700 mA 5 cell nicad pack and triton charger

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have a 5 cell 700 mA nicad pack and when I charge it at .2 amps with the Triton it just keeps taking the charge forever. When I checked it said it had put 2200 mha in it !!!!!!!!!! If I use the Triton to discharge it, it will only take out 680 mA then ends.

The charger works fine on all my other packs. Has anyone every seen anything like this before ?

Batteries will only peak charge at higher currents. (I mean high relative to the capacity of the cell) When the charge current is too low, the peak curve will be more difficult to detect.

Try bumping the current to at least 4-500ma and see what happens.

Shortening the leads may also help. If you are running a long extension cable to charge the battery try a short one.

Triton charger


Try lowering the peak sensitivity setting when you charge at a lower rate.

Tech1 is right. Delta-peak charge termination doesn't work if the current/capacity ratio is too low.
