thanks for the feedback...
I charge my GP's at 7A, dropback 40mv (0.04V).
Discharge inthe car, then at the 5mn tone, they go on the T30 for a 30A discharge down to 4.8V. There usually are between 800mAh and 1100mAh left (short carpet track, rubbers, 12T limit)
Then I tray them depending on the moon phases (ie if I remember/have time to do it
) on my RS discharger in conditionning mode (1A, cutoff 0.8V/ cell if I remember right).
I didn't know promatch doesn't recommend dead-shorting... however I'm just like Saint Thomas, I only believe what I see from my own eyes, hence I'd like to try it on my own 3300 packs. there's a guy I race with who's the local guru when it comes to motors and batts, and he started doing it... Problem is, I haven't seen him for a while.
There's always been a lot of debate going on on deadshorting, going as far back as to waaaaaaay older sanyo cells. The main reason dead shorting creates so much controversy is because of the risks for the cells when NOT done properly (ie not discharged far enough). As I said, I don't want to hear whether dead shorting is good or evil, I just want to try it
Soooooooo.... my only question is: with 0.1V left in each cell (which is as far as my RS will go), will I blow up the whole block when I hook the + and - together? is it considered as "far" enough?
Just asking, because otherwise I will buy a no-cutoff tray...
