Default DX6 charger voltage

The DX6 uses a 8 pack nicd, which means it has a voltage of 9.6v, it even says so on the pack. But the charger that came with the DX6 has an output of 11.6v. Why is that? Isn't that over the voltage of the nicd pack? Unless the Tx reduces that voltage when it is being charged. The Tx also shows the voltage of the pack to be 11v or more when charged, how can a 9.6 pack be at 11V? Each NiCd is 1.2, x8 that's only 9.6v

If you do the voltage regulator mod (swap it out to a 3.3v switching regulator) the battery will last twice as long.

I found out NiCds get up to 11.6V (the pack) when fully charged. I plan to keep it stock for now. thanks for the link though, it's almst linked in every DX6 thread.
