NiMH help. Is this normal?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have a NiMH pack that was bought this April and used for about 3 months or so then sat unused until a few days ago. I have a Triton charger and I have just cycled the pack 3 times in a row. I set the charger to charge at 0.7 and discharge at 0.7. The pack is a 6 cell 900mah NiMH. It is actually a Parkzone Commander pack. I have just recently made the pack into a flat style from the factory brick style.

When I used my Triton to charge the pack the first thing I set it to do was a complete discharge then a charge and so on for 3 cycles. The cycle amounts are as follows:



Keep in mind this pack is only supposed to be a 900mah pack. Are these numbers correct for this size pack? Is this normal behaviour for a NiMH pack?

What is your cutoff voltage for discharging? I ask this because discharging NiMH cells deeply is very life-limiting and judging by your numbers, this is likely what you are doing.
