13.2Ah Smartcore help

Beitragvon griffter » 24.05.2014, 15:20

Hi I purchased the above battery.
On pressing the button to check battery status the 20% led flashes 4 times. No other LED's come on.

I've connected the battery to a Charger1 (not connected to mains) and it reads 8.3v which suggests its full
Plugging the Charger1 into the mains and after a few mins it says Full.

If the 20% led is flashing 4 times what is it telling me as I was expecting at full condition all the leds to be lit?
Charger1 is implying the battery its full so what am I missing.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Lee

Shouls this work straight away or do I need to fully discharge the battery 3 times as per the video?

I would think you could just go ahead and try the calibration without doing the full discharges.

Well I've tried the recalibration and it's made no difference.
Smartcore 20% LED flashes 4 times only.
Will try and discharge / recharge next .

Update:

Having recalibrated the battery the charger1 was used and 3 x discharge 1 x charge programme was selected.
It took a long time to run through the programme but late last night the battery was reading full and showing 90%.
I disconnected the charger and then used the normal charge programme and it indicated it was again charging.
This mooring the battery indicator is lighting correctly and showing 100%

Looks like after recalibration you have to follow the instructions and fully discharge/recharge the battery.
Not sure how you would do this without the charger1 but all is now working correctly so Im a happy boy again.
:D
