Voltz 6250 Charger question
Could some explain what the numbers in the display of the charger mean by the word Ballance? I had seen the term in another post but I can't find it.

Should I be concerned what that number is and if so why?

Thanks.

O.K.

When balance charging the display shows the battery type, charging AMPS, voltage of the pack, charger mode, mAh added and time in that mode in that order left to right.

If the 206B works the same as the 306B, if you push the third button (inc), while balance charging, it shows the individual cell voltage.

The the mAh added is the question that I have. Whats so important to knowing how many mAh have been added? Should I keep that info in a log? I have started a log with all cells voltage both after flight and after charge. I also log overall voltage, charge rate, time to charge, and balance info for each batt. I also mark the batts with a marker each time i charge.

Is there anything else to track? Thanks for the info.

Gary, Of all the stuff you mentioned the mAh put back into the pack is one of the most important items to know or track.

I don't track any of this information but some guys do.
All I track is the number of cycles and I sometime watch the mAh that I put back in.

I say sometimes because I parallel charge my packs most of the time.
You really can't see that number when parallel charging.
Thanks, TheWoodCrafter

Thanks WoodCrafter for that info, so is there a good or bad limit that I should be looking for? I use Pulse 65C 6s 2600 mAh.Trex 500FB Trex 600ePro McpX. Synergy E7SE

Well, what ever time you fly to use 80% of the pack, if you see you are putting in 90% at some point the pack has lost some capacity. You will have to shorten your flying time to use only 80%. Thunder Power says replace if the pack has lost 20% capacity.

Just follow the accepted usage guide lines for LiPo's and you should be fine.

You bought some expensive packs (65C).
I know some hard 3D fliers that don't even use them.

The next pack you buy you might want to consider 25C or 30C.
They will work just fine for you.
