Default 3000 NiMH

I heard orion say that you should discharge NiMH and treat them like a 2400. Whats your opinion on this?

So far we have found this to be true with the SanyoRC3000HV's. They need a higher peak detect than other NiMH and can be charged at higher rates.

We have found that that they don't need to be stored with a charge.

Visit the RC3000HV thread in the Electric onroad section there is allot of useful information on the HV's.

Charge at 5 or 6 with a .03 peak detect. After the run dump at 30 to 5.4 for a 6 cell or 3.6 for a 4 cell. Let the pack rest a couple of hours and it's then ready to reuse.

Keep them stored without a charge. If you don't plan on running them for a long period of time you should cycle them every 3 weeks or so. This will help keep some runtime.

Default NiMh, equalizing versus store partial charged?

I assume equalizing will be good for NiMh. But when to do it?

I'm planning on getting some of the new Sanyo 3000 hi-volt. They recommend storing at 25-30% charged. So how to do. Charge, drive, partial charge, then store. The night before next use, then discharge/equalize?

Visit our website for maintenance of the HV's or read the RC3000HV thread I posted a reply to your question there.

Do the Sanyo HV's have an HV stamped on the negative side or is it HR? Mine say HR but I thought they should say HV.

I think this is Sanyo's code for the NiMH. I have seen HR stamped on other NiMH cells.
