    How low should i let the voltage drop to under load on a 8.4v pp3 170mah nickel hydride battery before removing it to protect from over discharge ?

    How do find the maximum discharge current i can take from a nickel hydride battery with 170mah capacity without it being a dead short and damaging the cells ?

    8.4V is 7 X 1.2V cells so I would go for 7V as the minimum safe voltage.
    There is some good information here, look at the NiMH application manual and the pp3 datasheet.
