Thanks again.
They hold up ok but its very close to using the whole battery capacity its fine for 5.5 and up , you can get away with it with the 3.5 but it depends how aggressive you drive

can't help you with the error message, maybe you don't have the right battery selected, 2s, 3s etc.
Thanks for that - I have since been told the banana plug on the lhs is for an input. The error message tends to indicate that my lead is faulty cause when I use another lead it charges the battery fine.

OK first day out on the track with the 5000. Just a practice day, and the battery is AWESOME!!!! I charged it at 5amps on my advantage that is going to be replaced this week by the much smaller Core charger. I will have to say from run to run the battery worked great. I am going to be practicing tomorrow also trying to get runs thru the pack for the nats. I am so pleased with this battery. I will be buying another 5000 to have as a back up. I think these are the last batteried I buy this year.

UDC10: smaller size, 4A max charge rate, and no balancing capabilities. Otherwise the same as the UDC20: Backlit, full selection of charge connectors, and etc.

You could but its doesn't leave much room for error. the balance leads are only about 1 1/2 inches long.

Long story short: I let someone run my car with Core 5000 Lipo but they forgot to stop running when the battery ran down. Doh!! As soon as I found out, i threw the battery on the charger and charged it to around 50-70%.

Question: How can I tell if the pack has been damaged by overdischarge?
