I have recently received both packs and a charger I bought from you. I have read the manual for the charger, which states "to determine proper charge current in Ampere, consult the manual for the battery, or your dealer", and since I have found no manual for any batteries, the latter is what I'm doing in this post.
I got this charger: http://www.maxamps.com/Eos5i-AC-DC.htm
this balancer: http://www.maxamps.com/LBA10.htm
This pack: http://maxamps.com/proddetail.php?pr...rt-Pack&cat=13
and this pack: http://www.maxamps.com/Lipo-6000-74-Pack.htm
Now, I dont fully understand what settings to use on the charger, or rather how to find out. I need some sort of equation.
- Does this charger detect when the battery is full, or do I have to calculate charge time and disconnect? Does this vary with battery type?
- What are the optimal charge and discharge settings for regular Nimh/nicd's?
- What would be the upper limit of (dis)charge current (C-number) for the packs mentioned above (for speedy operation).
Thanks in advance!
