Bailey, that's not COOL... To mention the battery matcher...

I don't think its their fault...

Were the batteries performing to your expectations when you first used them?

When did this problem come up?
By 45 seconds to go, do you mean that the cells start to dump at the 4:15 mark?

WOW, that means that your battery pack is dumping at around 2200mahr...
IB's rarely dump before they get to 3550mahr...some start dumping at around 3700mahr

I did not mean any disrespect. I love Integy products. I sent you a PM.
I own 8 different Integy products and use them almost every day.

Bill,

Thanks, I am doing my best to pass accurate and reliable information.

The website will be growing on an ongoing basis. This is just the beginning.

Did you read the article that I wrote on DEAD SHORTING in the FAQ section.
This is the link
http://www.axxis-racing.com/faq.html...7D5B6C038D3E31

It has some very intertesting facts and figures...

hey batt man. i have 1b3800s and gp3700s. do i have to wory about the 030 hurting GP cells likfe the IBs if i let the voltage go to low or are teh 3700s pretty robust like the 3300s where you can just about take them down to zero with not causeing to much harm?

I want to clarify one thing.
The issue with the IB's not going down to 0 volts has NOTHING TO DO WITH NOT BEING AS ROBUST. In fact, the IB is an EXTREMELY ROBUST CELL.
Just look at the current v. voltage characteristics of the IB3800.


The issue with the IB loosing capacity when being taken down past 0.5 volts has nothing to do with the robust issue, it has to do with the chemical and material characteristics of the cell. NiMh cells ARE NOT DESIGNED to be discharged to 0 volts, even GPs.

That being said, I have not done enough tests on the latest GP3700 cells to tell if they will get damaged or if you will gain anything by discharging this way... SORRY!

However, in my opinion, it is better NOT TO DISCHARGE the batteries down to 0 volts.
Most (if not all) cells loose ENERGY (POWER) when they are discharged to 0 volts.

Default Questions for Batt_Man

I was impressed reading your site.

Two questions:

1) What is your impression of using the Trinity DynaPulse or equivalent

2) Is it posted anywhere (so you don't have to re-explain) what causes the initial 25 seconds of voltage to be higher during your run if you charge at more than 6 amps (let's say 7 amps for the first 3000 and then drop to 5 amps)? I realize it is chemical reaction but just interested.

thanks

Barrys,

Thanks!

I will PM you the answers within the next 24 hrs.

I do not want to post the answers on the Forum.
I am sure you understand why.

Hello,

I run today 2 fesh packs of Ib3800 from Much More.

I wasn't happy. I dumped with both of them (4.20) with fresh cut motor while next run was with a used Peak GP3700 were I had more power and lasted longer (5.20) (same gear, brush everything). I used same charging method on IB as on GP.

Does IB need some runs to perfrom well?
Should I use different charging method for IB?

Thank you

Nick

I know others have found you may have to regear (down a tooth or so) to balance out the extra speed you get with the added voltage.
