Seen this thread near the top and wanted to post my findings on how my cells are reacting to the way I have been taking care of them....
The results are good !
Runtime= a little lower...( within 20 seconds in one case...a little higher in the other...again within 20 seconds )
Peak voltage= near same
Avg Voltage= Higher nearly 1 / 10th of a volt per cell avg
The packs have nearly 10 runs on them to this point.
Here is how I have been handling them:
Remove from storage and dump to 5.40 @ 30 amps
Place in Novak flatline or tekin battery doc tray till lights are out
( If in the tekin tray I will place in novak until that led is out )
Chg @ 6.5 amps to .3 cutoff
Place in car and run
After run remove from car and place in storage box without discharging
( I always see guys saying put 450 or 500 mah back in the battery after they discharge it...why not just leave the pack alone till next race day?...it's working for me )
Are you still using the trays??
