No arguement that I violated instructions in my occurance at post #9. I admit that. I quickly set the current to 4 A and walked away. It jumped. I know what you are supposed to do.

The following is not the same pack. It is a Tanic 5S2P 4300. I selected it because of ease of checking balance. One parallel pair is 0.01 volts higher than the other 4 which are equal. The connectors are one set of properly prepared power poles. Pack had not been charged for several weeks. Charged it at 4.2 A - held 5C through phase 3.

Rested for about an hour. Charged at 4.2 A. See below.

Darn it - You do not have to have bad connectors, unbalanced cells, or high resistance leads. Yes, I know you should set the current at zero and slowly advance it. I did not in this case, and that is exactly what Fred did in the original first post of the thread that started this whole thing.

Hummm - can't seem to get the photos posted.
