Confused about NIMH discharge...
I have 2 x Traxxas Powercell 3000mah 8.4v 7cell NIMH packs.
I wanted to discharge them. So i searched on some information about discharging Traxxas 7cell 8.4v NIMH.
Discharge rate: As wot charger does. I did it at a rate of 0.50amps
Cut off Voltage: 6.3v that is 0.9v per cell (7 cell batt)
So it started disharging and the volts got lower and lower...:)
Pic of charger in discharging process...
When it hit 6.3v it stopped discharging... so far all good...:)
OK then i got a multimeter to measure the voltage... set the multimeter to (DC Voltage)
THis is what i got.:confused:
My main concern is that should it be showing 6.3v on the multimeter or not?
If so what went wrong?
