It's like this. Delta peak is detected when the charger stops seeing an INCREASE in the packs or cells voltage and starts seeing a DECREASE. This decrease or drop at the end of a charge is measured in Mv or Millivolts.
GP cells are recommended for a setting of 5Mv per cell peak detect. Per 6-cell pack that would be a per pack Mv drop of 30Mv. For a 4 cell pack the Mv drop would be 20Mv.
Some chargers go per cell and some others go per pack. You have to find out how your charger "reads" the drop to set a correct setting.
Also some chargers not only go by Mv drop but by pack temp cutoff. However that's another story.
(Any experts please correct me if I'm wrong)
