I have been away from r/c for like months, just recent, i bought 2 new packs of Team Orion Rocket Pack 3300 MAH NIMH batteries from my LHS..
So my very 1st thing to do when i reach home, i discharge the pack @ 10amps since my charger only allow 2 charging rate either 2 AMP or 10 AMP and i charge it for use @ 3.3amp...
Just about 5mins or so,my batteries show false peaking, same for another pack.. my charger Beeps indicate the battery is oready fully charge, but reading was @ 8.4V @ range from 5xx~6xx MAH
After that i discharge the pack and charge it again, same thing happens....then i called back the shop owner, they recommend me to cycle the pack[s] few times, see wat happen...and so i did, i cycle the pack 5 times...capacity did increase by abit but, battery dun peak...after tat i dare not to discharge the pack, since there is some capacity inside, i just put it away..
The charger im using was a APEX MU+ -> http://www.apexhk.com/products/mup.html
Any1 can tell me if the charger is not compatible with the battery im using now or is the battery faulty? or maybe both? Should go for a better charger eg: LRP pulsar 3?
