    Use Lipo Balance. Never use Lipo charge.

    Besides that your external power supply probably is not strong enough to feed it.

    I have owned the same charger for almost a year. It's not too bad. Dont forget the charger wont get to 5A even when you use the right power supply. It is 50W. Since amps x volts = watts, you would need 63W (12.6 x 5) to charge a 3S battery with 5A.

    That means it would be around 4.5A.

    In fact a little less than 4A (4 x 12.6 = 50.4). But most of the time it does a bit more than 50W. If I remember well, mine did around 4.2A.
