i have a charger that was working fine yesterday, today its telling me i have a connection break.
i tried different leads and balance board, and it still says connection break. i tried the original leads and balance board on another charger and they work fine.

i took the charger apart and found a screw rolling around inside, i think this screw touched something and shorted my charger out.

is there anyone here in michigan that i can take this charger too that can check it and possibly fix it?

just to be sure did you try a different battery to make sure its not one of the balance leads.I had that happen once, one of the balance wires broke inside the shrinkwrap,the charger wouldn't let me start the charge

That’s crazy! I bought a Thunder AC6 from Xheli about 2 months ago, when I opened the box I could hear something rattling around in the charger. Disassembled it before using it and found a screw floating around inside, looked it over good and could not find were the screw went, stuck it back together and it’s been working fine, I got lucky, I did hear the screw inside before I powered it up, it could have caused a lot of damage to mine also, strange.

thats just it, i`ve had this charger sense may of 09. i never really moved it sense i bought it, its been in the same spot this whole time.

anyway, for some reason the balance portion of the charger decided to start working again.

i wonder why they are throwing in a extra screw? i know its free of charge, but i really dont need the screw and there does`nt seem to be a spot for it in the charger.

i would get another charger, but i`m flat broke.
if i could afford another charger i was looking at this http://cgi.ebay.com/New-iMAX-B6-LCD...=item27ad31d5ad
or this http://cgi.ebay.com/GE-Power-B6-Lip...=item2a05a955ac
or even this http://cgi.ebay.com/GT-POWER-Rc-A6-...=item3cac1f7272
this one is identical to the t6 i have now http://cgi.ebay.com/GE-Power-B6-Lip...=item3a59e2ecf2

i know its nothing specical, but it really does`nt matter, i cant buy it anyway.
