Ive been to other R/C user groups besides this one and this forum
is my last hope. Got so many different answers on the subject at
different R/C groups. Been to "Reds" Battery Clinic web site for
A. My battery charger: MRC Super Brain 959 Deta Peak Charger, will
charge 3 to 8 cell NIcd and NImh batteries. I can adjust the charge
current rate from 0.5 to 4.5 amp and adjust the delta peak voltage
threshold from 5mV to 70mV ( what does. It has Plug 'n Play and will
detect and set the peak charge before charging.
B. I have a 6 cell Nimh 7.2 volt 750mAh pack that I made...its
new...and want to charge it
C. IF I am correct Nimh can false peak.
D. What would... YOU... battery experts out there select as a charge
rate in the amp setting and mV setting and time aswell to charge the
above menttioned pack.
E. Some of the answers I got on other R/C groups:
1. charge at 1.5 amps.....70mV 16 hours
2. charge at 0.5amps to 1amp at 5mV/cell....wich sounds like
( either 0.5 to 1 amp at 30mV ( 6 cell at 5mV = 30 mV)
3. charge at 0.5 and let the charger detect the peak...charge
then let the charger trikle untill it shuts off.
F. I here alot af flack about making your own pack ( I do) so what
is the real deal about it. I know it can be dangerous, it can ruin the
cells. But it can be done and alot of us do it. Ive done it
(destroyed my first pack) but made a second one.....came out fine....I
learned from my mistakes on the first.
Please help.....all answers and opinions, negative or positive
thanks for helping
P.S. Dr1Driver will probally tell me to switch to nitro.....lol :)
( by the way Driver, I do have a nitro seaplane......hehehehe )
