Default Indy 16 X 5

I have one and usually charge at 5.5 amps.

I change the peak acording to the ambient temp and how I am charging the batteries.

If I discharged the pack after the last time I used them, I use only 4 or 5 Mv per cell or 24 to 30 for the whole pack. If they are partially charged, I use 6 Mv per cell or 36. The batteries come off the charger quite warm especially by the battery bars.

If it is cold (ambient) I use 7 Mv per cell or 42 for the pack. This really gets them warm, almost too hot to hang on to which should be in the 140 area.

Use the 20 amp discharge feature when ever you are done racing to keep the packs in good shape.

Am I to understand that these batteries have a low peak [email protected] 9-9.3? Just want to know as much as I can, because this area is mostly Pro-Match, SMC land and I'm getting a little tired of that So I guess I'm looking for the best way to make these cells kick some ***!!!!!!!! Thanks, Chris
Chris -
I have a reedy quasar pro which is basically the same charger (my main charger is a CE GFX). I charge at 6amps for stock and 5 amps for mod @ 30-50mV/pack. This gives a good charge. Make sure you discharge down to 5.4v for 6 cell or 3.6v for 4 cell pack.

You should see your charge hover in the 8.5 v- 8.7 v range for a long period of time. Peaking voltage ususally is around 8.9-9.15 if the cells are great condition.

Run the cells hot as soon as they peak, this will provide the best punch and performance from the cells.

horniez - Randman is right - Never charge your cells with a fan on them. This will cool the cells while you're trying to charge them. It will cause an over charge into the cells as your charger will not detect the peak and that's not good. Discharge and let them air cool for 1-1/2 - 2 hours to let the cells rest before your next charge.

Ask if you have any other questions!

John

David Root: if you have the v6 model, try the boost feature...
It does a 20A discharge for a short period than a re-peak.

WOW

Maybe I'm wrong to post this? But I didn't seem to have same feelings about new batteries you all have. My new 1.179s didn't seem any better than my promatch 1.148s..

Hi

Plz tell us how you charged the packs?
Was it the first run with them?
What motor did you run?

Plz let us know so we can figure out what happened.

Hi,

I'm so sorry you pack didn't work. I hope the charging was done correctly. Please follow the charging method on our website at
www.fukuyamaracing.com and if that still didn't work, it may just be a bad cells somewhere so you can send it back to us and we'll rematch them and get it taken care of. NO QUESTIONS ASKED AND NO STRINGS ATTACHED! we stride to make sure not just only the pack but each and every single cell will meet it's standard and perform optimum under load. You can contact us at: [email protected] . Again, I apologize for any inconvienence it may have cause.

Awaiting your email. Thank you.

Dan

I charge at 7 amps. Voltage cut off .025 with temperate at 125F. It was the first 3 runs. 4 charges total. First was a cycle. I'm hoping they get better as I use them. As for motor? New Quad 19 spec. By the time I was in the A main I figured out how to tune it for touring car.
