Default Have I Ruined My Packs?

Hi People,

The subject says it all. A couple of weeks ago after I finished racing, the next day I discharged all my packs down to 0.9 using a Novak Smart Tray. After that, I put 4 or 5 minutes charge at 5 amps into each pack and put them away for three weeks.

At racing last night (after the three week break) I was surprised to find that I had no punch and one pack even dumped during a Stock (!) race.

This afternoon I decided to cycle some of the packs to see what was going on. So far I've done two packs, and they top out at around 2000 mahs when the charger delta peaks!!

Questions:

1. Have I stuffed my packs?
2. If so, where did I go wrong?
3. Is there any way I can resuscitate them?

Thanks

MIKE

oz,

cycle them thre of four times each, make sure you equalise them well between cycles and don't cycle each pack more than once a day.

If they come back then great, if not then it curtains.

I have heard of this happening a few times to some people. No real reason for it they just decide to give up. I have not had it happen to me yet but I will be watching for it.

Chris.

Thanks for the reply. All is revealed - all my packs after going down to .9v per cell on the Smart Tray, were giving false peaks on their next full charge. Wierd huh? I tried two different chargers (an ICE and a Pulsar COMP II) with the same results. False peaks. I cycled all my packs and for racing today they were fine.

Live and learn!

oz,

false peaking frequently happens when you equalize cells, even new cells. If you can use a lock out of 1000Mah or temperature charge you will not have the problem of the charger cutting off early.
