Default RE: New 1100 mAh A123 available everywhere and no word here!


ORIGINAL: everydayflyer

Correct setting for A123 (LiFePO4 cells would be

LiFe
Vultage level: 3.3V/cell
Max.charge vultage: 3.6V/cell
it also has a program for LiFE which only charges to 3.3v though.

That is not max. charge to but base(nonimal) voltage just like 3.7 is base(nonimal) voltage for LiPoly.

Cells should charge to 3.6 each and be approx. 3.45 a few minutes after charge is completed.

It is best to charge at 1C,then 2C then 3C when new.

The charger specs would indicate it charges to the max voltage of 3.6 for life, just like it should charge to 4.2 volts for lipo:

LiPO
Vultage level: 3.7V/cell
Max.charge vultage: 4.2V/cell
Allowable fast charge current: 1C or less
Discharge vultage cut off level: 3.0V/cell or higher

LiFe
Vultage level: 3.3V/cell
Max.charge vultage: 3.6V/cell
Allowable fast charge current: 4C or less
Discharge vultage cut off level: 2.0V/cell or higher
