Default What gives with my 3700's

Why are my 3700's VENTING!! I had purchased the team 3700's and my one pack is venting! I have a duratraxx Ice with a temp sensor, temps get no higher then 110 F . And i discharge them at 30 amps using a integy dicharge box. Now should i throw them on the smart tray?


Thanks

I heard somewhere that the IP3800's are IB3600's in different shrink wrap. Is this true?

EDWARD2003... We haven't received your GP3700 pack yet.


Team Duratrax... The IP3800 cells are different than IB3600s, IB3800s and GP3700s.

So far, we are very happy with the performance of the IP cells. And we are convinced that the IP3800 is currently the best cell in stock/19T racing because of the extremely low IR. This is our opinion. And I know that they are working very hard to improve the cells, so the IP3800s are getting better and better. The recent batches of cells have more runtime. And actually, from the last shipment we just received, the runtime is now getting close to the IB's.

ngo8... The information below is what we have found to work the best with the Infinite Power 3800 cells. I hope you can try your new packs soon! Feel free to post any other questions.

PROPER CHARGE, DISCHARGE AND STORAGE FOR YOUR IP 3800s :

1. Discharge your pack at 30 Amps down to 5.40 V for 6 cell and 3.60V for a 4 cell.

2. Equalize your IP3800 pack on the Novak Smart Tray down to 0.9V per cell.

3. Charge with a linear 6 Amp charge. A 5 Amp charge would give you slightly more runtime.

Peak Detect. (Voltage threshold) :
6 cell packs : 0.05 V (50mV)
4 cell packs : 0.03 V (30mV)

For maximum performance, try to get your pack to peak just before your race. Repeak with the same settings if the pack has been sitting for more than 15 minutes. If your pack peaked less than 15 minutes before your race, you may repeak with a lower peak detect (0.01V)

4. Discharge: After the race, discharge the pack at 30 Amps down to 5.40 V for 6 cell pack and 3.60V for a 4 cell pack.

5. Storage: Let your pack cool down and then put approx. 1000mAh of charge (600 seconds at 6A) back into the pack before storage. *If you run your pack a second time in the same race day, you want to skip step 5 between the runs. For stock/19T, 2 runs per day is fine with a minimum of 4 hours between runs.


So far, our tests have shown that the IP3800 cell doesn’t like to be discharged down to 0.0V on a tray. We recommend 0.9V per cell.

Regarding the step charging, we unfortunatly haven't done a lot of testing yet. We have a few racers currently experiencing with step charging and so far they haven't seen any real benefit. But we'll continue to test.

These procedures may change as we are getting more experience with the IP3800 cells. We will update the information here.

Hi H-A
I just wanted to confirm you that the IP3800 are awesome!, they just have lots of power.... As you saw last sunday my car was ballistic with those batts, too bad I wasn't lucky in the A-main....my motor came loose.
Keep up the good work!!!

Hi H-A!
Thanks again for last weekend. I qualify 1st B-main with GP3300 and then put IP3800 for the final in my car and it was a lot different. Won the B-main and got third overall! Those batts have a lot of power!
