Default Step Charging GP 3700 and GP 3300

I did a search on step charging GP3700 and nothing much turned up... anyone know a good 3 step step charging process for GP 3700 and 3300?

Much*More suggest the following in the CM manual. I have tested it and it works great on both cell types!

GP3300

1/3 2400mA 7.0A
2/3 2420mA 0.2A
3/3 3800mA 4.5A

03 peak detect

GP3700

1/3 2650mA 7.0A
2/3 2680mA 0.2A
3/3 4100mA 4.0A

03 peak detect

explactuation:

1. The temperature of the battery pack after a step charge is much lower than that of a constant 4 or 5 amp charge.

2. On 3300's and 3700's one would like to have as much power out of them as possible. Voltage and runtime is slightly higher when using the step charge method.

3. Charge time is also usually less.
