Default Re: Integy Octane 2

Are you sure about that? When I bought mine ages ago, I was told it had a 0.9V cutoff. The Booster2 goes all the way down to 0. Anyway, I've been discharging my NiMHs until the lights go out and then storing them empty. There are a lot of different ways of doing things I suppose. I've always been told that storing NiMHs with a charge will preserve runtime but not punch. Anyway, SMC recommends them to be cared for in this manner. But I also heard they charge their batts sometimes up to 8 or 10 amps to get the punch back. Who knows. Find what works for you and stick with it I suppose.
yes i'm pretty sure it is.....used to deadshort my nicds using octane 2 after it's 0v reading on a multimeter for the whole pack.....if i tray my nimh i wont even let the bulbs go off before i take it off....bulbs off is about .5-.7v....by the way the older octane (not octane 3)has .9v cutoff with lower discharge rate(octane 2 approx. 20a)...correct me if i'm wrong
