Rick,

Second thoughts on this; don't know why, my brain probably wasn't engaged in first reply! These are obviously cell readings, but they look very high and too close for reality. The "Cell" range is only specified for 0 - 30 milliohms, although the meter will read up to nearly 40milliohms. If you do not plug the search wire into the balance connector (so that it is monitoring one cell), then the meter will read it as over-range, in which case it will read the highest it can, which could be any value between 35 and 40 milliohms.
This suggests that the search wire was not connected or the balance leads on the pack are open circuit. Does the meter read 'Cell' Voltage before you press the 'Operate' button??
What size pack is it in mAh??

Wayne
