    Error #8 on a Duratrax Onyx 245 Charger

    Good morning,

    I am periodically, more often then not getting this error when I charge my Traxxas 3C 1400mah battery.

    "Err.8" Balance voltage error. When charging Li-xx with the balance cable connected to the charger, if balance cell voltage is more or less than acceptable voltage of each battery, this error should occur.

    I am having trouble understanding what this is saying, is the battery no good, is it salvageable or is the charger or the balance board?

    Any help in understanding this would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Kevin

    It may not be able to read all the cells of the battery. Make sure the pins/contacts of the battery are pushed to their internal stops.

    I would carefully use a multi-meter to probe the battery contacts and verify the voltages of the cells. If they are good, then you'd need to contact Duratrax regarding the problem with their charger.
