JDXray,

He said something about a 60 dollar charger. I don't think he has a voltage threshold cutoff option. (i think)

I would be that is the problem.....

Pink Pac Man,

What charger are you using?

what kind of voltage cutoff are you using? a cutoff of between .03 and .04 is what you should be looking for. Any higher than that and your cells will get hot even charging at 3 amps

Farenheit. in celcius that would be over boiling point... (212*F+/100*C+)

Go the CDC. I upgraded to one just a few weeks ago, and I noticed the improvement on the track... Not to mention you can see how many mAh the charger has pumped into your cells, you can discharge, charge at up to 7amps and even re-peak (or boost, as the CDC calls it..)

Oh yeah,. whats with the pink? :/

Makes sense to me, and explains something i saw today... Last weekend I changed all my packs as I always do for the weekends racing, and one of them (a GP3300, 6 cells) took over 4000mAh, I wasnt using any fans.

Today, I charged that same pack using the same peak detect settings and at the same charge rate (amps) settings, and it stopped at 3200mAh. I used my fans on this pack.

Interesting, indeed. May be better to cool them naturally by the looks..

Note=You do NOT wanna run a fan on your packs ever unless something happens and you overcharge a pack.
You will loose MAH,Voltage and will raise the IR if you use a fan while charging.Major Performance loss and a chance to really hurt the cell.

PinkPacMan-Your not doing anything wrong.THE CHARGER is.
You guys have CDC over there and we have Integy(Same thing pretty much).
You can take a GP3300 pack and charge it at 6.0amps on the 16x3,16x4 version which is suppose to SELF detect voltage threshold and the pack will come off VERY hot.
You can take that same pack and charge it 6 amps on a 16x5,16x7,or a 16x9 and adjust it to 5mv/c-40mv/p (6 cell) and it wont be as hot.It's ALL about voltage threshold or Peak detection.

PinkPacMan-The saddest thing I see is guys buying $45.00-70.00 packs and then using a $40.00 chargers.
As soon as you possibly can upgrade your charger.
Since you have the charger you have USE A FAN.It's better to loose a lil performance than to overheat the pack.

BONUS- Being those new hand held temp guns are $25.00 it's smart to grab one even if running electric.
Optimum Temp is 120F-130F.If it's getting hotter than this(Depending on surroundings) then you can LOWER your threshold setting from 5mv/c or .05 to 3mv/c or .03

I hope this helps out guys.

the CDC is worth the money. Mine is just over a year old and it has been the desire of many of the guys at the track. Although I did just get the GM GMVIS Commander and this charger is not for the timid and not to be bought by the rookie racer. It is now my favorite charger.............but I still love my CDC and won't part with it. If you can only afford a lower cost charger than check everyone's favorite auction site. That is were I got my CDC for $60USD
Hope this helps

The GMVIS will possibly be my next charger, I need to be able to program my SX9 somehow! Otherwise it'l be a CDC.
