Not sure this is all TP210's and A123 stuff but for my stuff I am having a problem with the TP 210 bleeding off almost 170 mAh!

After a full charge and a finished balance I drop my A123's back on the charger and get back between 79 and 170 mAh more back into the pack, if you fly A123 and run them to the limits even 80 mAh may save you from a forced auto.

this is just a heads up for the people who time their flights, don't push your max time without knowing your pack is topped off.

Yes, I've seen the same thing. If I have time, I usually stick it back on the charger and top it off, using a low current setting, like 0.5A.

Just got in my 2 PB-6 balancers today, gonna try them out tomorrow, the thing i love the most is being able to see individual voltages per cell with these this way I know when or how close I am to balanced.

Cryofix,

What are these PB-6 balancers you speak of? I just got some A123's and am thinking of picking up a Cell-Pro balancer/charger. Is there something better?

Thanks for the link. I don't see the voltage per cell display Cryofix is talking about. Sounds like a nice feature. Does that require additional hardware?

Why don't you look at individual cells with your TP1010c/210 combo?

I do. :D
