triton charger help

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I acquired a triton charger a while ago. I have read that you should not go less than 1.1 v per cell when discharging nicd batteries. After reading the instructions for the triton I have come to the conclusion that when you use the charge/ discharge function for cycling, the charger has a 0.9v per cell cut off voltage that it takes the pack down to before it ends its discharge cycle. For those of you that are familiar with this charger is there a way to change the 0.9v/cell cut off when using the cycling function on this charger. Should I use the charge/discharge function and not worry about it or should I manually discharge my battery packs

I have a Triton Charger. I haven't checked the manual lately but it seems to me I had a similar problem but I think it took the whole pack down to .9 volts.

I don't use that function any more.

You must pay close attention to the instructions and learn how to set up the charger for each type and size of cell.

Somewhat of a learning curve but ALWAYS check the batteries to see that they don't overheat unless you buy the optional thermal cutoff sensor. This is important for lipo batteries

Maybe we will get someone who knows more to help us.

In the meantime I think I may e-mail Great Planes to help clear this issue up.

Don't worry about going to .9V/Cell with NiCds - especially if you keep them reasonably balanced and discharge at a reaonable rate.
