Hallo Pierre,

The theoretical headspeed is based on the assumtion that the batterytension is 1.05 V per cell. A freshly charged batterypack will give you a little more (do the test yourself and measure the packs when it is fresly charged)

If you regard the discharge graph where the voltage of a cell is plotted against the discharge then you'll see that the tension of a nicad cell will drop in function of the discharge and the discharge

I think that the 1.05 V is a value that gives an idea because most of us presume that the voltage per cell will drop to about 1.05 V per cell under heavy load.

I myself i'm also curious why this value of 1.05 V is used in most of the calculations.
