I just thought i'd share my story with everyone else.
A few months ago i was in the market to buy new batteries. Although, I ran into the dilema of who sells the best packs? So i decided to do an experiment by purchasing only top of the line 3800mah packs by EA Motorsports, Pole Position, SMC, and Hurricane.

After racing with these packs for a few months i found my EA pack ran consistantly faster(including the lowest IR's) than all my other packs.

Furthermore, the customer service i got from EA Motorsports was First Class!!!

Sincerly,
Chris Chavez

(FYI my charging equipment consists of a CE turbo 35 GFX and a Much More 30 amp pulse discharger)

Hi Eric, one more Q over the batts, regarding storage.
I saw on another forum you say to keep 300sec of charge in the cells if not used for a few weeks, that I understand. I'm just a little confused over the use of dischargers and tray with these?
Is it still preferable to equalise the cells before charging?
How about re-peaking?

I just stuck to my normal pattern over the weekend, charging at 6.5a/25mv, discharging at 30a, traying on a robitronic tray, and then recharging (if I wasn't using the cells again, I was just discharging down to 5.4v).

Cheers
Ed

If you are racing every week there is no need to put charge in the packs. If you are only racing once a month then yes put 500 seconds in the pack. This is what EA has told me about charging and storing packs.

Racing every week.

Tray the pack (Much-more)
6.0 - 7.0 amp charge (7.0 for stock and 19 turn)
.02-.03 cut-off (depending on outside Temp)
Discharge at 30 or 35 amps after racing

Storage
After your done racing and your pack has cooled put 500 seconds in the pack and leave it until next time. When your ready to go racing dis-charge the pack. After it has cooled follow the steps above for racing.

I hope this helps.

This is what I reconmend for IB cells...Except I now reconmend putting 300-500 seconds of charge back into every pack even if you are racing every weekend. I havent lost any cells doing this while others not doing it have lost cells.

Do you recomend the 300-500 seconds each week to help keep cells from venting? I know when going to a "storage charge" I have not had any issues with venting after the pack have sat for several weeks.

Yes I do with the newer IB cells.....But it's a lot easier to just tell everyone to do it will all IB cells than trying to explain it.....Not putting charge in the cells and having one go dead is what causes them to vent.

Hey Eric-

What do you think of the Trinity DPD vs. the Muchmore. I know you have posted about both of them and you seem to be recommending them, which one at this point do you favor?

Thought about the DPD from a cost standpoint, a little more affordable.

Thanks...

If cost is a factor then the DPD will do as good of a job as the MMR unit...it just takes a little longer to discharge. If you always find your self in a hurry and money is not an object then I would get the Much More discharger. Its what I use as I like to get stuff done fast.
