The Octane 2 will dead short your packs (zero volts).

If your just discharging the batteries until the lights onthe Octane 2 go out, that could be the problem. If you want to deadshort, you really need to put a wire or solder across the pack. Leaving the pack just deep discharge doesn't seem to have the advantages of actually deadshorting.

Kinda like the Karate Kid "Karate do -yes ok. Karate do- no, ok. But Karate do- maybe *squick* squashed like grape!!"


That being said, I'm sure Kane's Haus of Voltage will get you right back on track.

I would say charge at 5 or 5.5...the higher the rate the more punch the pack will have up front for the first 20 seconds but it will fall off a little sooner then it would with a 5 amp charge.

And if you don't get the analogy that Rob posted it means if your going to Dead Shot ok do it all the way if your not going to Dead short don't....but don't do it half way.....that will lead to problems....and some one making an obscure reference to some 20 year old movie. ...man its hard to believe but that move is that old
