Question: Chging and Dschging on Sanyo 2600's w/Triton Charger

I have been using a Triton Charger for several months and it has worked flawlessly on NiCd, NiMH, and Poly batteries. I am trying to cycle a Sanyo 2600 8 cell pack (the largest pack that I have used on the charger) and I have a few questions.

I first c/10ed the pack and now am discharging. The question is I programed the charger to discharge @ 2.9 amp with 8.0 volts cut off. The pack is discharging but the screen shows that the max I am dischaging is 1.9 amp. Why is it not increasing to the 2.9 amp that I have programed?

Thanks in advance

John

I just got a Triton, and I noticed the same behaviour. I am guessing that it calculates the max current it can run at the measured voltage, and limits the dissipation to a certain number of watts to prevent overheating the charger.

Thanks for your reply Bob

I think you may be right. The read out did increase to 2.1 Amp during the discharge and the charger was rather warm.

After t he discharge I charged @ 4.0 Amp and it took 2598 no problem.

I will cycle one more time before using
