Balanced?
hi, i just sold my fuchai 213 to buy a new mod but i have worries because i cant see if my batteries are balanced, i cant see their jndividual voltage like in the fuchai, and i think i have problems with my charger because it stays red and when i move the batteries a little while still on charge it goes green. is there any way i can check the batteries voltage?

RE: Balanced?
The cheapest multimeter will be pretty accurate on voltage. Like 5 buck devices are reliable on voltage. On other measurements not so much.

Forget resistance and current measurements on cheap meters but their voltage measurements will be reliable.

RE: Balanced?
Sounds like you need a new charger tbh. The mods on board charger should be OK to use while you source another.
If theres a problem the mod will display something like 'Imbalanced batteries' and not allow you to fire it.

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

If the charger is doing this with new or fairly new cells i'd replace it .i'm not a big fan of onboard charging , but when a posibility of cell damage is the alternative then what works works .
