My process:

Remove pack from car
Discharge 6pack @30amps until white LEDs go out, (about 10min), immed remove pack
Condition pack until red LEDs go out (about 10min)
Store pack in a cool place

Next weekend:
Condition pack until red LEDs go out.
Charge pack at 5.0amps/DeltaPeak 30mV/no trickle/linear mode/4700mAh**
Race then as above

** that it charges to 4700mAh and does not stop worries me. Isn't that too high? It's a 3800mAh pack. Or should I let the charger go until it automatically shuts off?

Thats like overcharging... Not good for cells too. Maybe you could lower the delta peak.

Thanks BenC.

I'll adjust to 10mV Delta peak. Should I also, turn the charger off as soon as it reaches 3800mAh???

Your help is appreciated.
