7.2v or 7.4v for charging Li-Ion/Lipo with Triton?


I just received my Triton and noticed that it gives me two choices for charging 2s lithium packs: 7.2v or 7.4v.

For my Etec pack, everyone on here says 7.4v -- but how about my older lithiums (e.g. qualcomms for Tiger Moth). Should I just take the value right off the pack, or is there another trick to it

Thanks!

We've been charging our Qualcomms at the 7.4volt setting on my Triton since last fall with great results.

Thanks for the advice, Hugh. I'm using a 2s Qualcomm and the pack says 7.2v on the outside, but charging hasn't been up to par using the 7.2v setting on the charger. I'll try 7.4v and see how that works.

It will make a HUGE difference! The battery will finish at 8.4 volts rather than 8.2 volts with many more Mah added!
