You will have to get a tray that cuts off at .9 or is adjustable. I am not aware of a way to get back the runtime. That's a side effect of dead shorting,everything is a trade off. Try the Novak tray since it has adjustable cutoff.

Default Question

I got a Pro-Match pack with a used Carpet Knife I bought and I have no idea what it is. It has a sticker on it that says "custom matched for team driver Dave Vera" on it. How can I tell if it's still good?

Thanks,
jag

jag- the best I can tell you is to cycle them and use em. We haven't used custom labels in about 2 years just to give you an idea about the age of them.

Anyone have a good way of storing my batteries (3300,6cell). I race stock. Should i dead short them? Or should i discharge them and don't tray them...becuase my tray has a zero-cut-off so i don't know when to stop traying them if it reaches to .9v. (i own a duratrax ice)

They need to be stored with some charge in them - NOT discharged. The longer you expect them to be stored, the more charge you should leave in them.

To equalize them, You would discharge the pack after it has been in storage and equalize it then charge it up and run it. If a pack is gonna be left stored for more a couple of weeks it is recommended to put a little charge in it. The longer it is gonna sit un-used the more charge you should put in it.
