Default ko propo ex 10 charger lead

Hi,

I recently purchased a generic lead to use for my Ko Propo EX 10 to charge the transmitter batteries (NiMH). When I use this lead on the EX 10, the charger says it is about 2.9 volts where it should be in the 9s to 10s of volts. Has anyone experienced this? Could this generic lead not work with the EX 10?

Thanks!!!

But that's the thing. The lead can not alter the voltage that much. It is just a wire.. Wire has VERY LITTLE resistance....

Oh yes it can . Did you try to hook up to your charger a different way ? Did you reverse the polarity on the connector ? JR/KO run opposite then everyone else .
