cycling rx tx batteries with triton charger
hi rr people
i have a Triton charger
witch can perform a charge to discharge for tx or rx nicad batteries

the problem is the cut off is set at 0.8v per cell(only in the charge to discharge window)
a nicad should be discharge at 1.1 v
this value can not be change its a factory default value

would i hurt my nicad if i discharge them below 1.1v
thanks

A single nicad cell can be flattened completely with no ill effect .
The only danger with batteries (cells in series) is the posibility of one (or more) cell being completely flattened while other cells still have charge in them . In this case the flat cells have current flowing through them the "wrong" way while the remaining cells discharge . However , with the voltage cut-off point set to 0.8V per cell , it is unlikely that any individual cell will be completely flattened before the cut-off point for the pack is reached , so all should be fine .
At the end of the day , it gets dark .
