This was posted by Brad...I believe it was for a 4 cell pack. So for 6 cell the discharge is probably 5.4v instead of 3.6V.
"Go ahead and charge them at 6.0 amps with a .30 - .36 peak detect (watch the temp. and adjust from there). When you are done racing, discharge the pack immediately on a Turbo 35 and bring the 4 Cell pack down to 3.60V. The next time you are going to race, go ahead and and put the pack on a tray before you charge them and bring each cell down to 0.0 or 0.1V per cell. Let the pack cool down and then start charging. You should see anywhere from 4000-4400mAhr from the pack."
1. I run 3 packs, on practice days I sometimes run 9 packs. This means each pack gets 3 charge/discharge cycles. Is that too much for a pack? Will it shorten its life considerably?
2. After a run I put the pack on the Novak equalizing tray. This discharges at
3 amps every cell to 0.9V. Is it better to first discharge at a higher amp and then equalize the cells? (Since it usually is about 1500 mahs left in the pack which takes 30 minutes on the tray..).
Brad is at the Indoor Nats and Kev is out of town so hopefully myself and some of the other guys can give you decent info.
question 1. Most of us generally run our packs 2 times a day at most. I'm sure you could run more but with less performance. I'm not sure of the long term effects of running 3 or more times a day.
question 2. I believe it's better to discharge after your run at a higher rate then put it on an equalizing tray. You can see what Brad posted regarding discharging and equalizing above.
Teo...do you have any pics of you and other guys running Hurricane cells in Norway? It would be cool to see some of the pics of you guys in other countries.
