just went out to check on my lipo at its beeping overcell charge.3s at 12.73volts. hope it didn't hurt the batt. I thought my charger would stop when its done, guess not.
Ya thats odd... My charger stops at 4.2.v ... what kind of charger is it??? Also i would discharge that extra current asap and rebalance it.. .. Over voltage will damage the cells..
How do you charge your lipos? fast charge/balance/etc? You should always balance charge your batteries..

i don't have a cell checker. it should stop at 12.6volts. I balance it every time. I just discharged it and it worked fine. no puffing, it stayed cool.
did the same thing again today, I was watching it slow down to .08amps then beep beep beep beep and it says error over voltage cell. wierd
ya.. 4.20 V per cell max.. 12.60 on a 3s... Keep an eye on the charging tho...... if your charger is continually overcharging the cell(s) it can damage the battery...
it was at 12.5 volts and then it went off. somethings not working right
one of the cells is exceeding the voltage limit, This is the bad cell. the other two are lower,
Eg. c1 = 4.1V. c2 = 4.1V. c3 = 4.3V= 12.5V but cell 3 has overcharged.
Have you noticed that the charging has been taking longer than what it used to take, and the length of time getting longer.
Google search trumps Wiki. Refer to user guide.
I got the battery two days ago and no the charging isn't longer. it is longer than other peoples on here though. should I return the battery?
Just curious, what charger?
hyperion eos 0403i dc.
Edit...I seen this has been moved to traxxas lipo area.
God is good.
i think I should probably return it. its a defect! its a dynamite speedpack. 3200mah 30c. I might go with spc though.
defenently go with spc!
check out what mv rateing you have per cell ....it can be adjusted below or over 4.2v per cell and battery voltage has the same adjustments........also it could be the length of wires
summit /mustang /stampede-2s spc lipo
I got the charger for free in a trade so its all I got. as long as it works im fine. I don't have a cell checker so I cant test that. the spcs are on sale now so I should get one yes!
Since they are not Traxxas lipos or charger(s) you'll need to contact the manufacturer for support of their products.
