I have read on some web sites that the Activator-X is only for Nicads. Can I not use it on my GP3300s?

I think, but don't take my word for it, that the Activator-X works fine with Ni-MH. People used to say you should never take Ni-MH down to zero volts, but that view has changed.

I believe the Zero-Equalizer has "Ni-MH" printed on it, and for all I know it works just like the Activator-X, only with a higher discharge rate.

We've used various trays and discharge devices and just bought an Indi Octane 2 on the recommendation of a fellow racer at our track. It's made a believer of us -- discharges at 20 amps, built in fan and will drop cells to zero. You can leave cells on the tray with no problems. SMC recommends this tray for 3300s, we're told.

We took 3300 packs we used to discharge first with an Indi 20 and then put on a Rayspeed tray. Then put the pack on the Octane 2 for about an hour. Pack charged to higher mah and stayed cooler at peak. If it remains reliable, we'll get rid of the other two devices.

I have a question for you guys, I got my Integy Indi Zero-Equalizer and it did not have any directions at all. Does it matter witch way the cells are in the pack? and what does the red LED mean when it is blinking. When I put all the cells in the tray the red LED only starts blinking when I have the last cell conected is this normal? Please let me know

Thanks a lot

Chris

Have a look around on the Integy Discharger Forums. A lot of good stuff relating to their 30 or so dischargers.

Thanks so much, The red light just shows you the battery is still being discharged. When each cell reach 0.5V, the red LED light goes out.
