Have you changed wiring mode to XH?

I've tested changing the wiring mode. Didn't make a difference on charging as some others have experienced. It's been a while. I think the purpose was concern about using the correct wiring mode not getting correct IR after others reported problems charging and it was determined to be from incorrect mode. It either didn't have an impact on IR for last cell or I didn't check. I suspect that using the FMA paraboard forced/caused the PL8 to use the correct wiring mode.

When I changed it to XH it changed the value of the last cell. I do still have an issue with split 6s packs but get high than normal readings on cell 3. John from Rev says it's a known issue 2 with the bump controller, but never said if it would be addressed.

Thanks. I might look at it again. It just gets depressing when you try to resolve something and things end up being non deterministic. Are you using an FMA Paraboard?

There is a known issue with the Bump, butni dont think it is related to your cell 3 problem. That issue is very large values on first or last cell, and has been difficult to reproduce.
I would check all of your balance connections and make sure they are solid and clean. If u have 2 chargers, try swapping everything between the 2 chargers and see if the problem stays with the charger or the balance board/cabling.
If the problem stays with the charger, then it may need to be recalibrated at Revo.

Default IR Readings

These are brand new lipos and I only have the inaccurate IR readings on the split 6s packs. I asked John is this would be addressed in a firmware update and he said now and that they will stop making split 6s lipos. Oh well.
