Is it Turnigy or Me, please help.

I just bought latest Turnigy Accucell 6 charger and a Zop Power Lipo 11.1V 20C 1000 mAh battery. When I test it with an ordinary batter tester, it gives correct reading of each cell, 3.83,3.83, 3.85, and when I connect it to Turnigy charger, it gives weired reading, have a look at the picture.

The battery has JST connector. I have made an adopter of JST to XT60, through which I connect the battery to the charger.

Am I doing something wrong or the charger is bad or it needs to be caliberated.

Can you post a picture of how you're connecting the battery and charger?

Close up of the balance connector hookup at the charger and between battery and balance connector if an adaptor cable is used.

Hi, thanks. The first photo was when I connected the battery to the charger for the first time. Now I have connected it 2nd time, now there is a difference. Previously the 2nd row was showing 00 all the way. Now this time it is different See the 2nd photo. Now see the 3rd photo, which is exactly the same the first time I connected the charger. There is 10 to 15 min of difference in taking these photos

Hi, in continuation of my previous letter, when I want to check battery resistance, it says "No battery found".

Is the balance plug in properly? It looks like it's half out?

I just noticed in your initial post that your charge set-up is for (2) cells, it should be (3). Not sure if that's causing the issue?

We want to see the connector plugged into the charger. Turn charger so that the connector side is pointing at camera.
Thanks

That image still shows the charger set for a 2S battery, you have a 3S battery. Try correcting the settings and see what happens.

What function are you using when getting those readings? Does the Accucell 6 have a monitor function, or are you getting those readings while set up for a balance charge?
