The Xipp dc3000 is a maintenance zapper and NOT as strong as a factory zapper.

The maintenance zapper does one thing.

Lowers IR by reduces bubbles and crystal buildup around the metal plates inside the battery.
This is caused by HEAT/COOLING cycles as you use your cells.
The liquid around the cells plates heat expand, maybe vent (turn into a gas too hot) and then back into a liquid.
If the cell is cooled off to fast the gas can crystalize around the plates LOWERING IR by creating hair like shorts on the interior plates of the cell.

The big thing here is that you don't want to over do it.
Zap the cells with lower voltage.

The IB3800 and IB4200 love it! :thumbsup:

Do you zapp the batteries once they are discharged or when they are charged?

I always discharged the pack first. Cool min. 40 minutes.
Equalize and zap each cell.

Charge 5.5 or 6 amps. :)

Also, I only zap after 5-6 battery cycles or when IR increases. :cool:
