Is this true?

Is it true that with Sanyo 3000H cells u dont have to discharge after each race, that u can just charge back up, and that can be done no more than 3 times to keep them in good order. Aparently they get better as u charge without discharging for those 3 times. Then after the third time u discharge and put charge into them forr storing.

Default Charging/Discharging NiMh Batt's


As long as you allow time for cooling you can charge NiMh's more than once a day. For storage, leave a partial charge in the pack. Discharge the night before and your ready on race day for charging.

You probably wont get an "yes or no" answer on this.

But even though they claim that NiMh dont suffer from "memory" problems, they do. However, I cant tell if 3 times partial charge followed by a full discharge/charge before the next race, will matter much.

Personally I think you'll get the best track-performance by discharging to 5,6 volt between each charge. However, I dont the equipment to measure wethever it's true. Maybe this routine will shorten life a little, but again, I aint got the equipment and time to prove it.

I bought my battery packs from my lhs wich is also a battery supplier for some team drivers, the company is called Pole Position, the owner said to keep packs in good working order, do as follow: charge your pack just b4 running them, once your done racing discharge your pack and let cool down at least 2.5 to 3 hours time.
so far i've followed his instructions and my 4 packs (3000 sanyo's HV) are working flawlessly they peak above 3000mah everytime and give me a good 10-12min on a novak brushless system on unlimited setting.
hope this helps
