Max Battery Voltage when charging

Post by Sixtys Guy » Sat Aug 05, 2017 4:35 am

I put the 2S lipo battery than came with the Remo Monster Truck on balance charge for it's first charge. All of my other batteries accept full charge until they reach 8.40 volts, then the charge amperage decreases whilst it balances. This battery though gets to 8.24 volts when the charge amperage begins to decrease. Is the battery no good?

Could be, or could just be a weak/cheap battery.

Once it lowered to 0.1 amps it did get to 8.40 volts after a couple of hours. I'll run it and balance charge it again to see what happens.
