charging your packs and how often you use them
I use a GFX charger. Charge at 6 amps with the peak detect set at 0.05. Before each cycle, I place the cells on an Integy 20 amp tray for about 10 minutes, let the cell rest for 5-10 minutes then charge. After each run or cycle I place the packs on an Equalizing tray and store them that way. I never cycle the same pack more than once a week.
I have never had any problems with any of my other packs using this method (Fuku, SMC and Orion). In fact, my Fuku and SMC packs seem to get stronger with every run.
The Power Push cells used to be popular at my local track. I had heard good things and bought 4 packs about 1.5 years ago. They all started out amazing but quickly started loosing power with each cycle after about the 5th-10th cycle. After that that they were garbage. From what I hear, many at my local track started experiencing the same thing and stopped buying them. Used to be everyone at my track had at least one Power Push pack in their arsenal. Currently, however, I haven't seen a Power Push pack at the track in a little over a year.
