$.02

The peak voltage # of 8.9 is telling you your pack is close to new and has pretty good internal resistance. As the packs get older, the peak voltage will go up. As internal resistance goes up, so...

I have that charger as my back up, and you can set the peak detect like any other. 8 mv per cell or 50 mv for the pack (6 cell). The problem with them is they false peak a lot. Watch...

Thumbs up Taping Batteries

The easy way for me in 1/10 scale pan car road course is to cut a piece of tape as long as from the back of the front wheel to the front of the back wheel. Put the tape in with the two ends hanging...
