Hi. I would like to know wich currrent is used for discharcing.
If i would like to set a different current than the one available, can i use different values of resistors?
for exemple: for charging current 25mA use 50ohm resistor, for charging current 35mA use 36ohm resistor
I would like to use a different range of charging current, than the one used in the kit.  Instead of the range 15-30-55-75-100-120-150-200-300-400-550-750mA, I would like to use the range 15-20-25-30-35-50-75-100-120-150-200-300mA.
 Thanks.

Batteries are discharged with 10 ohm resistor (see diagram on page 14 of manual).
You will have to recalculate R1.;R13 for different charge currents.

That means discharge current is about 125mA?
I recalculated R1-R12.
position R1 charging current 15mA = 82 resistor
R2 20mA= 63
R3 25mA= 50
R4 30mA= 42
R5 35mA= 36
R6 50mA= 25
R7 75mA= 18
R8 100mA= 12
R9 120mA= 10
R10 150mA= 8,2
R11 200mA= 6,8
R12 300mA= 4,7
Is it correct?

What happens if i set two voltages or currents simultaneously?
I accidentally set two voltages and currents simultaneously for a few seconds. After a few seconds charging I quickly turned off.
I have damaged something?

Measure charge current with a multimeter set to 'A dc'.
If still correct, nothing is damaged.

why on 7.2v discharging to 4.28v? 6cells 5.4v?
