Do you need a special charger to balance the cells or can any charger do it? Does it need to be done often?

Hey joel, it should fit in your T2008. It is the same length as a 3700 battery, 0.5mm less wide, and 0.5mm less tall, if im not mistaken.

EDIT: Oh, forgot. Thats the deminsions for the 4800 version. The 3600 is either the same or even smaller, and its shaped like a stick pack.

I had had a few 3200's for about a year and I am noticing a slight fall off at the end of a five minute run. Just wondering if any one has had the same issue?

I've had my three packs for a year now. They are still running as good as the day I got them. I have about 65 cycles on them and I balance them once a month most of the time they don't need it.

Sounds like you may need to balance them.

Hi If you check this post of this thread
http://www.rctech.net/forum/showpost...postcount=1606
Mr Black of Team states you can charge at 6.4amps (2C).
Some where else in this thread he mentions when they did the testing of charging at 2C, it did not even noticably shorten their life span.

if you want to charge higher go for it if you really want to but i dont.you dont get anything out of it,just the chance of it going boom or the cells dieing.
