My battery may be bad, the charger only shows 5 cells being charged, at this point would using a balancer help?

YES - always use a balancer, especially with so many cells to balance out.

Also let your charger go through stage 1 and see if it changes to 6S after 2-3 minutes. If you run the pack 100% out of capacity this will happen, It doesn't mean anything is wrong with your battery. Make sure to sit by the charger and watch it to see what happens. DO NOT leave it unattended.

Presuming it eventually picks it up as a 6S pack, see how much charge goes into the battery, you should only be using around 80% capacity, around 3500mAh, otherwise the packs life will be short.Steve -Trex 700N, Trex 600N, Raptor 550E, 450SE, Mini Titan, Logo 5003D, Beam E4

Ok, sounds like I need to get a balancer to connect to that battery and my swift high power battery as well before the same thing happens to it.

When you're buying large capacity 6S lipos the cost of a balancer doesn't seem so much any more Steve -Trex 700N, Trex 600N, Raptor 550E, 450SE, Mini Titan, Logo 5003D, Beam E4
