Default team orion 1600 mah marathon rx pack

Hello All,
I have a fresh team marathon 1600mAh receiver pack (OR12227)
and I would like to know the charge and discharge spec for it, like delta peak, cut off voltage etc. Only the slow and fast current charging is given on the battery.

Thanks!

I cycled mine before I strapped it into my GT. I used a Pulsar 2 charger. I charged it at .5 of an amp. I discharge it at .7 of an amp (it takes awhile to charge then discharge). For peak detection, I used 25mv

Hope that helps..

PS: It took a full charge of 1625 mah

charge it at no more than 1 amp and discharge it at no more than 4 amps, as for delta peak, I can't remember what I have mine setup at, I just went by the manufacturers setting (LRP).

I have a ofna 1600 pack for my v1rrr. I imagine you charge it the same way as the orion 1600 correct? Now I have a pulsar sport charger, what amp should I charge at? And what delta peak or what ever it is Like 25mv?

Use my charge/discharge settings from above, but just set your delta peak low until it takes a full charge...


It should take around 1600 mah...
