It appears that there is one bad cell in my Zippy 6S 2650 pack. It was way down on power and my charger now only sees 5S... One cell is .3 volts below the others. The other Zippy pack is fine.

I will be putting the battery in an ammo case and sticking in the driveway in the event it blows!
Jon, I have the very same problem with a brand new Turnigy 3000 6s pack. Charged it once, voltage was fine, Hovered using that pack. No problems. The next day - charger won't charge it as one cell reads 1 volt!

Too costly to send back to Hobby King. What can I do with this pack (besides drowning it in salt water)?
