This is a Pre-Assembled 6 cell, 4600mAh Nickel Metal Hydride Battery Pack.
NiMH Batteries Have A Different Chemistry Than NiCd Batteries So They
Require Different Charging Methods (See COMMENTS).
FEATURES: Pre-assembled NiMH Sub-C size cells for use with 1/10 scale R/C
vehicles, also great for electric airplanes
Venom Universal Four Plug System allows connectivity between today's
four most common battery plugs, Tamiya, Traxxas, Deans and EC3,
simply attach desired plug to Venom plug on battery's wire leads
Offers 50%+ longer run times verses 2000mAh packs
Great for endurance racing
Higher average voltage means more power verses NiCd packs
NiMH cells have no discharge memory so there is no need to deep
discharge them by shorting out the cells. This damages the cells.
No need to be recycled, NiMH cells are environmentally friendly
INCLUDES: One Assembled 6 cell, 4600mAh NiMH Battery Pack w/Tamiya, Traxxas,
Deans and EC3 Plugs
REQUIRES: Charger: Having Negative DeltaV or Zero DeltaV Peaking capabilities
Discharger: Having capabilities to properly discharge batteries
SPECS: Charge Rate: 1A for extended life, 2A for improved performance
10-20 millivolts (.01 to .02V)
Height: 0.96" (24.5mm)
Width: 1.8" (47.1mm)
Length: 5.4" (136.3mm)
Weight: 11.2oz (317g)
Maximum Cycles Per Day: Three, with a 1 to 2 hour rest period
Dead Shorting: Not Recommended
COMMENTS: Do Not dead short the cells after discharging or store them with a
resistor across the pack. They do not need this and it damages
the battery pack. Store cells with voltage in them.
Use a digital voltmeter if your charger does not have one, to monitor
the voltage. As soon as the voltage stops rising, the pack is
charged. Do not let voltage drop like you would with NiCd cells.
Charger MUST be able to adjust the negative peak charge rate.
Heat or overcharging will deteriorate or damage NiMH cells.
