When I step charged my IB's I did not notice a big difference in performance, or battery temp. In fact, I have more problems getting my temp into that 125 to 130 temp range (farinheit), So I usually charge my IB 's linear at 6amp.

Best way to charge:

Connect the IB4200 pack directly to a 12v car battery. You will know the pack is charged when it starts to make a slight hissing sound. Immedietly disconnect the battery then.
