1 case 1 try to skip the balancer board and in case 2 be sure you stick the connector right.
I am using a balance board, but I'm seeing the same results on two different balance boards using two different channels on the charger. Charger is packed up for some practice today, but I'll try plugging it in directly when I can.

It dawned on me last night that I also had a Hobbywing LCD Program Box that has a battery voltmeter on it. Voltages on all my batteries are all within acceptable ranges (lower than 4.2v, higher than 3.5v). It's really looking to me like its something up with the charger, but that still doesn't explain why my 4S SMC batteries balance and charge just fine.

My buddy has a single Venom charger and I think I'll try them on his today and see if I get a similar error.
