A few iCharger and Lipo questions
I bought an iCharger 308 Duo and finally got around to hooking it up. For tomorrow's flying I was charging up a couple of 3s 2200Mah Lipos and a couple of 6s 3300 Lipos. I am using the auto program to charge. The 6s batteries are Pulse brand and when finished charging the cells each had 4.2v and the MaH said 3450 on the screen. Did this over charge it? The next page showed each cell had 3.1 ohms.

Now on the 3s batteries, these are some cheap brand that I bought when I first bought a LiPo (I think they are called LP3 brand). When finished charging each of the three cells displays 4.2v but the MaH said 1250 and the ohms ranged from 9.1 to 11.0. Now I did start this battery last night and stopped it before going to bed. I restarted the charge when I got home from work.

Right now I am running the charger off of a deep cycle marine battery (12v). I do plan on picking up another and running 24v. I was surprised at how long it took me to charge the batteries. Like I said I used the auto program because I don't think I understand enough about LiPos to change it just yet. I am hoping RR member Jeepworld will stop by again soon and explain a few things to me.

You did not indicate if you were parallel charging the respective packs. If so then you have to do a little math on the charge rate and on the mah put into the pack. If parallel charged then your 3450 is actually split between the packs so each should have recieved 1725mah.

Unlike the FMA powerlabs which do the math internal based on how many packs you tell it you are charging.
