I just got all my parts for my first build and I ran into this problem…
I tested the battery cells with a multimeter to see that I connect everything the right way. But I noticed that when I connect the multimeter to the battery negative and the start going through the cells, the 2nd and 3rd cells give me the exact same reading, no voltage increase.
If I put one head of the multimeter to the 2nd cell and the other one to the 3rd cell I get a reading of 0.0V. Every other combination seems to give me some results.
Might it be just an empty cell, or is my lipo faulty? I’ve not charged them yet, but I don’t want to plug the bms in if it’s something is wrong with the battery.
