I would think that it would be OK, but I haven't tried it yet. Anyone else out there using the Triton with duralites??

I would guess a Super Nova FMA 250 would be ok also.

I guess I'll be a guinny pig next charge.

Only use duralite charger

I asked the guy at Duralite about this, and he said to use ONLY the Duralite charger.

You might say "well he would wouldn't he", but these batteries can be very dangerous if they are overcharged.

I have the 3600mAH set, and I after 9-10 flights the voltage is still about 7.3V with 1 Amp load (the no fly voltage is 6.3V), this is with 3x9151 and a 9253.
Once you use these you will never want to use nicads again.

The duralite batteries are supposed to have a circuit that prevents overcharging, so that shouldn't be an issue. Also, the stop fly voltage is 6.9 volts with a 1 amp load according to duralite.

6.9 volts

Yeah, that was a misprint on my part, it used to be 6.9V


I've just checked website, and the no fly voltage has been changed to 7.1V.

David,

Anything special to know about using the Triton, or is it just plug and charge? Also, what voltage are you getting after charging the TX pack (I assume it is a 3 cell pack), and what is the quit flying voltage for that one?

Thanks,

DK

I use a Triton to charge my 4000 mah Duralite. I asked Jack at Duralite Batteries and he said if the programing is right there will be no problem.

--------So that's what this switch is for!!!

That’s like the old hair club commercials
This guy said on TV spot
I own the company why would I lie?
