Balancing LiPo...

Postby NandaRockCrawla » Tue Mar 17, 2015 9:21 pm

Hi guys, just finished balancing the 7.4v 860mah 2S lipo, and it didnt seem to give the lipo a full charge?

Does this look right?

Only reads 566mah?

That's normal. You don't completely discharge a lipo or it damages the cells. If you want you can use it for 5 mins then charge and it will only charge what the 5 mins took out.

4.2v per cell indicates a fully charged lipo, in as new condition.

On the second screen shown, the numbers are thus:
8.39V - Final input voltage
51:13 - total time on charge
00566 - total number of milliamps (mA) input to the battery.
