What was the charge rate? What is the battery capacity? Did it stop dead or start slowing down first?

 

What gun is it?

if you charge it up again does it happen again?

 

also, when you plug the battery in after how much charge has left the battery?

the monitor showed it only went down a little bit then just sat at same level even after firing (this is attached to lipo)
as the charger is a shite one apparently only has two lights red & green (the new one i'm still trying to find a plug that works with it) since it nevr came with one

how much money do you have to spend? what charger are you going to buy. Basically, I bought a turnigy accucel digital 6 without powersupply and used my laptop charger however my laptop charger is one that has all these different connectors. Will find it for you and edit it in :)

thats it, for my power supply all I needed was the standard connector that you could use to connect the other connectors on to. Its good because it doesn't get very hot and you can adjust the voltage.

OK, so if you have that charger the display tells you what the charge rate is before you start charging. It also stops automatically when it's finished. If you've not changed the default settings then chances are you'll be charging at 0.1A which is WAY too low. an 1100mAh LiPo should be able to be charged at 1100mA (1.1A) so I would suggest you check your charge settings. The cell voltage isn't always the best way to check if your battery is full or not.

OK, buy one of the supplies in that Ebay link then.

 

 

The Turnigy charger you mentioned will charge at a maximum of 800mA so it'll take at least a couple of hours to do your battery. Personally I wouldn't use anything that isn't a proper smart charger so you can see what's going on (I have the mains powered B6AC).

 

Did you wait for the green charging light to go out?
