How to identify battery voltage?

Hi there, I'm a newbie in here! I've been searching for my question so far, but still now I can't find any helpful answers (sorry for my bad English, I'm from Vietnam!). So please can you show me how to identify my rechargeable Energizer battery's maximum voltage (in mV) and minimum voltage (in mV) in order to use with the Battery indicator in CHDK? Thank you so much for reading this question!  :)

If you go to the Battery menu (under the OSD Settings menu) you can select Show Battery Voltage [ * ].  That will let you monitor actual battery voltage and once you know the range, enter those values in the MAX voltage and MIN voltage fields in the Battery menu.

Thank you very much waterwingz! But it shows the value like this" 2.434". Can you explain what does this mean?  :D
***EDIT***
And do you know the standard Maximum voltage and minimum voltage of the Energizer rechargeable battery? Thanks for the info.!

It means the camera thinks the battery voltage is 2.434 volts.

Minimum voltage is zero :)

And the maximum doesn't really matter - just adjust the min & max field so that the display reads 100% with a new battery and 0% just before the camera shuts down on low voltage.
