Charger is a DYNAMITE vision peak 2 charger.
Discharge the pack, by runnin' your car till it quits, and use battery discharger to a voltage of .5v. Let battery cool. Set your charger to 3.8 amps, and charge pack. Charger will shut off at peak, then it'll start trickle charge at .5v. Battery charger will heat up, if so afraid, put a cooling fan next to it. Take note of heat with bATTERY PACK. Keep an eye on it.
Tenergy pack are so sensative when charging. 4 amps could overcharge the pack. That why I said to set the charger at 3.8 amps, and top off by trickle.
Telling you the truth, Tenergy pack are cheap. They don't last long, in my opinion. Stay with the better brand, like Orion,Reedy,Duratrak, Trinity.
