Cellpro Powerlab 6 Burn Out
I think I may have killed my Cellpro Powerlab charger but I don't really understand how.
I was using the Lipo storage charge setting to set up two 10400 mAh packs which won't be used for a while. These are 22.2 volt 6S2P, 35C by Desire Power. I use them on a Droidworx octocopter. I should add that I am very new to this Lipo game and it can be a bit daunting.
I had already storage charged 4 packs with no problem. As I was doing the same with the last of my six packs the charger shut down and will not power up again. There was a very slight smell of burning near the fan. I am no electrical engineer but I took the charger casing off and I can't see any obvious damage. The fuse still appears to be intact.
I think I had all the setting correct but I was not certain about the discharge setting. I think it was on 2amps but I can't really remember. The four previous batteries all reached storage charge with no problems on whatever the settings were. The batteries connected when the fault happened were not hot or swollen.
Any suggestions would be appreciated, especially on what the setting should be for storage charging these batteries. I think I will have to buy a new charger and I don't want to burn another one out.
Thanks in advance for any help offered.

You have not filled out your user's profile so I have no idea what country you are in however FMA / Revolectrix is one of a very few componies which does in fact repaire their products. I suggest you contact them for a RA.

If it's under a year old then it's covered by warranty, contact the dealer you got it from. If it's over a year old then still contact the dealer because they should be able to advise how to get it repaired.
FWIW.. You cant discharge at too high current, the charger will automatically self limit to it's maximum amp or watt discharge rating.
