Caution to e-sky 3 cell lipo charger users!

I bought a e-sky honeybee cp2 due to the fact it was a blade cp with symmetrical baldes and lipos already in the package deal. after charging the battery a few times I decided to check the termination voltage on the charger.

12.85 volts after charge! This is not good and could result in damage.
May be just my charger is faulty but it looks like a cheap piece of junk anyway.
I threw mine in the bin and will use my triton on it from now on. If you are using one of these check to see what the voltage is during charging or after. Anyting over 12.6 volts on a 3s lipo is not good.
Stop using it if you see similar results.

Hopefully it is just a defective unit. With all of the CP2's they have sold that include that charger I would be surprised if they all behaved that way. We do not hear many similar stories so this is probably an isolated incident.
