charging a 6 cell pack on a Cellpro charger
« on: 18, March 2017, 06:34:43 PM »
Hi can anyone help me? I am trying to charge a 6 cell pack on a Cellpro 10s charger using the node connector plugged into the 6s connector with the plug blocker in place,when i start the charge things seem to be ok but when i check the cell voltages on the screen it only shows 5 cells being charged and not displaying the 6th.I have two of these chargers and both do the same thing,so i am not sure if the whole pack is being charged,am i doing something wrong?any help would be most welcome.
