Please post results.
I'm going to compare it to itself first.
In other words, I'm going to see what the difference between a straight charge at 6.0A and a step charge using the Nexus settings.
Unfortunately I don't have a new pack of GP3300's or anything else to compare it to, but I'll break out a well used decent pack of SMC GP3300's and do the same comparison between a striaght charge and step charge. I'm going to discharge them at 25A with a .9v/cell cutoff after they have cooled to 40C (104F), since I've found that discharging a whole pack at a constant rate of 30A immediately after peaking heats them up too much (62C+/145F+) at the end.
Danny, would you recommend any parameter changes for this test with the CDR?
I'll post the final charge/discharge results from the CDR.
