For the two weeks I've used both the 106B+ and 1010B+ with over a dozen NiCd, NiMH and LiPo packs and have been very happy with them. I had to adjust the delta-V for charge termination for my NiMH packs, but I expected that.

Hey

I just get that 106b + charger yesterday and i have a problem what need solving.

I try to charge my GM lipo v-maxx 4000 7.4v 2s but that charger won`t do it.

I use that lipo`s own balance/charge wire

Error message is : battery check >> low voltage

What i did wrong?

possibly out of balance and needs to be balanced on a seperate balancer or possibly the battery is below the 2.8v minimum per cell.
Measure across the balance tap the individual cell voltages and you will see if either is the hassle.
If you read teh manual there is battery profile fro recovering batteries with low volatge.
Think its trickle charges the batery.
You will have to check the manual for details.

Hey

Well, i`m not sure about that at battery is below 2.8v. I try to read manual, but did`t find something new

I have two same brand lipos

I test those bought lipos with my other charger (LRP Pulsar 3) with graupner 6balancer and it charge those lipos like before and nothing wrong.

Just want to know what i did wrong??

Thanks
