Dead Short --

Dead shorting is electrically shorting out a battery pack after it has been fully discharged. Basically, this is done by connecting the negative and positive leads together. This eliminates any residual voltage left in the pack, allowing the pack to retain the maximum possible charge. Occasionally dead shorting a pack may increase voltage, but reduces run time. Do not attempt to dead short a pack unless you know what you are doing and have the proper tools (some high end dischargers have dead short capability). If something goes wrong, you can easily destroy the cells (best case scenario), or cause a cell to vent (a.k.a. explode).
