I heard on the radio this morning that it snowed in Rancho San Diego yesterday. It was cold as ass at my house yesterday. But not that cold.

Yeah, it's the first time in a long time... Still cold outside right now and everything has dried up.

Your cells should get around 135F to 145F. Do not cool the cells while they are charging. You oculd potentially overcharge your packs.

Set peak dectect to have the cells reach 135-150. Do not charge or discharge with a fan. Charging it will cool the cells and not realize a peak and will over chage the cells. Cooling via fan will cool the outside of the cell and the chemcials inside are still hot. Discharge them after your race and have them sit 1-1/2 to 2 hours before recharging.

Hope this helps.

John
