Charging NI ZN rx pack

Postby Bruce8 » Fri Jan 04, 2013 12:33 pm

Hi I just bought a Turnigy Accucell 6 from hobbyking having been told I could charge my Ni Zn pack with this. All I have to do is use the NiCd setting because the charge curves are supposedly the same. Is the current value that you can change the cut off value on the charger? Has anyone had any experience with such a charger and a battery? Any thoughts? Would love to hear all! Thanks

It appears that these batteries will not charge properly with ni-cd charge parameters.

It seems to say that the charge curve is the same as the ni cd hmm will see what I can do. Thanks for the advice though! Any other views?

They might have the same charge curve but the cells end voltage is higher nominal 1.6 volts per cell as opposed to nominal 1.2 volts a cell so the charger will stop charging prematurely.

Can I alter the cut off from 1.2 to 1.6 with the turnigy acucell 6 charger?

It appears not you can only change the delta peak for ni-cd and ni-mh, not the charge end voltage on the accucell 6.
