NiMh transmitter battery for JR radio
NiCd pack is not available for the JR10X radio, so I purchased a NiMh instead. I've done a google search on info but get alot of conflicting info on charging techniques ranging from 1/C to 1/10C.

I posed the question to Horizon Hobby, from whom I ordered the new pack, and have yet to receive an answer from their tech department.

Any guidance? I have an iCharger 3010B which has a NiCd program I can customize...but it has no specific guidance on charge rate.
Thanks

If you do a Google search for Triton charger manual you will find very good info on charging NiCd and NiMh batteries. It is toward the back of the manual.To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

Also if you want longer life from your NiMh batteries you should condition them.To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

best information I've seen yet. Thanks for the info cdrking! I don't know why more charger manufacturers don't provide similar charts.
I'm printing out the chart and laminating it...lots of good info on it.

I think the reason they don't is because most people are using LiPo's these days. It's becoming a lost art on how to properly care for NiCd and NiMh batteries.

Glad it was useful. In the future you may want to consider a transmitter pack that uses NiMh eneloop cells. They don't lose their charge after weeks of sitting.

Get the Sanyo Batteries
Do yourself a favor and listen to the previous poster's (cdrking) advise ans get the Sanyo eneloop battery pack. I have a JR 12X with the same battery cassette as you. Buy them from http://www.hangtimes.com/txpacks.html

You get the battery and have to do two small soldering points and you are done. I am coming up on two years and my pack is as good as it every was.

The tutorial on how to solder is at the bottom of the page.

Why use lighter fluid when gasoline works sooo much better! | http://www.newportnewsrc.org/
