I have just tried to charge my Protech Li-Pos with a Hecell Charger.
I know this charger is one of the cheaper chargers about, but it should still work.
I connected everything up as per instructions and adjusted the jumpers to 3 cell and set the charge limit to 1200 mah.
The P- Power input light came on, then the CC light(First Stage) light came on. Then after about 30 mins the F- battery fault light came on.
Something was obviously up. Had the battery voltage dropped too low??
I also after reading a previous post checked the supply voltage to make sure it was up to the job. The charger can work off 8v-24v so my supply battery is OK.
I have since connected it back up to the Heli and it will hardly turn the rotors!!

Does anyone else have experience of this charger?

PROBLEM SOLVED

After speaking to Overlander, they told me that for my charger to charge 3 cells or more it requires and input voltage, of 16 volts or more.
So 12v is not enough.
I just need to find a 16v-24v supply!!!
