I've got a thunderpants lipo that has done this. I found it occured when the lipo nears the end of it's life.

How many charges has it had?

I have a 6s 5,000 Mah that I charge on my 10s that does this. I always fly the same time on it and when I go charge it back the fuel say's 9 to 11 percent but it takes back 4,000 Mah. What is up? Is that the bat or the charger? In a previous post here someone said that is usually when a bat is at the end of its life. Is that the case?

I have a friend who has seen his Hyperon Duo short cycle his Lipo's from time to time. No reason found....

He said when he charges two lipo's at the same time (each one in solo mode) one lipo will charge up fine and the other will (sometimes) short cycle. Says he can put the lipo (that was short cycled) back on charge and it will charge up just fine.

He's not happy with either one of his Hyperon Duos.

Keep up your rotor speed !

I've got an old evo25 6s 5000 lipo that can now do 7 mins of mild 3D but only puts back 3000. Previously I could only get 3 1/5 mins?

I did wonder if the ambient storage temp has something to do with it.

Wow, that is the first time I have ever heard of a complaint related to a hyperion charger. I have used just about every charger they have made with great success.
