jamescam .. what you could do is store them in a cabinet that is dark and away from direct sunlight or a open window ... remember to store them with some charge in them if stored for long periods of time between use... you shouldnt have a problem ...

Easy question here...

I just purchased some 3800's and the last thing I want to do is fry them. What is a good starting point for threshold settings for a Novak Millenium pro and a Turbo 35? I've heard 2mV and .02.

Thanks in advance for your help.

i would try to make the charger as sensitive as I could and then work your way up to the temperature that you desire at the end of the charge. I would look for about 120 f.

If you have a pack matched at 1.80 with a 5 amp charge VS a pack matched at 1.80 with a 6 amp charge would the pack at the 5 amp charge have more voltage than the one charged at 6 if you charged the one that was matched at 5 amps, at a 6 amp charge rate??? i would think it would.

John Malin - I guess I will just assume that you received my two PMs and one email.

Hey John. You mentioned that step charging was the best way to get more power and run time out of your batteries. I just bought a Turbo 35 GFX and cant figure out how to program that three step process into it. Do you or anyone else on this thread know how to do it?

Thats because the Turbo 35 doesnt do step charging, it was made a while ago and step charging hadn't caught on. But dont worry, your brand new charger is still one of the best (and biggest ) but I'm almost positive it can't step charge. For your Fusions just discharge them to 5.4v at 30 amps after you run them and leave them stored like that. Then put them on a deadshort tray 30 min before charging. Charge them at 6amps with a 3mv cutoff per cell. I felt I had better punch with my GP's when I just did a linear charge rather than step charging, but people will argue for pages about that...
