Never had the need to know this before as I’ve always had a JR wall charger and simply recharged my Tx and Rx before each flight. But now I bought a triton….
Info about my batteries
After reading my triton manual a few times I have a few questions about charging and discharging…. some of these questions may sound stupid but It’s all new to me at the moment so I have to ask
My Rx battery pack is rated at 1700mAh and states 4.8V, It looks to be AA size batteries.
My Tx (JR3810 with standard battery) is rated at 600mAh and is 9.6V noty sure what batteries are in there I guess there AA (9.6/8=1.2)
The triton manual says to set the discharge voltage for Rx packs at 1.1volts * the number of cells so that would be 4*1.1=4.4v. It also states the average use placed on these batteries in operation is about 0.2-0.3A, so to do a slow discharge or to test the batteries capacity I guess you would set the discharge rate at about 0.2-0.3A.
For quick discharge it states to do it at 2C (2 times the rated capacity) so for my Rx pack I thought that would be about 3.4A (1700*2=3400mAh), however the Triton only goes to 3A so I figure I’ve misunderstood this.
Any suggestions for charging rates?? I assume it would somewhere between 1 and 2a again I’m not sure.
Any info or suggestion for charge and discharge rates for the two batteries listed above would be great, if possible in terms of fast and slow charge setting for both packs and fast and slow discharge setting for both packs.
