Keep it below 140......... you should be able to do that with a 6amp charge and a .02-.03 delta peak.

hi i have a ko propo charger that i use on my gp3300 sp2.now i dont have a temp sensing or delta peak cut off thats variable.i only race once a week at club level.so would it be worth changing to a very expensive system and is it beneficial. i always equalize my cells and charge at 6 -7 amps while cooling them down on a fan. i never seem to lack punch or duration.pleasae advise.thanks plummers

I like my packs to peak at 135 degrees

Plummers-Get yourself a temp gun and monitor the cells. You can get decent infrared guns for around thirty bucks.

I do not let the temp. go above 120 'F & that is the default temp for ice. I use 4 step charging & the battery temp. never goes above 110 'F. You want the battery warm but not hot.
