Default INDI 19xv6 charging question

I am having trouble charging 5 cell 1100 Mah NiMH receiver packs.I have a wiring harness with banana plugs and a receiver charging jack.I use the alligator clips on the banana plugs to hook the receiver pack up to the charger.When I start charging I am getting a v too high error and the charging cycle ends.It usually happens in the first 5 minutes of beginning the charge.I have tried charging at lower amps like 2 amps and I have lowered my sensitivity from 5 to 3 without any solution.These packs charge perfectly on my Superbrain so it is not the packs.

Small receiver pack cells should only be charged at a max of around 1amp...

I am also assuming you have it set for 5 cells, NiMH and 1100mAH?

Yes, it is all setup correctly.I am wondering if the banana plugs are causing some type of problem.I charge these packs on my Superbrain 969 at 3 and 4 amps with 5 Mv cutoff without trouble.

Charging at 3-4 Amps won't do those little cells any good - it would be like charging 3300's at 9-12A!

So you may have damaged them already.

The v6 is a clever charger - much more so than the Superbrain.

That V Too high reading, as you know, shows the pack voltage is too high under charge - that shows a cell with a lot of internal resistance, or even damage.

What you could do to try and solve are a couple of things. First is to set the charger up as 6-cells to "fool" it into thinking the pack voltage is normal. Second is to discharge that pack at about 1A, this may reduce the inintial voltage under charge.

Or the clips are too chunky to fit on the rx pack connection, I would build up a better adaptor with an rx socket.
