Make sure that you can charge the Li-Ion&Polimer upto 11.1V (3cell) with the Cell Master.
I have not used my Cell Master to charge any LiPo cells yet. I will try and let you know later.

For all the guys intrested I will be posting the settings for charging in step mode that I used at the Reedy race. I switched at the race to much more products and all I can say is the price is worth it. I have never had so much punch out of my batteries. During practice I used a couple packs that have about 6 months of abuse while being dead shorted. I used the step charge method and they ran like a raped Ape. This charge method works. Sorry I dont have the settings here to list but the wait will be worth it. To those that dont have the charger better get with the program get one!

I've been trying a few step charging methods with GP3300 & GP3700's - Very interesting

Which step charge should I increase if runtime was ok? 1/3, 2/3 or 3/3??

Thanks

Thanks Keith!

Now, is anyone using the MR fan with their charger? If so, do you guys set it to go on during certain temp on charge, and/or discharge? Now, the debate has always been let the cells cool off naturally, so how would the fan enhance charging or discharging?

Dom

Hi all, I just got this charger and was wondering what settings people use to step charger ib3600's? If it works or not for them.

Thanks.

Okay, now that I have finally, found the settings for step charging ib3600's, my question is........does it make any difference? does it harm the cells? what performance gains do you get? basically, the pros and cons of step charging for these cells. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Here is the info I found on step charging ib3600's:

Intellect 3600 non matched

CTX-CHG

1/3 3100mAh > 6.5A > Flex-no

2/3 3120mAh > 0.1A > Flex-no

3/3 3900mAh > 5.2A > delta peak 12mV , temp cut 48C

Repeak x2 > delay 5:00 > Repeak capacity limit 250mAh

I havent found any negatives with step charging .
Step charging pending your setting will give you more punch and longer run times. Also added benifit while keeping your batteries cooler they live longer because they arent killed by the heat. I dont see any negatives other then I wish they were free .

i agree with hector there... my practice packs are getting longer run times while also retaining its punch (although the batteries are dying since i use them constantly).

it also helps to have the Team Much More Zero trays for each pack.

hi ryan! keith! jk! whats up guys.

Just another question, how does everyone keep the temperature probe on their batteries? I am using tape at the moment and it is rather annoying. Any ideas or alternatives???
