Default Charging transmitter packs - cutoff?

Hi guys - I need help.

What kind of cutoff would you use for a transmitter pack? I'm using an airtronic M8. No idea where to start!

I'll charge it at 1A, guess about 5Mv cutoff?

Any ideas?

On my LRP - I was charging at .5 amp with the lowest cut-off possible...On my T35, .5 again with the lowest cut-off

Haven't tried charging any with either my ICE or Tekin

I charged my Orion 2300 AA's at 1,5 A and 35mV, same cutoff as my NiMh packs. Temp were never above 40 C.

I charged my transmitter pack (I don't know what size it is) at 2.5 amps and 5Mv cut off and it was only warm (about 30C).

My turbo gfx was pre programed at .9 amp, and a .05 peak detect. It has been working great for 1400 all the way to 2500 8 and 9 cell packs!
