I've been playing around with my c9000 for awhile, using Break-In,Discharge & Charge modes. I currently have some underutilized 'Impact 2900' batteries [doubtful of that label], that had quite low values ~1700-1900 after a Break-in. I've read the instruction manual and apparently should be performing 3 R&A's, followed by another Break-in. That's fine; I'm currently performing 1st run of R&A. Charge rate: ~0.5C = 1400, Disharge rate: ~0.2C = 600.
R&A will take about 12 hrs [including rest]x3 = 36 hrs total, based on my charge/discharge rates. This time estimate doesn't include the manual Discharge after each R&A.
Would I be better off just performing 3 Cycles, to not worry about manually Discharging after each R&A, let alone babysitting to perform the 2nd and 3rd R&A?
I would use Charge at the end of the final Cycle.
I suppose I'm not very clear on the differences between R&A versus Cycle aside from Cycle ending in a discharged state and being able to perform multiple runs.
Would running 3 Cycles have about the same effect as 3 R&A's?
