I have a 5 cell 2500 mah nimh pack. I'm assuming at 5 cell, 1.2 volt per cell, that this is a 6 volt battery pack. I want to charge it on a Triton but can only assume what to set.

On the nimh max input option on the triton should I set this to the packs MAH of 2500? The charge rate is 2.0 by default I think so I am assuming this can be left as is.

If someone can give detailed settings that would be great.

It is considered a 6v pack yes. but, when charged, the pack will be over 7v. make sure your servos and gyro can take 6v unregulated. Or, put a regular inline to 5.3 or so.

i would set the charger at 3000mah first, and slow charge it the first few times. use automatic or charge at 270mah if you can. do this the first few times. charge, and discharge. then the pack will be good to go. ive read that this must be done to get the most out of nimh packs. charging at 2.5 amps after that 'should' be ok. depends on the type of cells whether they can take quick charges like that.

Thanks for info. I'm using a borrowed Triton charger so I'm not to familiar with and the only online documentation I can find does not cover the settings I am looking for.

I am trying to deteremine where I set the capacity of the pack so if anyone out there with a triton knows please let me know.
