my understanding is that the pro's nimh2 mode is their new one for the latest cells and attempts to detect the best mv peak while the pack charges. Everything I've read says it's still not very good and that if you use the nicad mode with the pro you can set your threshold exactly where you want it for the given pack your charging (i.e. - .03 ultra's/smh, .05 hv's). I don't think the NICAD mode charges any differently if you've got your own threshold set - don't quote me on that though. I know it works well though.

CoolDad, the NiMH mode on the Millenium pro is meant more for receiver pack batteries and such. Transmitter batteries, etc etc.

My advice is to use the NiCD setting and adjust peak threshhold to suit the battery.

Vic- always always always charge them the way you intend to charge them for the rest of their life. For stock 6-7 amps and for mod 5 amps. I would use 8mv/cell (that's 8mv for a Millenium and .05 on a turbo charger) for Sanyo and GP 3000s and 3300s. For Panasonic SMHs and UMHs use 6mv (or .04 on turbo charger).

Okay; you mention receiver packs. I claim some ignorance here. When are receiver packs used? I have been wondering.

Greg- nitro cars use reciever packs to power the servos and reciever.

Vic- ours smoothed out and quit false peaking on the second or third charge. The power was good from there on.

I know all new packs pick up and feel better after a couple runs, but what was you guys first impressions of the gp 3300's. I put my first run on some new packs yesterday. My laps with my old batts were 2-3 tenths faster. I hope the 3300's pick up.
