Default Battery/Novak smart tray question.....

all my batteries have been discharged using the dyna pulse discharger. when i put the pack on the novak smart tray, one of the cells will go off immediately while it takes the others a few minutes to balance. is this normal or is it a symptom of a dead cell????

It might be a bad cell but first try bending the tab up on the one that keeps going out and try moving the battery around a little bit and hopfully the light stays on.This problem happens to me so just mess around a bit and the light should stay on.

What are the results of your discharge? Does it hold 1.2+ volts per cell average during 30 amps discharge for the specified time? If so, why sweat it that one cell has less run time until it cuts into your performance. Or has it?
