I have seen guys dump their cells to 5.4v then dead short right away. They get really hot and I don't think its good idea but if you tray your cells before shorting, the lights are out and the pack is at room temp then you are certainly safe to short.

I'm a hardcore deadshorter, and like adrian said, it is so important to make sure the pack has been on the tray for a while and until it cools off to room temperature.

I use a Turbo 35BL so I set a normal charged as described with a 60 sec delay and an auto repeak as described.

Hey Hyper1, I use a ten dollar voltmeter from radio shack thats worked great for years, so If your built in one from your turbo charger acts funny, Im not sure I would trust it.....and if you have a pack thats been shorted for a week as you mention, It could rebound very slowly (or not much at all) and be just fine, It dosn't nesesarily mean a cell is reversed....but you can easily tell when you charge it (also with a voltmeter )......personally,Im not sure that I'd risk deadshorting a pack configured as a stickpack.....bringing a stickpack to true zero volts runs a higher risk of reversing one or more of the cells since your not bringing each cell down independently.....if this is something really important to you with those packs, I'd just re-solder them to side by side configuration and trey the cells individually.....good luck

Did you used to make runtime with the battery your talking about? if so, was it with the same mod motor and gearing combo that you can't make runtime with now?......Im Just asking because there's obviously quite a few variables to what your asking.....In my experience, cycling a NIMH pack will usually only wake the pack up if it's bran new or has been sitting for a while.... you could always cycle the pack to see what it's exact numbers are (if your charger gives you that info) this way you can see if your battery is dropping off from it's lables or if the problem lies elsewhere (like your gearing or your speedcontrol drive frequency being too low)..........Joe
