Virtually meaningless 3000 observation
Thought I might share with you the discharge characteristics of my Sanyo 3000's (original type), after being left for two weeks with a full charge in them.
This is using a Pro-trak charger.
First of all, when I first started discharging (at 20A), the pack voltage was about 6.2
It dipped to about 6.1, then actually rose again, certainly higher than 6.2.
I stopped watching it for a bit then.
When the discharge finished, it was a capacity of about 1800, whereas my 3000's usually have a capacity of 2500 (i know that's poor - don't know if it's dodgy integy packs, or using a cheap charger for the first 6 months of the packs' lives).
Anyway, the moral of the story is, don't expect to get good performance from your packs if their charged before raceday.
At least re-peak them before the races.
