There are several threads on LiPoly Internal Resistances ,how to obtain them and how to evualate them.

iChargers do a fair job of calculating cell IR most of the time. If the IR of one cell is many times that of the others in a fairly new LiPolys then there is likely a leads / connector problem.

Like with the connection break errors most of the time it is the leads / connectors not the charger.

I got a quick reply from Junsi that solved the problem. I had a burned trace on the first pin of a few of the balance connectors. Corrected the problem and also had to do a calibration on cell 2 volt reading as it was reading .2 volts low. 3.8 instead of 4.0 which I was getting on my multimeters.

Not sure how it got so far out of calibration but it's working again is offline Find More Posts by
