last weekend was the fist time I used it.
I am running the new sanyo 3300 cell from trinity. gmvis charge at 8 amps works great on them just need to watch the heat dont go over 120 degrees and i wouldnt suggest trying any repeakingwith it.

a funny thing happened when I tried that the about 3 min into the repeak I heard three loud pops from the cells. Josh cyrul races at our track very frequently and he said that is normal for the cells and they will do that until you get 5-6 cycle on them. scared the hell out of me though. cells did not falter and didnt hurt them at all fast fast fast


anyone try the sx9 yet??

I got 2 of the GMVIS charger.I had charged my 3000 HV and 3300 at different amps..up to 9 amps for stock racing.They work really well.I guess it depends on how you want to train your cells.Mod I had charged them @ 6 amps and peak them again at 9 amps.Results ....very good.
Sounds scary..but works.......................

RandyB,
I cant remember which exact setting i use, but steer clear of 30mv. per pack, start at 10 then try 20, id say 10 for stock and 20 for mod? does this sound right?
