Re: MMC equalizing resistors (fwd)

Hi Grayson,
                     The R values should be in the megohm range. I am 
using 4.7Mohm glazed metal film high-V resistors across the caps in 
my MMCs. It is also a good idea if you have a C meter handy to 
match the caps in each string as closely as possible.
