Default normal?

i got a pack of 1800 nicad 6 cell the other day, i was in white shrink wrap with no labels but only " 1800 mah nicd 7.2v" stick pack form with 18 awg wires.

when i charged it @4A. it wen up to around 2500 mah and peaked at 9.82 volts without false peaking throughout the charge.

all my GP3300s peak at around 9.21 @4.5A. so im just wondering if the extra volts are because they are nicads.

If I remember right, the Nicd cells did yield higher voltage. It's been years though...

Usually the high voltage peak would indicate a high internal resistance. Stick with your GP's.

(The best of the matched ni-cads 2400s)did yield higher peak voltage than the first generation of stock metal hydryde 3000 packs, but they all pale by comparison in every aspect of the last few generations of GP3300s....and Niel is right, most of that higher peak voltage is just internal resistance......I have a couple of 1400 nicad packs (for starter box use)that peak out at 11.60volts but during a 20amp discharge(basicly what a stock motor would draw)they discharge with a very low adverage voltage in less than 3 minutes.............

Default Eagle Racing SP Saddle Auto-Cut Discharger - enquiries!

Hi, I just bought Eagle Racing SP Saddle Auto-Cut Discharger 3 days ago from our own Local Hobby Shop and tested yesterday. I have noticed that when am in step 1 - Equalizing mode I've been hearing some clicking sounds inside (from the relay's I think) and it gives some burning smell I was worried whether this click sounds is abnormal and will damage the thing. Would appreciate to know from you guys outhere. Thanks!


cheers,

Might be the resistor buring in, if so it's normal.

Default Saddle pack discharger

I have bought the same thing, gives out the burning smell within two weeks.

Have some friends that have the same discharger, all of them their discharger cannot function properly either conditioning or equalizing mode cannot work ... this discharger quality is really bad.
