After charging a pack fully are you suppose to discharge them straight away or cool them down ?? Some ppl say cool them down some say discharge them straight away
Im quite confused, you know how racers repeak there batteries before they race to get the best possible performance ?? Well isnt it the same as charging a pack and then discharging them 20Amps straight away ??
Im using 3300GP and Sanyo 3000HV. Hope you guys can help
try visiting the smc thread, i got all the info i have now from that thread.
by discharging after charging, what are you trying to do? are you tryin to cycle ur packs? if ur merely cycing ur packs, its better i you let the packs rest for a minute or two before discharging, its more gentle on the batteries as they dont heat up unnecesarily, remember too uch heat is not good for you bats.
however, if your racing, its better if you use the bats within 5 mins from thetime the charge stops as the discharge voltage is higher. Dont u notice, if you run a bat thta was charged the night before and then repeake don the track the pack is not as punchy as a pack that just came out of a charge?
well, hope my inoputs helped, gudluck!
