posts I have been reading I have come to the right place for the help I am looking for.
