I have the ProMod IB4200 and am racing Mod Touring. I have always had issues with runtime.
If you could tell me :-
Cut off mV for the pack,
Discharge cut off per cell.
Also I use a Spintec battman, is this ok for these cells?
Finally, should I put a charge in for storage?
Just want to get this right as I have used GP in the past and have heard some horror stories from the IB cell.
Discharging before Charge: I throw the pack on an Integy Zero-30 til the lights go dim or go out. Then, I throw them on a Novak Smart tray, and keep an eye on them.....once the lights go out...I start the discharge again...and keep doing so until the Novak tray turns off approx a second or 2 after starting...then I throw it on the charger.
Charging: 6amp charge, .02 cutoff, make sure long lockout option is on if using a Turbo35.
Discharging after run: 35 discharge to 5.4V (pack voltage). After that...I let them cool and throw them on a Integy Zero-30 til the lights dim/go out. Then store them.
I've been doing this process with all my packs...and have a bunch of packs from December that still cycle out with very, very good numbers. Give it a try
