Thread: LSD and C9000 - First charge

    Default LSD and C9000 - First charge

    Hi Guys

    Just got myself a C9000 charger with some powerex imedions, and also got some Kodak precharged for the bargain price of just over $11aud for 4

    I have used the C9000 to try and rejuvinate some old batteries, and thats worked fine, but i was wondering, if the LSD batteries are already charged when sold, what first charge do you reckon would be best?

    do i do a refresh and analyse (as it charges to capacity then discharges)? or a break in? which charges regardless and then cycles..

    or do i just do a charge?

    Thanks in advance from a long time unregisted browser

    Most folks seem to recommend to discharge first, then run a break-in, for the LSD's. That's what I've done with mine.
