Hi Tom,
Thanks for a great series of test. One observstion I would make is that 1A is not exactly a slow charge for a 2.5A cell. Much slower than 10A but still what I consider a quick charge. To me a slow charge is C/10 for 16 hours or so but then you start the great deabtes about not detecting peak etc. A slow charge does not use a peak detection circuite. It is my understanding that C/3 (about 1A here) is the minimum for reliable peak detection with NiMH cells. My Tritons work great with 2200-2500 NiMH AAs at 0.5-0.7 A which is as fast I every charge my Transmitter pack and then only when cycling approximately every 3 months..

All of the cells which I charger in the 15 min. zapper have their positive ends painted Red. They are only used for charge and go non mission critical applications.

Thanks again.

Charles
