Default IB3600's

Hi all,

Just wanted some feedback about these cells.

1. Charge rates (best performance and long life)
2. Charge type (linear, flex, step)
3. Discharging (is it required?, what to use?)
4. Dead short (is it necessary?)

Experiences with the cells (good and bad)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Wait a couple weeks til the IB3800s come out in good #s.

As far as how I've been taking care of the 3600s...6.0 amp charge-Linear
I dump them after a run. Then right before I charge them I put them on a Novak tray down to 0.9 per cell then immediately charge them. They have not lost any runtime over the last 2 months and the voltage is actually slightly better.

just disharge them down to 5.4 volts (0.9v/c) on your charger, then tray them to equalize, something like the novak smart tray would be good. do not discharge below 0.9v/cell these cells will loose their punch if you do this!!!
the cells however are very good.
