Well for charging most people use 6.0A and Discharge at 30Amps, but i dont think you can discharge at 30amps on that charger. For the .mv everyone has different opinions i set it at 50mv.

But after everytime you charge and run, and get off you should discharge and then tray them. Should only used them 2-3 times in one day (thats for one pack)

hope it helps

I charge at 6 amps. I adjust the mv based on temperature. I aim for 120-130 degrees (f) right when it peaks. Right now it is set at 30 but I have had to go as high as 50.

Dik Yarx: yes...

It should be mV, but some state it as MV...

M=Mega
m=Milli

But, anyway, yes...

Hi,

Its a voltage drop measurement used to determine the peak, i.e. once the battery drops 30mV (while charging) the charger considers it a peak and shuts off.

The higher the # the longer the charger will go before shutting off so the pack will be hotter.

For me & 6 cells 30mV works good on new packs, 40-50mV for older packs. Safest bet is 30-40 and if your older pack is cool when the charge is done just repeak and keep checking it till it warms up a little. Its better than toasting the new packs with too high of a mV setting.

Traying your cells before charging is rather important, if you dont chances are you'll end up with various temps on the cells, some extremely hot and some cool. Some of the cells stay good and some go down hill quickly.
