Two possibilities that I can think of. First is a defective battery with a bad or weak cell. The other can be your balance board going bad or is dirty. I have had mine give me some weird readings due to a poor connection on the board. If the other batt is OK and the problem is repeatable with the questionable pack try discharging it and charging it up a couple of times and see if it equalizes out. Sometimes they do after a couple of cycles. If it doesn't call Ready heli and get it warranteed. Also ,if you have another charger available, try it out on that one and see if the same imbalance happens with that charger. Why did it take a couple of hours to charge your pack? How many amps are you charging at? With that charger you can charge a 6S pack at 4amps which is just under 1C for that pack. Shouldn't take much more than an hour max at 4 Amps.Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery, Today is a GIFT

it is saying <0.25v
i can't charge more than 1.85a
it gives me invalid input voltage. the other pack charges fine. i can only discharge at .50 takes a long time to discharge. i tried it but only let it go for about 2.5 hours and it only took out 635mah
then tried to charge and got same error a little into charging. maybe i will leave it on discharge all night and see what happens.

thanks
chris

Im having same problem with the same charger but different packs.My charger is new out of the box with new batteries and some older ones.So that rules out dirty balance board in my behalf.I tried charging @1amp for the first charge and it kept from having an imbalance,but if i try to charge at 1c it always ends the charge with imbalance or over voltage on one cell(way over like 4.4v)thats not good and this is with balancer connected

After trying different batts im thiking bad charger.If you have any luck i would love to know your finds.

Remember to set your voltage cut off on those new packs while discharging.

First thing if it gives you an "invalid input voltage" you need a bigger power supply. You are pulling too much current from your power source and pulling the voltage down below where the charger can function. With adequate power this charger can charge a 6s pack at 4amps. If you hold down the SEL Mode button and go through the menus you can change the input level threshold (To scroll through the menus keep hitting the SEL Mode button once you are in the menu mode) If you lower it you may be able to charge at a higher rate if your power supply is up to it. I have mine set for 11V. While in this menu mode you can also set the system timeout time. I have mine set for 10hrs. You can also set the cutoff voltage in these menus. I have mine set for 3.8 per cell for discharge. Discharging is very slow on this charger with a 6S pack and it will take a long time to discharge a full pack. A quicker way would be to just hover for a few minutes. One note: if you plan on charging or discharging 6S packs with a 610C I would recommend having some sort of fan blowing on it or it will get hot as it has no internal fan. I do not know if will get hot enough to damage it but I'd rather be safe than sorry. Let me know if you have any more questions as I have been using this charger for several years now.

i can't hover cause i haven't built the heli yet. yeah seems if i charge the other pack over 1.85a it gives me the same error. actually say >.25v.

thanks for the replies

You might have a bad charger or a bad balance board if they both do it. Do you have some known good batteries that you can test the charger with? Do you have another charger or a friend with another charger that you can test the batteries with. I highly doubt that both packs are dead. It's possible but I'd look at the charger first. If you are going to be charging that size pack you may want to look into getting a more powerful charger anyway as those packs can be charged much faster than that charger is capable of charging them.Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery, Today is a GIFT

If you haven't built your heli I wouldn't charge the packs up fully yet. You don't want to leave them fully charged for more than a day or two or you will end up damaging them. Best to leave at a storage charge until you are ready to use them.
