highwayman: as of now I will say no. I really haven't had them long enough to have a really good answer on it but that's my initial thought. I discharge what's left at 30 amps and them equalize them. I will start using the Tekin equalizing tray this week which Jeff loves BTW. I have heard they like deadshorting but when they are already 1.20+ how much higher can they go?LOL I charge mine on a Much More charger @ 7,.2,and 6 and temp cutoff at 47-48. The peak detect is usually 5 or 6. (that's running 19t btw) Hope that helps a little. If I come up with more I will post.

promatchrcr :

thanks for the info... i have tried IB3800's from 2 other matchers... but my promatch stocks of IB's and GP's are coming soon, so im probably going to try both.

would you recommend charging and "caring" for them the same way?

Promatchrcr, i was reading on the IB3800 post by SMC/Danny the the most you should set the peak detection is .2, because these IB don't like the heat 5-6 seem a little high, and fully charge packs should be around 135deg, if you go any higher the packs will vent, it happen to me so be careful.

promatchrcr uses a much more cell master which uses a very different system when it comes to peak detect... a 5 or 6 peak detect on a cell master is acutally .005 to .006 negative delta peak as compared to other chargers.

a .02 peak detect for example on a GFX is actually a 20 setting for a cell master.
