    Battery won't charge past 1st red light but charger says it's working

    Hi Everyone,
    Sorry for the newb question. I have the Traxxas EZ Plus Charger and a Traxxas 5800mAh 2s Lipo.

    I've had no problems charging the battery since I bought it about 2 weeks ago; it's probably gone through 5-8 charge cycles, but now the battery seems to be stuck at the first red light, indicating that it won't charge, but the green light is still blinking as if it is charging (been over an hour without moving to the 2nd red light).

    I've only hit the 3.2V-3.4V cutoff 1 time, and that was the time before I charged it up completely and now this is the next attempt at charging. I assume that I hit the cutoff, as I have a Stampede with a brushless Castle motor and I am running default settings which should be auto-lipo.

    I'm assuming that if I ran the truck until it died that one time, the battery should still be fine, since it was in lipo mode.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Okay, apparently all I had to do was post to the forums and now it's finally gone to the next light.

    Strange that it took over an hour. But as long as it's charging I'm happy!
