I guess I have to dissagree... after using the BattMan for a month I noticed no improvements when I cycled my packs on my GFX... nor on the track, so I sold mine also. Your results my differ but this is what I found.
I now rotate in new packs more often and use the money I saved by not buying the latest battery discharger... condidtioner... charger... or whatever

read thru the thread its always the same handfull of people giving biased reviews and "expert" testimonial on the product, makes it look like a better product than it actually is.... prob just to suck up to the manufacturer.

when i say it does nothing in terms of run time (actually decresing runtime) and IR and track performance, i get slammed. its just my unbiased findings.

hmmm, XingXing do you realize that the result you are getting is actually good? if you don't understand, then forget about it...

i had some gp3300's, that charged only to 3000mah, so these would of been perfect to test out. well after using the batt manager it didnt do anything in terms of run time. it does however do a deep discharge to below 0.9v/cell (tested it was around 0.3v/cell) so obviosly when it takes more out you can put more energy back in, but it does NOT give back lost run time from a older pack, only gives the impression it gives more run time.

if i charge straight after using the battery manager it does give a few 100mah more. but if you disharge on a regular dishcarger and tray it, then charge it again it would only go back to the original 3000.

actually i had a few packs of near new stickpack gp3300's that were cahrging to 3600 before i used spintec and after using spintec it now only charged to 3000!!! i sold it soon afterwards

Biased NO...Sponcered NO...

And from the posts you wrote yourself you explained you tried it on older packs.
Now here is where two things may have accured. One you aren't keeping to a strict procedure.
Like fifteen of the so called biased opinions have mentioned.
Or the old pack you were charging was already so deteariated that it wasn't going to come up anyhow...
Perhaps you would like to sell me yours...
PM me I could always use another one....
But I am only giving my unbiased opinion and anyone who knows me I try all the new stuff out and if it isn't worth it's salt than I state so. So no suck up nor Biased.
I hope that you either sell yours to someone who might actually use it, or start using it like the other people here have suggested.
Now let us return to the antisipated arrival of the ICC.
Thank You,
-Shookie <><

I race quite a bit. Came up with my own discharging method. I now have a hard time buying new batteries, because my batteries haven't fades after four months. First I use my Integy 20 amp discharge next for 20 minutes I put the pack on the spintech then put the pack on my novak smart tray to point 1 and after it reaches point 1, I put the smart tray to Dead Short. When my packs were new, they charged to 4100. And now they charge between 4000mah to 4100mah. I don't know if this is smart, but it works for me.

oh yeah and not to mention the spintec never had any reliable numbers... i charge a Ib3600, it takes about 4000mah, and i use spintec and it says discharge capacity is 5500mah the laws of pyhsics say that you cant take out more energy than you put in... but this device should win the nobel price for defying science

Where are they now ?

......They come, ......and they go !

Compare to CE turbo 35, the ICC is quite small.
