low voltage

Recommended Posts

having to borrow a rifle from a mate for a game tomorrow and both his batteries are reading low volatge on the balance charger when plugged in. I am guessing this means they are too flat or is therer a way to get some charge into them? 7.4v deans lipos. Any help greatly appreciated.

If he's got a programmable charger then put on balance charge (set the MAH cut off to the MAH rating on the battery) & charge at 0.1 amps (basicly trickle charge) until the display reads 3.60v in each cell & then change to normal charge rate

 

If it's way below 3v then its fooked completely

is balance board connected correctly ??

 

other than that watch this vid - ALL OF IT !!!

(OK first 1:30 mins the bloke is dicking about a bit but watch the rest for sure)

 

and CAREFULLY start charging to get it above the low voltage mark

then it should attempt to work ok

 

note your charger seems to be similar to B6 type

but this is best I can offer - be careful and charge in a safe place

on worktop in garage or deffo not on floor/bed etc....

 

hope this works - be careful

I know there is a way to force charge lipo's for when some chargers/lipo's only take 90% charge

and people top up to near the max 4.2v per cell

BUT that is for people who know what they are doing

What your lipo's have is a charge below its limit and in vid it will force some juice into them

Then it should no longer get error and hopefully charge up normally on lipo program

 

Other than than it is gonna be a case of getting dean-s.tamiya so you can use yours

(or fit deans to yours but only if you can solder and cut+solder ONE WIRE AT A TIME)
