Default How do you change the voltage that the 16x5v6 discharges to?

According to the manuel of my 16x5v6 it discharges to .8v/cell and Promatch reccomends discharging to .9v/cell is there any way I can change this setting on the charger? Is there a signifigant diffrence between discharging to 4.8v and discharging to 5.4v?

Thanks

I don't believe you can adjust it though i've read that if you discharge under the 7 cell parameters, it will cutoff at 5.4.

I dont know about your charger setup can be altered, but personally, I wouldnt worry about if it's 0,8 or 0,9 volt. The important thing is, that the discharge is shut off, when the packs starts to drop and dont go all the way to zero.

I've got a v5 and have been using a .8 cutoff for a few months without any problems at all.

I don't think you can. I've been using it for awhile also with GP3300 and no issues....

no u can't(repeat)

There is no difference between 0.8V cutoff and 0.9V cutoff...since by then the cells will be dumping already.there is not even 1 seconds difference.U can watch the voltage of the pack go down from 5.4 to 4.8 in like a blink.

That's true and once you take it off the discharger, the voltage jumps right back to 7.2 or around there.
