Default EP4600 cells charging information

Another newbie back to racing question. I have Trinity EP4600 cells what voltage do I charge them at? I am using a MRC 977 Super Brain charger. Do I discharge them after every run

charge at 6-8 amps

never leave the pack for more than a day dis-charged...always keep about 1500 mah in the pack while not in use.

If you keep 1500 mah in the pack do you discharge before fully charging for the next race? And do you discharge to a certain cutoff?

I usually charge at 4.6A. Put 1000-1500 mha after race. If stored for over 2 weeks, discharge and put another 1000-1500 mha. Before race discharge and equalize to 1v.

So far, cells have been extremely consistent with these procedures.

it is a good idea to use a 0-30 from integy or a trinity DPD to equalize the cells before charging..you need to do this before each charge...i run oval and we are anal about our charge dis-charge methods.......

also the ener-g and ep cells do hold up alot better than anything out in 07.
