The above prior link goes into specific details on setting up the proper paramaters for various given battery examples (capacity/type) using a specific charger, but contains helpful charge rate info for given pack sizes that should be helpful using other chargers as well. It's designed to walk a complete newbie through battery charging technology.

I've put together a bunch of links that I feel would be useful to this thread's content. My contribution is a more broader knowledge of various battery types and chargers, but in terms of charging Minelab packs I stick to the GT for the stock pack or lipos when explaining charging those via aftermarket chargers in terms of details. Kered has experience with particulars of the Sovereign XS, Etrac, and Excalibur packs when using aftermarket chargers to charge them, so I linked to his posts on that content as well for further details. You'll also find various other info in these links, such as Excalibur pod rebuilding, where to buy aftermarket higher capacity packs for it and the various Sovereign models, and so on...

This super long thread also has other info spread through it on various Sovereign (XS, GT, etc), Etrac, and Excal charging and pack info. This thread is beyond in depth but I guarantee you if you read it all not only will your head hurt, but you
