Hey Danny... the Zero-30 takes cells down to 0 volts.

I'm having trouble reconciling your recommendation to use the Zero-30 and your recommendation to bring cells to .9V... seems like the two are in conflict. Am I missing something?

Use the zero-30 until the lights just go out - that's right at .9/cell.

Bob: After you run the packs bring them down to .90 per cell using a discharger like the T-35. If you race the packs weekly leave them alone. If your going to store them for a few weeks put 500 seconds of charge back in the pack before storing it.

Next time you race your pack place it on a tray that will bring down each cell fairly fast like the APEX 20A/DTX 20A or Integy 0-30A. Leave it on this for a few minutes after the lights go out. Then start charging it. So far this has given good results. So far this has been working fairly well.

So the zero 30, you have to keep an eye on it for when the lights go out? That wouldn't be a good thing for me.

I gave up on the IB's. I have tryed everything, and I get them to come around. Maybe I will try rezapping them.

Just ordered GP 3700's.

Hey Boomer, thanks for the word...

I read my Zero-30 instructions again, and saw no mention of the "when the lights go out voltage"... so I assumed it was happening at zero volts.

how'd you come by this info? Voltmeter?

Ummm, trial and error mostly.

I guess it's from the old lightbulb thing (minus the cutoff, which seems to cut off right when the bulbs drop down anyway)

No scientific measuring, although I probably should do that this evening. . .

but, from my old electronics classes, that's around the voltage needed to light a small bulb. . .

Well, I got that batts to work. I took them yesterday, zapped them, let them sit until our race tonight and then flex charged them. Now they work great, where before they weren't even usable. Ye Ha....... I still need to try them in mod, but no one have any motor for me in stock. BTW the 3700's worked great in mod also.

Danny,
How is IB3600 compared to GP3300&GP3700 in terms of voltage, run time, IR and price?
Thanks

More runtime than the 3300, lower IR.....voltage around the same.....price is about the same, maybe a little cheaper than 3300....


3700 more runtime, higher voltage (from the packs that I have seen), a little higher IR......and much more expensive.

Later EddieO

today i finally found out how intellect cells work... after all interesting numbers, i just equalized 2 unmatched IB packs, two unmatched gp 3300 packs and charged at 4 amps.

i have to say that IB packs were much more punchier and higher top speed.

now i can really say that IB cells are good.

So for racing 4wd mod, am I better off buying the IB3600s, or the stick packs of 3300s? The stick packs are $70, and the IBs are $50 (this being the point that is creating my indecision).

Thanks!
