Homer,this is from the website:
How do I charge the GP 3300 cells?
I recommend charging these cells at 5-6 amps with a .03 peak detect (CEI turbo thirty/thirty five). A lower amp rate will give more run time and a higher charge rate will give more voltage. When using any charger follow the manufacturers recommended settings for charging. If no instructions are available start with the lowest possible peak detection setting (if available) and charge the pack. Check the temperature of the pack immediately after the charger shuts off. If the temperature falls within our recommended settings then leave the peak detection setting there. If it is too low the increase the setting and try again. Continue to use this method until satisfactory results are obtained. Use a charger that was specifically designed to charge NI-MH cells. To verify that the pack is fully charged you should check the temperature. We recommend a temperature reading between 125-130 degrees F when the charger first shuts off. The temperature will continue to rise after the charger has shut off so the temperature reading should be taken immediately after the charger shuts off. NIMH cells do not peak like ni-cads do. When a ni-cad battery reaches a full charge the voltage in the pack starts to drop quite rapidly. With ni-mh cells the voltage does not drop as rapidly when the pack reaches full charge. On the other hand the temperature does rise quite rapidly as the pack reaches full charge. The cells can get extremely hot when using some peak detection chargers as the peak detection circuit is not sensitive enough. If the cells get too hot damage to them will occur.

There is alot of good info there along with what I posted above if you want to check it out:http://www.promatchracing.com/techsupport.htm

Hope this helps!

Is Pro Match using the new short button cells now? I would like to know before I order some new packs.

Thanks for the reply. They work fine, I was just curious if any difference between the short/regular tab cells would present a problem. I haven't done any research to check to see if they are different at all. No need in worring about exchanging them and thanks for the offer.

actually I have read from other matchers that the new GPs have more punch than similar voltage older GP cells. So these new ones should even be better!

Yeah the newer short cells IMO have more punch and perform better than the older "long can" cells. I have some with lower voltage than some of my older "long" cells and they are even better.

Hi Korgae,

Are the new shorter 3300 cells lighter in weight than the larger cells? How much?
