Charging Current
Discharge Current
Peak Sensor
Discharge Volt
Trickle Current

Thanks In Advance

comish.. I stoped using a ICE along time ago due to its wild voltages when charging lipo;s and other batterys.. and the charger just recharging a battery over and over

Charge current. do a aa cycle ch/dis.. about 5.. at 1 amp charge n 5 amp discharge to cycle battery
Then charge battery .. 1.6 amps
dis 5 amps
PV 17 mv not high just the ICEs faults require this peak
dis .8 volts a cell..
always run a trickle on nimh or nicad.... .25 amps..
OHM's law use it..
