Hi guys

Does anybody know if there is any possibility to ''treat'' Li-Po? One of my batteries lost one cell, so it doesn't go higher than 14% sad. This is an Overlander 2200mAh 3S battery and I've done just few flights only. I have I-Max B6 AC charger.

Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks.

Don't think so, Just as a warning get it outside well away from anything.

2nd warning - If your trying to charge it unbalanced the charger will boost the other cells over their capacity as it is trying to get a single voltage across all 3 cells Extreme fire risk.

Sorry

Is your charger recognising all 3 cells? press select i think on the B6 to view individual cell voltage.

check the balance leads and connector, if you have a volt meter you can check manually whilst wiggling things around. I've had connectors go bad and require resoldering.

worth checking before you drop into salt water

Yes, charger recognising all 3 cells. Two cells having around 4.1-4.2V. Third one doesn't go more than 3.7V. Looks like this cell charging, but not higher than 14%. After discharge this cell shows 0%-0.4% maximum.

Sergiy, It might be worth a chat with Overlander. If the pack is fairly new they may be willing to replace it if it is faulty. I've been told they can be more helpful than some lipo suppliers.

Another good reason not to put them in your Tx.
