We need to start putting up our locations so we know if people are stupid or simply don't speak English as a first language...

I think your asking what the "cycling" mode does for our batteries. What it does is charge and discharge your batteries several times to "break" them in better. Thats the short explaination.

However you never get to equalize the battery that way, so it's usually best to 1. Charge, 2. Run, 3. Discharge, 4. Tray / Equalize and then 5. Store or Charge again.

Again...short answer but still good / decent advice!

Forget the stupid answers about the use of your language. I think it's perfect! Now for those who want to learn speak Dutch, repeat after me: ik ben dom om iemand te beoordelen op zijn taalgebruik ( answer will be here tomorrow )
Now here is my answer: in the early days of racing we were using temperaturechargers which resulted in very hot cells and you had to monitor yourself when they were full. Then the peakcharger came and the charger switche off to trickle when it was full. Tekin brought out the reflexcharger which was continousely switching between charging and discharging until it was full. This proces reconditoned the cells during charging which resulted in extended batterylife. When the temperature in a cell is too high the small plates willl be disformed or bent and the cell will be give less power and runtime. This was the answer to extend the life for the expensive packs we were using (remember the pushed cells by cellmatchers like Trinity?)

Hope this answer has helped you.
