Hi all,

I have some good info for you.

Check out the attached pic. This is info from the first cycle on a 4 cell set of GP3700's.

The numbers on the labels are 365s per cell and average voltages of 1.184v on each cell. This is a good pack. Also the numbers from the cycle I did bear all this out. I actually got the exact run time which was on the label (at the time that had never happened before with any cells I had cycled).

Check out the pic, good numbers, good cells. Please read my next post as the point of all this is coming.

Chris.

This pic is from a cycle of the same set of cells after approx 10 cycles.

As you can see they have only lost 3 seconds of run time. This is something which was unheard of with 3300's. It was common to lose over 20 seconds of run time in the first 10 cycles and up to 35 seconds.

You will also notice that average voltage has increased in all three measuring methods by 0.05V. Two of the cells getting into the mid 1.19x range.

As I think you will agree, these are great cells and they are standing up to use extremely well.

one other note I want to make here - during these cycles I used peak detection method for charging. When I charge my cells for racing I like to use temperature detection set to 110F or 115F (depending on ambient temperature) When I do temp detect I generally get 4700+ into the cells rather than the 4400Mah which is in the pic.

Any questions please let me know, however I know I'll get asked this one so I will answer now - no I do not dead short.

Chris.

John, does fusion offer a battery building service? I bought some IB3800's and was wondering if I can ship them to you and have them built and how much it would cost for 6 packs.

Ramyuras,

I do a Multi Phasic charge with 3 steps. First step is 5A to 1000Mah using linear charging. 2nd stage is 7A to 2500Mah using Hard pulse set to 30%. The last stage is 5A linear again. I like to use a temperature detect as I mentioned. I also like to equalise my cells for 5-8hours using a mild equalising tray right before I charge.

Chris.

Chris,
currently we do not offer assembly for third party cells. If you like our assembly proces then please try our cells. I think you will be surprised by the performance.

John, I was going to order batteries from you except you don't have the IB 3800's and I really wanted to use these cells. Thank you for replying though, I appreciate it.

Chris, sorry for all the Q but do you equalise the cells to 0 or .09 thank you.
