I've noticed something with my battery packs. When I charge the the 3 batteries that are on the negetive side are always hotter (I'm using saddle packs). It wasn't too noticable in the last pack I just did, it was a 5* difference. but the pack before that it was a 30* difference. Any ideas, is this common?

Do you equalize your packs? Ive seen that when I store packs for a long time that the neg side cells take longer to equalize than the pos side ones. Must be all those electrons trying to get out of those wicked Fukuyama packs I have.

I use a Trinity Real Time 2.5 to equalize. But I just recently started using it.
