I have a Tekin 112A charger with H27 software, so according to the manufacturer I could charge ni-mh cells with it. Has anyone tried how well it works?

Tekin's website finally bit the dust about a month ago.

Eetu, I've used my 112a(with the same h27 firmware as yours) on my 3000HV's, & it seemed to work just fine. However, I still prefer to use my Millenium for them(because of the greater adjustability of the voltage threshold), & mostly use the 112a for the 2400 NiCd's I use in my stock TC.....

What do you guys think about HV v.s. UMH?

I haven't heard too many people talking much about the UMH performance, and i may be looking at getting a couple new battery packs in a couple weeks, i just don't know which cells.

???

Just bought orion matched packs HV batteries. Some suggest to charge it first using a low ampere settings and discharge and some says charge it fully using amp rating of 6A.

Need your advise.

I've never charged my HV's under 5 amps.

I generally charge them at 6amps.

wacky, they're matched packs which means that they've been cycled already. Charge them at the same amps that they were charged during matching.

does the voltage enhancment process wear off the HV cells after about 20 or so cycles, ie do they need to be mantainence zapped periodicly to keep the voltage high. What have others found is the expected life of the cells if treated hard, like 8amp charge and 30amp discharge.

I've had my HV's about six months, being used hard (2-3 cycles per meeting, 6A charge, racing at least once a week, running mod on a twisty track with a punchy thumb, not letting them get as cool as I really should before recharging (oops)), and they're still great, with the numbers virtually the same as when they were new.

TSR6 - the UMH cells have more punch and power over the voltage curve. the hv's are good early but drop off a lot more then the UMH will. u can turnlaps as fast at the end of the race w/ UMH as when u started where as the hv can drop upto .2 seconds per lap (approx)

anyone heard anything on gp3300 cells yet? how much longer run time are they expecting? is the voltage comparable to umh?

shrekair: What your reporting is strange because we have seen the exact opposite when we tested Sanyo's against Panasonics.

The Sanyo cell does need to be charged with a higher peak detect. If you use a low peak detect the cells will be 10-15 deg. farenheit cooler than a Panasonic cell. We have found that higher charge rates will result in more power with the HV's.
