Then when you start it the "balance recommended" message comes up with 5s or 6s displaying above it. If it says 5s press the up arrow button once to change it to display as 6s then press the start button to begin the bulk charge.docnjoj wrote:Well this must be the place to rant about my new Hyperion Charger! It charged a lead acid battery fine but it wont charge my 6 cell lifepo4 A123 pack at all. It wont do it as a bulk charger! It simply says Connection error and makes ambulance noises! What could I be doing wrong. The battery reads 19.6 volts or about 3.22 volts per cell on the DVM. Help!
Yep it sounds good to me. So why won't it charge? I realizwd my balance wire are faulty but it should still bulk charge to 3.60 with the balancer not connected.
