Is it ok to run your heat and then just put the pack away without discharging it? I have 3800's and did this today. I plan on traying them on wednesday and cycling.

I do that sort of thing all the time. You probably don't want to wait too long. I run 4200's and if I'm not going racing for a couple weeks or so I put a full charge on them and cycle them the day before I go racing.

do you see that the 4200 sticks seem to discharge while they set over a period of time?................. :confused:
ANY NIMH CELL WILL RAPIDLY " SELF DISCHARGE " !! THE LOWER THE IR THE WORSE IT IS.
THESE WERE NEVER DESIGNED TO BE IN ANYTHING FOR STANDBY POWER.

KEEP THEM CHARGED WHEN NOT IN USE !
