The best build is one you don't have to disassemble, isolate, and replace parasitic cells. How is this accomplished you say?I'd like to build a setup with many small 3s packs, so it's easier to disassemble, isolate and replace parasitic cells when necessary.
Any suggestions ?
As far as your original question probably need to do a manual settings on the charger/discharger/analyzers as they are really designed for battery packs. Also the LiPo setting may not be ideal. Not sure if those units have a LiIo setting. I only have iChargers X6 and X8.What settings should I use to do a discharge test with the B6.
I have the B6 , B6AC , and the Hitec X1
Discharge to 3.0
Just FYI, a 3s lithium-ion configuration has a tad lower voltage than nominal 12V systems, so...it pulls approx 25 amps @ 12 VDC consuming approx 300 watts at full throttle (bursts)
The manufacture states "Lithium Ion batteries maintain higher voltages for longer periods of time than lead acid. Therefore, running a Minn Kota trolling motor at speeds higher than 85% for a prolonged period could cause permanent damage to the motor.... "
At higher discharge rates, capacity and IR matching becomes kinda important. You don't really want low capacity cells with high IR competing with high capacity low IR cells or vice versa. Preferably stick to ≈400mAh and ≈15mΩ difference and that IMHO is actually stretching it for a high demand application.When building a pack is it OK to mix capacities. I have cells ranging from 1800 to 2400 ish.
