Many thanks for that informative posting on the cure for cell
flooding. I didn't understand what I read in the manual because
there was no background. Now an old veteran is showing signs of
life after 3 hours.

One thing, isn't a TED a bimetallic junction, with very low
resistance? I read 0.18 volts across the wires at 1 amp. But
I'm using 5 ohms and 5 volts, not one ohm. Was that a type O?

I usually find it safer to use a 5VDC supply thru a 1 ohm 10 watt
resistor to supply the current rather than a constant current supply at
such a small voltage. You do not want to burn out the TED!
