well i have done a search and have read so much stuff i wish i never read to begin with,, im more confused now than i was before reading...
i already have a reactor 20 on its way
im guessing all i need now is a tray
i have my eyes on
duratrax 20amp tray
the much more v tray
the indi zero equalizer
the indi 6s
im not sure which item would be best to buy as a combo with the reactor 20
if i get the zero i would probably get 3 of them,,, one for each pack i race with...
now since i dont know which is best for me nor how to USE them , everyone seems to have their own method, i decided i would confuse myself even further and start this thread just so i could shoot myself from all the overwhelming info...
my thoughts..racing stock about once a week, and practicing about twice a week:
-after race discharge with reactor 20 to 5.4volts
-then place on tray (duratrax) until all batts are discharge evenly (equalized) via the lightbulb indicator
-then store on tray to take the pack down to zero (zero equalizer or 6s)
-store packs off tray once zero volt is reached and the day before the race charge slighlty and re-equalize the packs
-discharge with reactor 20
-equalize the cells on the tray (the duratrax)
-maybe recharge if practice session is extended
i have for praticing
2 non-gp 3300 packs
1 matched fusion gp 3300 pack (old)
2 gp3300 for quals
1 gp3700 for race main
am i on the right track with how to use the dischargers/trays... with what i mentioned above i would need to buy the duratrax 20amp discharger and 1-3 trays (zero or 6s) or could i get by with the duratrax 20amp by itslef and do each pack seperately
this is what im not sure about,,
COMMENTS: Do not leave the cells on the unit for extended period of time as
this will cause the unit to discharge the cells down to 0V which
may permanently damage the cells.
This is used for single Sub C size cells and not intended for use
with assembled Sub C size battery packs.
since the duratrax says the above,, would it be best to get the zero thirty or do i have other alternatives... TRYING TO SAVE MONEY
does the zero thirty have a seperate 0.9v cutoff
THANKS AND SORRY FOR THE LONG POST
