Default ORION Advantage Charger - user settings?

I've been using the ORION Advantage "carbon edition" charger to charge my 3200 lipos for a while now, but I've never used it to charge my NiMh's.

I decided to try it for my old 3800's, but I had the MAH setting on 4200.

The battery charged until it hit exactly 4200 mahs and shut off, and ready something like "Charged to Mah Capacity" or something similar. I Scrolled through and re-hit the charge button..the battery charged about another 2-3 minutes and this time when it shut off it said something like "Charged to PEAK"

What I want to know is how do I set these chargers to fully charge to PEAK w/o stopping at a certain Mah for the NiMh batteries/

Default Orion Charger

If you don't get your question answered here, there's an Orion section in the oval product support section at hobbytalk.com

just set the charge capacity higher than 4200 like 4600 or so. i use 5000 in my charge settings when charging my 4200. just make sure ur using the correct delta peak detection value.
