number you batteries, then at home during the week, just figure out how long it takes to charge it, then when at the races, figure out how many races/time before you race and start then. i.e. if it takes 30 minutes to charge your battery and your in heat 4, that gives you 20 minutes of racing plus the time between heats, which should be about 30 minutes total, but beware, you could miss time this and not have a completely charged battery its better to take the battery off 10 minutes early then have it peak 10 minutes late
