I have a GT power RC charger (cheap and nasty I imagine, maybe part of the issue), i've only used it a few time now and ive read the manual several times but cant figure it out. I am unsure if Im doing it right or if I am messing it up..
I charged my 7cell, 3000Mah 8.4v traxxas batteries yesterday and I charged them at either 2or3 amps and they charged ok (took around 1hr got warm but not anything too much)... I got home and ran them, I then recharged at home and it would not allow me to charge them above 1.7amps (took around 2hrs), today I baught 2 differant ones (same 8.4 7c 3000mah trx batts) into work to charge and they will only charge at 1.2 amps (it stopped after25mins and said it was full). If I try to charge them at any higher amps it gives me an error message saying the input power drops below limit?
Why does the amps it will allow me to charge at change?
Q.2, I also have a pair of LiPo's, Team orion 3c 11.1v 45C 4500Mah batteries which I am changing to run parallel, (series is too much), and would like to charge any advice welcome... cheers..
any simple explanations would be much appreciated....
