i dont know if you packs are bad but i have 4 gp 3300s and all charges to about 3700s+ on my pulsar ... i charge at 5 -6 amps ... im thinking your batts are just bad or your threshold is too low. try setting it at 30 mv.

If they are not discharged to the same level, it cant be compared.

Are the cells warm to the touch when they peak? If so, they're charged. Use 30mV as a delta though for 6 cells (I think the pulsar manual recommends something crazy like 18mV, much too low)
