Hi, it's normal for the eLogger to get warm under those circumstances. If the eLogger gets too warm, the voltage regulator will shut off, so no problems should be caused by it unless you are seeing a shutoff. Note that if you are using accessories with the eLogger, you should use a battery backup harness as described in the manual.

Hi See,

With the backup harness installed, that should not be possible. Are you sure the harness is installed correctly? If it is installed correctly, the LED should be blinking on the eLogger even when no main pack is connected to the eLogger.

Hi,

i send the logger to the factory today...
the backup harness is installed correctly and the unit suffers from a second lipo unit across this harness.. blinking even when the main lipo is not connected to the motor... i think it's broken...
