Default lipo help

I have a Intellect 7.4 50C battery. I cannot seem to balanced charge it at 5 amp. I use a hyperion charger. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

It all depends on the internal resistance of the pack and c rating of charge.Does it charge at 3 amp or 1 amp ?

What capacity? 5000 mahr?

How old is it?

When was the last time you charged it?

Why won't it charge? Does the charger just stop prematurely or does the battery just not take a charge? What size (mah) is the battery?

Maybe its the charger... have you tried to charge a similar battery at the same Amps... I would try another battery to see if its a problem with the charger or the battery.. Also try charging the battery on another lipo charger and see if it will take the 5amp charge.
