NiCd / NiMh charger circuit schematics help? Answered

Hello,

I found this schematics on the Instructables. So my question is, will this charger stop charging when the battery reaches voltage of 1.4V? It won't overcharge my NiCd battery?

Best regards.

Depends on the position of the pot marked R. With no load connected, adjust it to read the cell voltage you want. It won't work below 1.2V, but you should be OK at 1.4

Thank you a lot, but I need to charge individual cells, with current of about 400mA.
