I am also astounded by the level of support offered by John. He spent an hour on the phone with me the other day and left me allot more educated on battery technology. Hats off to a great company with GREAT!! Tech support. Just try getting that from the bigger guys.

big thanks go out to john malin for the awesome rip-sticks he sent me for the carpet nats. awesome cells with both great runtime and killer voltage, in combination with Much-More's Cell master charger and Much-More's new cell warming tray were the winning combination to keep me on top.

again, thank you john and fusion for all your support.

Hi All,

it's good to be part of the fusion crowd, I'm expecting my first set of cells in the next few days and I'm looking forward to putting these puppies through thier paces. I'm a self confessed battery geek and I have a good depth of knowledge of how these things work and a good idea of how to look after them so they can look after me. I

have known John for over a year now and this guy is extremely smart and knowledgeable about cells, and I have spoken with a lot of the matcher guys, John is the best. Whatever I can do to help others (and myself) in whatever way I can is one of my goals.

I'm mainly a 12th scale racer, been running stock and mod for a few years, right now I'm running stock and enjoying it a lot as my car is handling like a dream even though it looks a little shoddy.

I have a question for you all... How many Mah are you putting into your cells? And how are you doing it?

Generally speaking, the more you put in.... the more you get out.

On an average day I will get 4200Mah into my cells. Other than my first charge (which is always crazy high) I have got 4384Mah into my cells. These are pretty good run time gp3300 cells. I know I'm way up there but if we share some knowledge i think we can all improve which can only be good for us and good for fusion.

Chris.

Guys please welcome Chris into the family. He has lots to give in battery knowledge. Please ask away and try to answer some of his questions as well. He will be instrumental in helping with some of the Research projects that I have on my plate for the near future.


Thanks,

John

Sorry about that. Starting out we were discharging down to 5.4 volts, storing the batteries untill we needed them again. I did not tray the batteries before charging them again. The MAH started to drop off after a while. I noticed that some people were discharging down to 0.0 volts and then deadshorting their packs. I decided to give one of our packs a try at that. This pack was only charging up to around 2800mah and the voltage was fairly low. When I took it down to 0volts and then recharged it the mah went up to 4180 and the voltage went out the roof. Since then I have done all our packs that way and have had very good results. Still dont know if this is the best way to handle nimh packs or not but I can tell you the first battery I done was one of the Off Road specialty packs Fusion sells and it is kick a$$ to this day. We did'nt have any problem at all running it in a heat race. I have so many, now it is a awsome practice pack.
So there you go!! give me some feedback!!! Thanks John

Default 0.0v

Do you lose voltage over time taking your cells down to 0.0v instead of 0.9v
