Smile Question??

Hello!!! I just graduated from TAMIYA stick packs (!finally!)!!

I am still a novice driver and race only stock.

I have four new sets of Sanyo 3000 HV's (not matched)

My question is, my charger is not as high tech as the ones you guys are using, I only use an LRP Quadra Charger(NiMh compatible) and is only capable of charging of up to 5.5amps maximum.

AT what amps should I charge the HV's????

I already have a bulb discharger with a cut off at 5.4V.



I have read the this thread from page one to the last and have not encountered anyone using the LRP Quadra Charger with the Sanyo 3000 HV's, Please don't tell me to buy a new charger......


Thanks in advance!!

Tel me. . . . . where could I buy driving skills??? hehehehehehe

Only everyone

I agree, they are a good battery. I still haven't totally made up my mind as to which is better, panasonic or sanyo, but I think I prefer the SMH/UMH for mod.

HVs are a good robust battery though. Probably depends more on how good the packs are between the panasonics and sanyos instead of a winner.

lem2 - Charge them at 5.5 amps. Your charger will work fine, but a charger might be something you consider upgrading in the future.

Sanyos have always been able to top Panosonics and they are more rubust to boot..

I charge my HV's at 6amps to 8amps.

proudwinner - yes they do. I'll do a test tomorrow and show you the results. I'll cylcle them once, then let them rest for 3 hours, then cycle them again and give you numbers.

They should be good right from the get go, but they will get even better after four or five runs.

If you only have the one pack, there's no point to rematching.
