Rowdy: I'm not sure how to exactly figure it out but I know it's based on how many seconds it took to charge at whatever amp rate you charged. Example if you charge at 1 amp and it took 3600 seconds that means it took 1000 mAh of charge or 1 amp.

Doug Gaut: The shipment we sent out was really small and is sold out but we hope to release more by the end of next week.

Danny: I'm getting the SMC Sanyo 3000HV very soon, but not sure about the good avg volts range. My LHS informed me the best packs he has are around [email protected] discharge.

Are those packs with more than 1.148V rating , i.e., >1.150V available??

Please advise the I.R. rating as well.

Many Thanks.

What is the part number on the box?

Our SVPS3006SV is our top of the line cells and the SVPS3006PV is the next level down. What we put in each group all depends on the date codes. The SV group has 1.15 +.

The IR will range from 3.2 - 3.7.

im not sure if this answers your question -

divide the no. of seconds (charge time) by 3600 then multiply it by the charge rate

for example, charge time is 2200 sec, charge rate is 5 amps

2200 / 3600 = 0.61
0.61 x 5000 = 3055.56

i think this is the no. displayed at the end of a charge on the novak millenium. hope this helps

Ian: After you have used your pack and discharged it you should place it on a tray. This will bring up the voltage and lower the IR.

Ian: You can leave them in for a few hours or overnight it doesn't really matter. Leave them stored straight off the tray with no charge.

Danny, i have just purchased 5 packs of 3000hv's and also an eagle auto cut discharge tray as well........ The question i have is what is the "conditioning" function on the tray. The instructions say to obviously discharge to 5.4v, first step is equalize the pack and then they say to condition the pack... can u tell me what the advantages/disadvantages of this would be?

opel92, the equalizing function on the Eagle SP Auto Cut Discharge Tray will bring down the voltage of the cells to exactly 0.9V/cell while the condition function just brings the voltage further down to 0.6V/cell. I've been told to only do the conditioning periodically (once every 10 or so cycles) because bringing down the voltage of the HV's this low everytime is detrimental (Danny kindly correct me if I'm wrong) to the cells. Equalizing the pack to 0.9V/cell everytime is good for the pack.

Danny

I'm just an average office worker and when it comes to buying new things for RC, budget is the main concern! I plan to buy an additional pack, since my rc-3000H are not doing good anymore. I've read all your advices since the 1st page of this forum. Your advice to treat HV as nicads has cause a lot of stir here in our club, specially on the charging amp rate and volt. threshold, since most of my co racers are using smh. My rc3000h can't cope up with them anymore.
Since this HV have been around for almost a year now, using your recommended settings and assuming following proper care and maintenance, How long will be the life expectancy of the HV in the competitative level?
I'm using 10 to 12t dbl motors, whats your advice? Should I buy 3000HV or just rc2400? I've been a Sanyo user since i started this hobby, and my nicads lasts longer than my nimhs.
