Default Temps

Can the batteries be cooled while charging or should they be allowed to get hot...

Can the batteries be run directly after charging especially when they are hot or should they be allowed to cool down ????? Can batteries being run hot be damaged ???

Default Let 'em get warm!

It's one of the best indicators to tell you if your batteries are charging properly.
If it gets too warm... Re-evaluate your charger.

I let them cool a bit before running, knowing they will warm up while running.

My favorite way to go is to charge the battery ahead of time and re-peak just prior to the heat. This way you get a fully peaked, cool battery to run with.

Please chime in if i am wrong here.
