Default Turbomatcher4 Question


I'm possibly about to purchase a Competition Electronics turbomatcher4 unit secondhand. I want to use it to match 3000 and 3300 cells.

Details of the unit available at http://www.competitionelectronics.com/tm4.htm

According to the manufacturers, the unit needs upgraded eproms to cycle NiMH cells.

I was just wondering why this is?? You can set the peak detect voltage (from .01v to .09v) on the turbomatcher4, so I thought you could set this to something sane for NiMH cells (.03-.05volts or thereabouts) it should work and not harm the cells?

I thought the reason you couldn't use NiCAD chargers for NiMH cells was only because of the different peak voltage levels?

Do I *really* need the upgraded eprom to match niMH cells or is this another way of CE getting money out of me?

Thanks for your help!!
