no offence dude but why u running 1300mah?? there up to 4300mah??
but if u really like em some tips are:
check how far u discharge them nicad like to be dead flat so if u can put them on a discharge tray do it and take em down to 0.0v but dont ever discharge a full pack that far only take the cells individually down to 0.0v.
all honesty ud get much better voltage and run time from newer cells imo
hope this helps

We have a 1500Mah limit in stock (silvercan) thats why and we have found these cells to have better punch than the tamiya 1400's that we would otherwise use.

Aus is right, discharge them to 0V ( on a tray) and allow to cool before recharging. Mine take about 1800maH

18mv seems wayyyy low. Put it up to about even 50mv and theyll take in at least another 150mah.
