Just prior to charging your pack when you put in a tray do the lights all shutoff at about the same time ?

Not at all. They have never done that since the first cycle. I was curious about that, but these being my first IB cells I thought they were just needing a few cycles to "jump" start them all.

If the lights shut down earlier on the 3 cells that are getting hotter they most likely have lower runtime thus making them peak earlier and getting hotter.

They are nornally all over the place, but this last time the lights stayed on the first 3 longer and the #1 cell stayed on for a minute longer than the rest.

Now what do I do to get them to charge? (besides smashing them with a hammer)!!LOL

Hi Danny

I have been playing with my APS Charger and was curious when you reccomend a specific temp cutoff like 130F, is this still during the charge cycle that the best performance can be reached at between 130-140F or what I measured was a continued rate of temp increase after charging has been completed. If you want to maintain a max 130F temp, then cutoff should be set lower.

Do you agree or can you provide more information?

Thanks

The temp I reccomend is taken with a Raytek temp gun once the pack peaks. I'm not sure if a temp probe will have the same result. Typically the temp will be in this range when using a 20-30 mv peak detect for the entire pack with a 6 amp charge.

Hi Danny

Thanks for all the advice. I Currently use a 20A discharger to 5.4V or 3.6V and then before recharging, I use a Rayspeed equalizer. It has a 5A equalize then a 1A condition mode to 0.9V per cell. Based on your website, it seems you reccomend the Integy 030 which takes the cells down to 5.4V per pack but indivually to 0 V but you reccomend to remove when lights go out which is probably around 0.9 to 0.5V per cell.

I agree the best way to discharge is individually. Do you have any other reeccomendations for dischargers such as ?

Thanks

I notice if you put to much heat to the positive side on the cell will
not only make them vent but can do damage to the cell.

Default Stock only racing

I just starting using the IB3800 this weekend. Also I have read most of the posts on how to care and maintain them. But it seems the recommendations were for maintaining or increasing run time. Since I am only racing stock is there any difference in the care and maintainance to maintain or increase voltage instead of runtime?

What do you normally set the cut-off at on a Integy 19X9v6 for IB3800's? Right now I have it at 3mV/C 18 mv/P. What does each one mean and how does it affect charging by decreasing or increasing it? thanks!

Nope,nothing needs to be done to increase the voltage in the IB's,it's already there.You'll only kill'em by tryin.
