I've been charging my Fusion Batteries on 6.0 Amps, but If I charge them at 5.0 amps like the battery says, would I get more out of the battery?

BTW- great batteries, awesome power

get more what?? 6 amps should be a bit more punch with less runtime. 5 amps should be a bit mor erun time with less punch. I doubt that you will feel much difference though.

I started out charging my batteries at 5 amp then switched to 6 amp and didnt really notice much of a difference like John said. Im currently charging at 6 amp just to make sure the punch is there and not the run time because with 3700's in a 5 min stock race you should have plenty of run time.

Oh baby, I just got five Fusion packs (two for my friend), all 1.185+, and I can't wait to run these bad boys tomorrow! Wish me many shredded tires from too much power!

They are wicked batteries! The punch seemed to never die out with these batteries, and it seemed impossible to discharge these in the car because they last so long. A+

Awesome weekend this weekend. I qualed 2nd in stock truck and got 3rd overall. everyone got tangles cept the leader on the first corner and leader just checked out and had a awesome lead. I was last to get marshalled but worked my way back up to 3rd was a awesome run. Fusion batteries were TQ and winner of the stock truck main.
Gas truck qualed around 7th and got up to 4th but flamed out got it going lost a lap got back up to around 4-5 with 10 min left of the 30 min A and a ball stud backed out. Truck was working great and the Reciever pack went loooong time on a charge. I believe a Fusion Rx pack also won the gas truck A main but I am not 100% sure on that. Overall a good run for Fusion.

Hello,

I have been running Fusion 3300s for awhile now. They have worked flwleesly all season at 6 amps. I wanted to pose a question on what John M. and everyone else thought about charging them at 7 amps? I did it this weekend for the first time and the batteries felt a little 'punchier' but came off charge pretty hot. I run stock 27t and run time isn't an issue, both packs will charge up to 4000mah at 6 amps after being discharged and equalized.

Daniel-

Vulso,

There is probably a few people who will disagree with me on this one but the extra punch you are seeing is probably because of the heat not the extra amps. Some time ago I did a study of the difference between charging at 4 amps and 6 amps, There was no difference, all the numbers almost exactly the same. The cells generate thier electricity by a chemical reaction, with a lot of chemical reactions heat is a catalyst, this will effectively lower the IR and helps the cell's voltage recover faster after heavy current demands (when you hit the throttle coming out of a corner). However heat is the worst thing for the cells' lifecycle as it breaks down the chemicals faster. This is proving to be true for me here In CA, it's hot right now and my cells are not what they were 3 months ago. I was putting 4300 into my gp3300's and 4700 into my gp3700's. Right now I'm down 200-300 Mah from those figures.

Chris
