    Lipo Questions

    I purchased a X Maxx about 1 month ago.. I got 2 Lipo batteries. Venoms 3s 5000 50c I was able to try the X Maxx out for one day cause I was leaving out of town for 2 weeks. Truck ran well for that day. I then put both batteries on storage mode with my charger. All 3 cells were at 3.80 volts when done putting in storage mode. Now two weeks later when i went to recharge batteries my charger says High voltage. When I check each cell one is at 1.4 volts other is at 5.2 volts and 3rd is at 3.8 volts ..on both batteries. Can't charge or do anything with them. Any suggestions..
    Thanks

    Can you test the cell voltages with a stand-alone voltmeter?

    Just checked each cell with a voltmeter and its showing 3.8 volts per cell..Must be my charger that is defective.

    Then please stop using that charger. If it is reading the voltages incorrectly, it cannot balance correctly.
