Default Battery Cell uneven

I have several batteries that I have charged up and the cells are uneven. One cell will read 4.19 , the other will read 4.01 I have always used my Triton E2 charger with the balance port on. I usually charge 10 batteries before a track night. Its only a couple of batteries that are uneven.

Anyway to even out the cells ?

thank you

Sounds like your charger is not doing a good job, might be time for an upgrade

You can charge cells individually but shouldnt need to if the packs are in good condition

Cheers

I just looked at my charger and it does not let me charge each cell individually. Am i better off discharging the pack down to 6V then charging it again?

When i charge my packs after a run the cells are uneven so it starts to charge uneven.

If the cells are uneven the battery is not in good shape

If the batteries are new and a decent brand, buy a better charger

Get one that does not balance until the CV phase of the charge process

Cheers
