Dynam Li-Po 2-3 cell balance charger.. fixed
Hey everyone. just new to the threads today. I recently bought a used dynam cessna 310, my first electric flyer. I used to fly nitro planes with my Dad around ten yrs ago, but not since. My flying skills are still good.
With the cessna I got a 2200mah li-po battery and a dynam balance charger. Did a flight and pooched the battery as I didnt know any better... So then I went and bought another battery, was already charged and went flying again knowing better not to fry the battery. Brought it home, threw it on the charger and only had 2 outta 3 cells fully charge, came up around 10.1 volts.. charger was overheating as well.
So i went and did hours of research and reading about other peoples experiences and learned I'll need a new charger. But for now I took apart the balance charger.. found a few semi-bad aolder spots on the board and re-did them. Tried the charger again and wow now my battery is at 12.2 volts
So when your dynam balance charger craps out.. it can be fixed.. I'll update if this turns to be a temporary thing.
