Default Out of Balance Lipo Cell


I have a Reedy 3S 2400mAh Lipo pack, one of the cells is out of balance. The readings on my TP 820 are about 3.90, 4.20, 4.20. Wondering if anyone has had success in getting packs into balance when they are this far out. Any suggestions?

Going to try to cycle perhaps, take them down with storage mode, then charge again, couple of times maybe.

Wondering if I can rig something to just charge that 1s up a bit to help speed the process of getting them balanced.

You can isolate the low voltage cell by checking the voltage with a voltmeter at the balance connector. When you know which cell is low, you can charge this one individually as 1S.
