My guess is if you simply use the presets of the PL8 as is, and perform a few cycles with PL8 only, you won't get the over-voltage error messages any more.

Yes, if charging 3 packs in parallel and you want 2.2A per pack, the current should be set to 6.6A total.

Thanks Tim, I'll try doing the a few cycles on the battery and go from there.

Would you recommend discharge down to 3.30v per cell during cycling?
