I was charging my traxxas 11.1v 3s lipo with my Venom Lipo charger. I had it plugged in and it was doing a balance charge. I had both plugs in correctly. I then left and a few minuted later a alarm sounded and the charger said that there was a cell voltage error. I looked and saw that one of the cells read 0.00 volts, another read 7.49 volts and the last cell read 3.84 volts (correct). So i started it again (with sandbags a temp probe and a large pot) and it went back to 3.84 volts per cell. Then again in a few minuted the same cell volt error appeared. what happened?
Here is what my setup is.:
5a charge rate
3s 11.1 v lipo (traxxas)
Cell 1= 0.00 Cell 2= 7.49 Cell 3= 3.84
I am using a venom lipo charger, worked before ( not first use) Hooked to AC power at 11.12 v input from wall
