Default Integy 16x5v6 discharge voltage threshold?

Is the voltage at which a discharge ends selectable on the 16x5v6? I can't find it in the manual anywhere... except that one graph shows 0.8v as a low-voltage point.

Most other companies are recommending more like 0.9v/cell cutoffs... any big deal?

No, the cutoff isn't adjustable and is set at 0.8v/cell
Shouldn't be a big deal though, plenty of people use it

Some of Integy's stand-alone dischargers have adjustable cutoff but you have to open the case (which voids the warrantee) and fiddle around inside to change it. Not sure that the 16x5v6 would have that though, since it's a rebadged Eagle model

If you want to change the cut off voltage for the PACK, just tell the charger it has 7 cells. This will give you a pack voltage of 5.6 volts. I leave mine at 6 cells, and let it cut off at 4.8. I dont' think it hurts a thing.

Don't forget if you do tell it 7 cells to drop your threshold voltage by 1 per cell so it peaks at the same for the whole pack.
