I was charging some lipos in the hot garage today and when I came back to check on it the screen was lit up, but nothing was displayed. I unplugged than plugged back in and nothing...lit screen for a bit than nothing would come on.

After about an hour of sitting inside, all is well. Anyone had an overheating issue or is this new Hyperion on the way out?

*Haven't seen this happen in hundreds of charges, including using it on hot days.

Strange. If it is getting hot, something is probably wrong. I have used my DUO for 8 hours straight without a break charging from both ports on an 80 degree+ day and it never got warm.

Yeah, not sure if it was the heat...maybe it was the outlet in the garage? Should have tried it in other places right away. It was an outlet that had the test/ reset switch in it. BUT I have used that outlet before.

Hot Duo
I would think that if the Duo was too hot it would display the message and temporarily stop charging until it cooled off enough..and then resume?

Funny you start this thread. (Well not really funny as in ha ha ha, but you know what I mean.) I too have experienced this condition and each time it was when the charger was outside in close to 90 degree days. I've never had a problem with it being on for hours in my cool basement, but outside it seems to be a different story. The same as you, once the unit cooled down a bit I was able to resume charging without issue.

guys if this is the case it may be a good idea for you fellows to send out an email to them so that they can look at larger fans or alternative vented casing for future chargers etc? Just a thought as it makes sense.
