howdy yall

question to the dead-shorting experts... say I discharge my GP3300 with my Rayspeed discharger in Nicad Mode, and it brings each cell down to 01V ... will it make a big ZAP when I dead short and hurt the cell, or is the voltage down enough for the deadshorting to be harmless? I need some extra punch on my Promatch GP3300, and couldn't care less about runtime...

Cells are from march I think (the first month they used that cool new soldering system)

Thanks much!

Later

Paul

I'm not sure if you will find any dead-shorting experts here. Not for GP3300's anyways. I don't recommend.

Hi Paul,

What are you charger parameters set at? The reason I ask is, there may be better ways to get more punch.

What do you mean by custom? Can you be a little more in depth as to what you are looking for.

dead shorting nimh 3300 batteries is really not that bad you will gain punch but lose run time.

goop: no offense but we do not recommend it even though Hurricane may. We would appreciate it if you didn't come on the thread knowing what you just posted will cause a "stir". Thanks

I say, let them dead short their packs!!! Always fun to watch a $80.00 pack vent...(if not done properly!!)

You are also significantly shortening the life of the pack, if you already haven't changed the chemical characteristics within each individual cell.

Joking aside, these guys are right on the mark. The performance gain you will see, if any at all, will be negligable but the damage to the pack will soon be evident. Follow the charge and discharge parameters set out on the Pro-Match website and your cells will last a long time and perform to boot!!

hurricane batteries does not promote the use of dead shorting. i was just stating what will happen. it has been a proven fact that nothing short of losing run time will occure. if done properly.
