It's nice to charge the Acepow 5000mah @ 40A in less than 9 minutes. That equals out to 8C charge rate. 4584mah went back in. Man do I love this charger.

Now there you go hijacking threads again. We just went from chargers to airbrushes. Now, having said that... you airbrush blowing up is the funniest damn thing I heard all week!!!! I just talked to your dad a while ago and he told me all about it, so you can't deny anything. The Anvil strikes again. I've heard of airbrushes breaking, but to have one explode is AWESOME!!!! Somehow I picture a Wil-E-Coyote moment from Looney Tunes. So what color did you get covered in? I think your new screen name should be "paint boy"
lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol!

So I've been using the charger at 40a with a 40 blade fuse. The 8awg still got hot and the fuse was melting. So the fuse was no good. Ebay to the rescue and got a fuseblock for 7 bucks shipped. This time I use dual 40A glass fuses. Wires don't get hot no mo' at 40A.

I'm charging the 2s 5000mah Acepow packs at 40A. The 4s pack at 35A. The A123 1p packs at 20A and the 2p packs at 40A. It's so nice not having to wait 10 minutes for a battery pack to charge. But my 8 year old son still complains after 5 minutes of waiting for his packs to finish.

I cycle the lipo's and A123's with 40A regenerative discharge.

I found that cycling the packs once or twice has the same effect as warming them up before usage. Resistance of the cells go down, especially the A123's. To achieve this, I don't do the cooldown between cycles.

Wait so you do what ?
Charge them at 40A and then Discharge them at 40A, to get resistance down ?
Or you discharge them at anything and keep on blasting them at 40A.

Wonder if that works with 20A O.o

It's the discharging that wakes the bastards up. The A123 is the high charge rate that warms them up.
