Don't give up on the OU stuff yet, you need to "condition"
the batteries. I know that sounds like BS but after maybe 20
or more cycles, the batteries will charge HIGHER and FASTER,
actually starts showing up immediately but it is like an exponential
curve for a while, slow to start but improvements will accelerate
after some time. PLUS, and this is even BIGGER, you can parallel
2 to 4 CHARGE BATTS and they will all charge, (conditioned is best)
so you get a higher charge rate for basically FREE.
Getting there will have you pretty much caught up to me, Maui!
I'm conditioning 7-8 sets of NiMH's now, the 8th batt is kinda funky,
I might need a new one or just run 7 batts... or run 2 drive
and 4 charge, that is likely the way I will go. JB gets OU like
ALL THE TIME with "conditioned batts" and these DO WORK
on normal loads all the time! Normal Discharge is fine
for this type of arrangement, just use your Radiant Charging
Conditioning takes time, and a regular Bedini rotary device
has to condition batteries to get the results too, in fact,
IMO the relay charger (in Solid State) is likely a better,
more efficient unit for doing this work. Still working on it tho!
