They only run at their peak performance for that long if you dont take care of them (like equalizing, etc). If you are new though I wouldnt worry about it too much. One need for a turn marshall wipes out any gain you had from have the best equipment.

6 amps, 20mv cutoff is probably a good start. What's more important is the temperature of the batteries when you're done charging. Like Losi123 said, 125 degrees at peak is probably about right. They will actually get a little warmer after you stop charging.

isn't that mv a little high? I charge mine to cutoff @7mv. At peak their temping @ 125 degrees. I saw a thread about two months ago where a guy blewup a 4200 charging @ 6 amps and 15mv. I'd be careful with that .02

That's depend on what type of race you'll follow, mine :
1. stock (19T, 23T) : 6 amp 20 mv
2. modified : 5 amp 10 mv

But I use TWL 2.0 for discharging

Hey. I two I'm alittle confused about the peak setting. I have an ice charger. The peak cut-off has settings from 3mv to 15 mv. Got my answer on another topic site. I don't have the instruction b/c i just borrowed it. I found out that the ice mv cutoff is set for per cell not per pack. Thanks Steve. Later. Dan
