I have been using this unit with very good results. It is a great product and it does 4 cells!

I have a Dyna Pulse on the way... Can you either post your procedure here or email me a copy at:

[email protected]

Thanks!

This summer I'm running Mod and Stock Sedan and my batteries really need some help! Then I need to recondition my 4-cell oval and 12th scale packs for the winter. Racing around here is hard on batteries, because all summer it's 6-cell racing and then all winter it's 4-cell racing -- batteries do NOT like that, and simple charge/discharge cycles doesn't really do the job... I'm really hoping the Dyna Pulse helps both during the season (discharge after racing), and with "off season" conditioning...

For those already using one -- how long to discharge after a 5 minute Sedan race... I typically have about 2 minutes left (using a string of light bulbs for around a 20 amp rate)...

Give yourself about 45 minutes to an hour after a 5 minute race to discharge the pack on the DynaPulse.

I hate to argue, but...

My Trinity Dyna Pulse clearly discharges a 6-cell pack down to 5.1v before it cuts off the process -- that is .85v per cell...

Hey guys!

Well now I ahve two of them and I havn't been been able to tell how the battries work. One of my 3300 hurricane packs was up to 2100 mah and one of my surge packs were up to 2700 Mah but they were both equal in resistance
11.7, How many cycles to I have to run in order for it to see the Mah and voltage numbers go up and the resistance go down and can I do the same pack twice? in one week?

After 3-4 full cycles on my packs (with ~24hrs betwen cycles) I find the voltage going up and the IR going down (good), and the Mah and runtime going down (not so good).

Anyone else see this trend?

Default MaH going down

Yes, I have seen the same thing on my 4 cell 12th scale packs.

I have only done multiple cycles (at least 24 hours in between) on some of my older weaker packs, but did notice a slight drop in run time but improvement in voltage and resistance.

Not what I expected, but not necessarily a bad thing given the 3700/3800 packs, assuming you are running stock or 19 turn.

think of it this way...this device just brings some more life back to your old pack.
even when I discharge my batt. down to .9v after each run.
before each heat or main, i tray my batt. for like 10min in the 30amp integy discharger.
that will put my batt into .85v or lower sometimes....
will that affect the batt's life.. yes... but i get more punch
out of those batt.
with the newer 3800 and 3700... run time will not be a problem
in our 5 min heats... even with modify... unless the motor de-solder your
connection.. then that is different story...

sorry, had a long ass 8 hours meeting today... so..
i hope it makes sense...

Mr. Cuff... please kindly put TEAM Ming on your new body for vegas..

Do you discharge your cells as soon as you take them out of the car on the Dyna Pulse? Or should I say what exactly is your method of taking care of your cells using the Dyna Pulse?

Thanks,

there are many way to do this as everyone has their own method..

I have 4 packs, 3 qual packs, and 1 race pack.
I mainly use the dyna on my race pack, right after the race is over.
so it can discharge the batt while i'm driving my butt home(1 hours drive)

I use the 30a dishcarger to discharge those 3 qual. packs.
I do tray them down to 0v on the gp3300.

i cycle them with the dyna pulse with all my batt.
when i go practicing, as i don't have time worry when the next heat is up.
I run 7 packs in those practice day.... those 4 racing packs will get dyna hook up after each run.

i do have 3 packs that are cheap arse none matched.
so i can beat the living out of them... if i have spare time
i hook them up during my work day with the dyna pulse.

~ming

btw: I think I should let the battery guru explain the proper way to do this.
as my lazy chinky arse gets lazy and i auto skip the proper step to
take care of my batt..

I mistakenly placed two of my battery packs in my Novak Not so Smart Tray upside down. A snap, crackle, pop later I'm burning myself as I yank them off. Anyway I know very little about good battery numbers and was wondering if anyone could offer some insight. Here are the numbers I got...

Label Specs:
Fusion Power 3300
AV 1.181 to 1.182
Sec 0422

Trinity Dyna Pulse Specs after being equalized by the Smart Tray and then charged on my Turbo 35 at 6amps:
Volts 6.96
Resist 22.0
Capacity 3603
Time 463.45

Is that good or bad? What kind of numbers should I be striving for?
