O Kay. Update. The Gp cells got warm under these settings, so I feel good about it. The new Yokomo Matched Team Cells (Yokomo Peak Matched Z3300HVR SG1) got hot. Thes are the newest cells and factory guys like Chris Tosolini are using them. Does anyone know what I should be charging them at. Oh BTW, I'm charging at 5.1A.

The 2500 mAh setting doesn't affect when the peak cutoff is.

The charger uses it to calculate the level of trickle charge (which you should have switched off), and the amount of partial charge it puts in (there is a partial charge option, that's a percentage of the figure you set for the capacity).

Trickle charge turned off? I don't see that as an option. Since I'm charging at 5.1A doesn't that mean it isn't on trickle charge? Also, I don't see a partial charge option. Should I just watch it and unplug the alligator clips when it reaches a certain level?

Maybe you have an older version of the charger, mine is a v6.

Hate to break it to you but Chris Tosolini is a Fukuyama Team driver. He Runs GP3300's.

As far as where to set the delta peak, I set mine to 55mv on my LRP and my cells are just fine. They hit about 135* every time. This is chaging @ 5 amps for mod. If I'm charging @ 6 amps for 19 turn or God forbid I have to run stock, I'll drop it a little.

Thanks for the input. I'll take some temp readings and see what I get.
