just charge them first, without a discharge.

Charge them as you would normally - i.e. fast charge, not a trickle

I would charge tham at 6Amps, let them sit for about 30 seconds and then discharge at 20Amps until they hit 5Volts. Leave the packs to rest for a couple of hours, then repeat the process.
Then you can store them, as is.
When it comes time to run the packs in a car, I charge at 6Amps and run 5 minutes then tray them. It seems OK to run them twice a day but I wouldn't do anymore than that.

On my race days I run mine 3 times a day (usually twice) and they perform the same as they did back when I got them at Christmas.

SoSidge: What's wrong with trickle? Is it going to ruin the batteries?

it's just that the cells are designed for fast charge - people seem to think you should treat the cells gently at first, but forget that a matched pack has already been cycled several times under high load.

Another charging question. I use an Indi 16x5 running off a car battery charging the 3000HV. During charging the voltage fluctuates around a lot around .1 to .2 volts instead of climbing in a nice steady fashion. This has happened to my batteries before and tends to indicate a dead pack I think. Any ideas?
