I am charging at 4.5 amps with a peak cutoff of 30millivolts.
Sounds like you just have to cycle it a few times. NiCds take a bit to break in, and they keep getting better for a long time. There was a guy using NiCds in his Tx with a similar problem and every time he recharged em they lasted longer. I guess that's just it. Try putting the battery on a fan or cooler (maybe in the fridge
) while you're charging it. If the pack gets hot it peaks earlier. If it doesn't come close after a few more cycles though I'd take it back and ask for a replacement.
