I charge my 6S lipo today, and find that one cell somehow is over .1v lower than the other five. Should I peform a discharge first to get all the cells voltage equal and then recharge the pack?

You could use a balancing charger....

I would discharge/charge that battery a couple of times.

What charger are you using?

Charging/discharging isn't going to fix the problem, it's just going to add a few cycles to the LiPos.

The balancing charger will attempt to balance them, and you can also use a cell balancer. Either way, the device attempts to level the charge across the cells. But the real problem is that your cells aren't all that well matched.

Use a balancer that works without the charger, like a Blinky and then balance charge the pack. If that one cell won't balance out, I would think that cell or the connection to it is bad.

I just balance charge it with my Turnigy 6 and it works fine now.
