I have charged and discharged my battery successfully about 20 times. When I plugged in the charger today, the LED on the charger did not turn red.
My charging setup is show on this diagram I drew and also posted a few weeks back
I measured voltage in every possible place and I can’t figure out what is going on.
- The charger is constantly putting out 25.2 volts
- The leads leaving the charge port are still carrying 25.2 volts
- P- is 25.2 V
- B- is 25.2 V
- Negative battery terminal is 25.2 V.
If I connect the positive charge port lead to the battery positive terminal nothing happens. The voltage read from the battery leads is 21.3 V and the charger stays green. In some cases after completing the circuit, the voltage measured in various places starts fluctuating anywhere between 2 V and 20 V. This is what confuses me the most. I suppose it is possible that just the green LED on the charger is faulty and the board is actually charging, but I can’t wrap my head around this weird voltage. Granted, I am not the most experienced in electronics…
Anyways, what do you think? Where do you think the problem might lie? If you have any additional questions I will try to answer quickly, I really just want to get back on the road.
Thanks a lot for taking the time to read this post!
