Here's some charging instructions i got from a card that came with the cells:
1. The intellect battery works better at high temperature. Best environmental temp is 25-30C
2. Please charge the battery at 6A in order to get the best average voltage value. And be sure not to cool down the battery by using fan, etc.(Cut-off setting :-dV/cell = 0.005-0.01V; -dV/6 cell = 0.03-0.04mV)

If the battery is charged around 4A, it does not reach the best average voltage value. Consequently, the battery does not release its full power.

I'm sorry if you didn't get any card
But i bought 3 boxes of the cells and i only got 1 tiny card anyway.
All that is in the card, I have copied it in my previous posting, unless of course you want the chinese version

Guys, I ran a cycle on my 10A discharger:
5A charge,5mV delta.At 10A discharge;
Avg - 7.414V
Discharge capacity : 3599mAh - Yeah BABY!!
IR - 46m Ohm

compared to a matched GP3300 pack(1.156V,422s,3.1IR) that i have( very new, 6-7 cycles old),
5A charge,5mV delta.At 10A discharge;
Avg - 7.423V
Discharge capacity : 3280
IR - 50m Ohm

I would say numbers look very good.Unfortunately today i couldn't make it with the cells to the track. No actual usage report.

Just got my last batch of 3600's yesterday and Over the next week or so I will put them through the testing phases to see whats what.
So far to date the three four cell packs I have been driving with have given me great performance and runtimes. I will see how these new six cell packs compare with a newer 3600 Sanyo matched pack I got from Itegy. I will post the results soon.
Thanks,
Stephen <><

What is a good starting point for the first charge of a 6 cell pack? Unmatched 3600.

Yeah what Pro4Capece asked...

rcstation got a new shipment in the end of last week, and I have 3 sets of 6 otw as we speak.. (3600's)

I'd like to know the best way to treat these cells. I don't race so I am not looking for uber punch, just decent power and runtime. (learning to drive... between the boards...)

Same question, but I want to get ubber punch and I don't care about the life of the cells or runtime.

As mentioned earlier in the thread it is recommended to charge the cells at 6A, to give them punch..
If you don`t care about the "life of the cells" & runtime, I`m sure you could charge them at 10A.

I believe they should be stored with a partial charge to get the most out of them later. That is also the way I recieve my cells from rcstation.
I tried deadshorting them, but that made them loose lots of runtime, abut 700mah, although they got a bit more Voltage in the very next charge.

These cells seem to like top be charged at about 6.5~7amps with a .03 cut off per cell

Were using .03 for the entire pack or 30mvwhich is the same as .03.

I know you advocate charging at 6 amps but have you tested other charge rates with these cells and if so what were your results.

Can anyone confirm that IB3600 cannot be discharged below .9 volts? I heard that some people discharge them to 0 volts before charging with good results. I don't mean deadshorting just traying the packs until the lights go out and then charge immediately. Discharger I have are a Novak Smart Tray and Much More Zero. Any help would be good.

Yes you can put them on your team much more tray prior to charging the pack. 5-10 minutes willbe fine.
