Default Discharge Details

Hi have just completed a discharge of a fully charged pack and got the following.

The pack is a standard of the shelf pack of GP3700 not matched

Run Time 629
Average volts 7.48
Energy 141
Capacity 5593 (yes I did double check that)
Resistance 49.5

Now how do I interprite these figures is this pack any good and how come the Capacity is so high.

Thanks

Default New Test

One more test on another set

These are GP3300 again off the shelf not matched and known to be the weakest of my Six sets.

Run Time 515
Average Volts 7.45
Energy 115
Capacity 4584
Internal resistance 67.5

The input on these cells is never more than 2700 why is the Capacity showing so high.

Is my BatMan faulty or am I missing something here.

Thanks

Paul

No, Your battery manager is not faulty.

The BatMan always reads out like that.

To be honest I don't really take any notice of what it says, I leave that up to my charger after a cycle. I just use the Spintec battery manager as a maintenance tool. Not to give me figures on my packs.

You can compare Spintec figures to Spintec figures, but don't bother comparing your Spintec figures with your charger figures.

Got a Batman for Christmas, just wondering about a few things though.
I have one battery which I had previoulsy discharged, then had charged again before discharging on the Batman, I got 2348 into the 3300mAH pack, which had been unused for 3 or 4 weeks, and was terrible on punch and runtime, once the Batman had finnished discharging, it had taken out 7218mAH, the next time I discharged it after charging it only took out 58mAH, only 58!!! I know my Batman isn't faulty, it works perfectly on all my other packs, but I'm not sure about this one.
Just want to know if anyone else has had anything similar to this, and if is better to charge a battery fully before discharging, or if you should charge maybe 300mAH then discharge it, which saves time.
Thanks Guys, Ryan

ive noticed that my batteries come out flat if i discharge it down when it is fully charged. best thing to do is to charge your pack, run it on the track for 5 mins or so. then dump the rest of the charge using the Batman. do it consistently and you'll feel a difference.

the smart tray should be set to 0.9v to equalize the entire pack. let your pack rest at least 2-3 hours before using it again. i would equalize the battery before you charge it.

simon, by letting your batteries rest for 2-3 hours, the voltage will rebound. then you can equalize it at 0.9v on your smart tray.

Default Batman and IB 3600 packs

Please forgive me, as I'm a newbe, but I'm a little confussed. Does the Batman work with the 3600 and 3800 packs? Per my ICE charger have some crapy IR on them, 98 and they have been used 5 times, so I thinking that they need to managed better.

Sorry, SMC IB3600
Numbers: 396 sec
1.168 V
1.501 PV (do not know what this is)
2.0 IR

Bars : trinity
I did the solder job, but the fast guys are tell me that job was a good job, used a Dean's jig.

Bought them in Sept 05

My normal day with batteries
I charge the night before (we start at 11:00am)
pack 1 for heat 1
I peak them at the track just before the race
Run a 5min race
take them out, put in pack 2 for heat 2
Peak
run a 5 min race
take them out, put in pack 1 for heat 3
charge
Run a 5min race
take out, let them cool down, then discharge 10amp, Ice charger
Do the same with Pack2 for the main.

Does that help?
