So I got my Turnigy 6S 5000mAh 40C batteries, and a dual 200W iSDT D2 smart balance charger, made a couple XT90-XT60 adapter cables, and… No dice. I set everything correctly, to start safely I’m just doing 1A charging (eventually will do 5A to match 1C), but even then… it starts out fine, then flashes “CH1 Warning: Input voltage lower than 27.0V!” for a split second before a crash/reboot.
All the cells are well balanced around 3.77V, it recognizes it’s 6S, and has a total of around 22.4V. I don’t know why on earth the total would be over 27V since that’s well over 4.2V/cell.
This is my first experience with big LiPos so I’m just happy nothing’s blown up yet, but it’d be nice if they actually worked too! Anyone know what’s going on here?
