LiitoKala Voltage reading wrong by -0.30V
#21
Yes I also found my brand new liitokala 500 very dodgy, i now charge my batteries 8 at a time on my imax b6, that consistently charges to 4.2 volts then I throw the cells in the Liliuokalani and do the normal test, much more consistent results.
I’ve also found the liitokala is off by a few millivolts, it says 4.2, my multi meter says 4.13/4, that’s measured on a $10 jay car meter, i do have a more expensive meter but use the small one for convenience

yeah ... and then found WHO to take the dead LiPo???

LiPo is ... tweaky, to say the least.

18650's don't swell up into a balloon .. and are entirely more stable than any LiPo's ... (know anyone with a drone/quadcopter that runs bottom mount and crash landed / flown lately? softpacks are ... disposable).

My point was simply this -- Lithium cells WILL charge to way over spec (without exploding).  Doesn't mean that a fire will ensue, but definitely DOES mean something is wrong in terms of safety/charging protocol.

I am an iSDT fanbois.  also a proud owner of two SC608AC's .. totally recommended.
