Use the team wave after the run. All cells will be at 0.9v.

Before you recharge, slap the pack on the 030a for a couple of mins, then charge.

This is taking the advice from Danny (SMC)

When the day is over, tray all packs on the wave and store at 0.9v, if you are going to leave the cells for longer than 2 weeks, set the cut off a little higher, maybe 1.1v
I dont think you should tray them to .9v, just get a discharge out of them...so the whole pack is at 5.4v's. Then right before you charge, Tray and then charge.

Huh, that makes no sense at all

0.9v per cell IS 5.4v per pack

You are arguing with yourself

I bought one of these trays about three weeks ago, and so far, I think its better than my smart tray. It has several features that the smart tray does not, and its construction is top notch.


I just wish they would make one for the 1/18th scale batteries

Dang it looks like the discharger/equalizer tray side of R/C is trying to keep up with the battery manufacturers. My bank account is simply hurtin' to keep up

I read that the:

Novak Smart Tray cuts off at a certain voltage, and allows the voltage to creep up or something like that;

Tekin Battery Doctor cuts off at a certain voltage and keeps it there.

What about the Lightning?

The Lightning beats both, as you can:
1) Set at what voltage you want to cut off at,
and
2) Can also adjust how long you want to keep it there.
It's all explained on their site

Right, right... I got confused with the CURRENT and VOLTAGE (in my head, I know that some batteries don't like to be brought to zero volts, and when I saw the CURRENT graph go all the way down to zero, I got worried).

In other words, I just suffered a temporary brain malfunction!

Edit: I wonder if the new MuchMore discharger (the new one, not the normal tray... the CTX-D)... I wonder if it does the same. Otherwise, I'll stick to the Teamwave Lightning...
