    High voltage and low voltage readings

    So, I went to plug in my fully charged 2s lipo and it started to smoke so I unplugged it and I know I plug it correctly I always double check and when I put it back on the charger it reads over voltage, also my dad tried charging one of his 2s lipos and it read low voltage please help

    The lowest a 2S should reach is 6 volts... and that should be under very controlled conditions as in NOT in an RC.
    The highest a 2S LiPo should ever reach is 8.4 in any condition, controlled or not.

    If any LiPo has gotten out of this safe range, it is no longer safe to use.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    So what would cause one to smoke like it did?

    And, we fixed my dads it now charges and take a charge.

    There are too many variables that could have caused it to say.
