What would be the best charger to overnight charge a 1700mah 4.8 volt pack.I have a Hobbico MKII to quick charge. I've been told the first charge on a new pack should be at slow C/10 rate.Any help would be greatly appreciated. Ray

the triton is an excellent charger and is fully adjustable down to the C/10 that you are looking for I love mine not real hard to learn either comes with a great set of charts to help you set it up I do not know anything bout the mark II but can say that my triton is the exclusive charger of my raptor and futaba radio

you can use the triton but look in the instructions
and see if you can set the peak detect for
(I assume) NiCds. You would like to have it
high so the charger doesnt false peak during
the charge but it's not a big deal if it does anyway, you just restart the cycle.

set the triton to .2A rate (as I dont think you can
actually get .17A) and let it go for about 10+ hours.

PEAK DELAY AT START: During the early moments of fast charge a battery’s voltage can temporarily be unstable which can cause some peak chargers to prematurely terminate fast charge. Delaying the time at which Triton’s peak detection circuitry is activated at the beginning of fast charge can help to avoid this situation.Select a peak delay time, which ranges from 0 to 60 minutes. Typically, a delay of no longer than 3 to 5 minutes is necessary. A delay time of 0 minutes effectively disables this function.
“NiCd charge” and “NiMH charge:” Triton utilizes the “zero deltaV” peak detection method to charge NiCd and NiMH batteries with linear current. This method can result in a battery safely reaching 95 to 98% full charge, after which time Triton will automatically switch to a gentle trickle charge current. Trickle charge will help the battery safely reach its 100% full charge potential.
Is this what you are talking about? http://www.electrifly.com/manuals/g...manual-v1_1.pdf

I don't notice

I never noticed my Triton go into trickle charge for nicads. It does it for Nimhs, but for some reason it doesn't seem to do it for nicads.
