Ok I have read the battery posts lately. But still want to make sure I do things right before I try to charge My new Radio Shack Gp3300's.
1. The first charge I am going to do at 1 or 2 amps.
2. The first couple of will only last 5mins or less but should get better with more charge/discharge.
3.Do not run past point of slow down.?
4.Leave my batteries charged if not used for a while.
My one question is about trickle charging: yes or no.
The big thing is going to be tryng to figure out #3. Right now I am used to the 1500 and 1600 nicads. They run good but slow down the whole time the are run.
But you all are saying that the GP's will run good for most of the run the just slow down?
I mainly run my truck on the weekends. So should I leave my batteries fully charged during the week.
Sorry for asking the same question you all have answered all the time.Just dont want to ruin my $50 in christmas presents.
