My biggest problem is odd cells peak long before they charged Have to stop charging and start again.
The cut out seems to be very sensitive and takes 3/4 charges to fully charge a pack,by then they have thermaled instead of peaking.Do i have a problem
You can try changing the cutoff to a lower setting I use .3mv and increase the temp cutoff voltage.
People will say cutoff temp higher but if you lower the mv setting the cells wont heat up as much at the end of charge.
I have no trouble with capacity due to low mv setting my packs ALWAYS have great power and runtime.
You may find that the packs you are charging are suspect, if they have been equalised before charge and they show signs of the inbalance between cells that you say this could be the case.
Dont worry to much about inbalance as one of the features of this charger is to charge each cell on its own, as long as the power is there and runtime all is good.
Imagine if you were using an ordinary charger and your cels were this much missmatched, one or more over charging some under charging?
