Most people on RC tech buy thier cells, telling them to dead short and charge at 10A is telling them to damage thier cells and be out of pocket in a hurry. I'm sure your sponsor would appreciate this.

(Thanks for the backup guys)

lickrim, your obviously very egocentric. hope you know what that means. Your sponsors must be brain blank if they already know what you do to your cells. and i think its how YOU do it in YOUR LITTLE WORLD. the rest of cali is probably against your stupid methods.

dude, try to keep on subject.

my god shut up talking like some type of big shot gangster. No-one here cares about 'how you do it in cali' Shut up and talk about step charging, if you havent got anything else to say on the matter then fine. If thats how you charge your cells, fine i havent got a problem with that but stop bitching about how good you do and how bad everyone else does, as there are a few guys on here who could easily kick your arse no doubt.

When you win a world championship come back and preach about how good you are!

Back onto step charging, I saw Hara's charging setup in a magazine not so long ago and im remember that in the middle of his charge he had a time between i think 3300mah and 3700mah where he only charged at 0.3amp or something really low. Why would he have done this as in his other steps he charged at 7A.

thanks

The second phase is at a very low rate in order to cool off the cells before hitting them with another hard charge.

hey crimson eagle, nothing against you, I totally respect your opinion.
would you please post your results, Iīm sure the benefits are only marginal in punch, maybe runtime is very little improved cause of low charging current phase, your setting isnīt much different from linear charge,how long is you 7amp hard pulse phase?
Donīt get me wrong, but I saw almost no improvements in tests, these cells really need heat to perform at its fullest.

i would agree that step charging is not so good with stock racing, however it has seemed to help guys who run mod, just cuase of the 10% added run time (give or take).
i myself do run stock & tried step charging last weekend, all my pack's felt flat (no punch) then i switched back to normal charging at 6.0amp & it was much better. allthough they where new pack's.

His name is Charlie Albrecht and probably is still sponsored. He's been racing forever. He races at SoCal in Hb. As far as he maturity thing goes..... well we all play with little toy cars so I know I am not going to get into a maturity debate with anyone here.

Nice way to avoid my point lickrim. I did not say that I had a problem for what you do at big races. I have a problem that you are telling other racers to do. I imagine most of them who only race at local events and you are telling them to charge at crazy amperages and waste thier cells in a hurry. I know at big events you do what you have to do to win but 95% of the people here are not in the top 5% of the hobby. These guys want to keep thier cells for 6 -12 months maybe even more. Doing what you say is not going to achieve that.

Back to the point of the thread. If you look at the attached pic you will see the results from a test run I did which is posted on my website. The results are from a test run comparing multi phasic charging and linear charging with four cycles of each method. The cycles were all done on the same set of cells over a period of four days. Run time, voltage and punch (power %age) are all improved with Multi Phasic charging.

the .03amp rate is to purge the gas build up in the cell....that how we do it ....you guys are so bitchy ..come on folks we race toy cars for bowling trophys....give me a break ..you guys are the fastest KEYBOARD racers on the planet...im better than you UK
