Help!
New CSRC li po will not fully charge...

I got a few of the Commonsense RC 1100mAh 15c 3s li pos during the clearance sale and they were sweet. Excellent, in fact, so I ordered a couple more. I just got a Deans soldered on each and went to top them off for flying tomorrow morning.

One balanced out as it should no problem.

The other has been on the CSRC balance charger for some time and cells 1 and 3 are topped off at 4.2v but cell 2 does not seem to be taking a charge at all and is sitting at just under 4v. The batt is showing 12.39v on my wattmeter.

I am still pretty green and I've never had issues like this sooooooo do I have a bad batt, a bad cell or maybe just a loose connection on the balance tap?

Pisses me off. I have had great experiences with CSRC (I have gotten over 15 batts plus another 15 or so for my brothers from CSRC with only this one issue.) so I am sure they will fix the problem but it is still a pain when a day of flying is ahead of you...

Thanks for any input!

Just drop Mike a note and explain what's going on - he'll take care of you.

Don't dispose of it!!! Give or send it to someone with the skills to reconfigure the pack.
