Cool

well said danny.

given that most major battery matchers use the competition electronics brand turbomatchers, it also makes sense to use a competition electronics charger such as the pitbull. they have been leaders in charger technology for so many years... its a worthwhile investment to protect your batteries.

Is the Integy 16x3 Pro v2.5 considered a High-end charger?

Danny
When you say "traying" your cells what exactly do you mean? I have a couple of Trinity real time 2's. Do I tray them till the lights go out or leave them on the tray untill next time I use them? Or do you reccomend a differnt type of tray?

The 16x3 2.5 is a good charger, but if i remember right it does not have adjustable peak detection. The 16x5 and 16x9 both have the adjustable peak detection, as well as a lot of other capabilities.

Default Storing...

Need some help with my HV's, they haven't been performing very well. I used them in the main yesterday, and they had less punch than my year old 2400s. How would you recomend storing them? I have been taking them down to 5.4 and storing them. Right now they only have about 2500mihr.

Thanks,
speedo

ottoman: After your pack has been discharged to 5.4 volts you should put in your Trinity tray for half an hour or so and then take it off. Then let the pack rest until next time you plan on using them.

speedo: HV's seem to lose voltage if you don't tray them so this is probably what has happened to yours. You can start traying them or you can maintenance zap them which should help.

Danny,

What if I trayed them before I charge them instead of after I discharge them. In other words, run them, discharge to 5.4 volts (6 cells), let them rest untill I need them again, tray them and charge again. This is how I was told to do it. Would this be bad for the cells (SMH or HV's)

Thanks

I know of some racers who do this. It's hard for me to know every method and what it does. Try it and see.

I have been traying them before I charge them, but would you recomend storing them trayed? (not in the tray but after being trayed)

Thanks,
Speedo

One more question, I am getting ready to rematch a bunch of 3000hv's on my Turbo Matcher 4, how would u setup the matcher to do this? I allready did 12 cells with a 6amp charge, .05dropback, 30ampdischarge, and in NiMh mode. Thanks in advance.

The question may have been asked before but can I use my E24 version Tekin BC112A to charge these 3000HVs?

And is there anyone who does upgrading for these BC112As to a NiMH compatible version?

first reaction: no, cause Tekin itself reckons that you would need the H18 software or higher for NiMH.

But, and this is a big but, with Danny of SMC recommending a .07 delta peak for these HVs, I would think that your charger will be set for it.

See, most of the charger manufacturers will tell you they are not nimh compatible if their peak detection can't detect a delta of .04 or less, or somewhere around that value. Now, a .07 delta is almost like a charging curve for a nicd.

I would say that it's safe for it. Although if I were you, I would like to hear from the experts here, don't take my word for it

Just my 2 cents worth on the topic....
