Re: Team GH (Hitek)charger problem

I seem to be having the exact same issue with the Hitec version. I keep 2 ports programmed for my lipo's, the third port for Nimh and the last for my newest chemistry LifePo batteries. A month ago I saw some input voltage errors on one port then it blacked out. I unplugged the unit, plugged it in again and it seemed fine. This past week I was charging 2 gassers for an event and they took virtually no charge to get "full". I flew numerous flights then charged for more. The A123 packs showed "full" after only a few Mah were put in. This seemed impossible and I got a bad feeling that my charger was failing. I borrowed another charger and found out that I have a serious problem with mine. I guess one port is faulty and I don't feel equipped to open it up for circuit board repair. I am out of warranty but perhaps a call to GH it worth making. I will test the other 3 ports to see if they can charge my Life packs once I program the needed parameters in. For sure they have been charging my Lipo's as I fly them weekly with no discernible degradation from when they were new.
so many planes, such a short summer!
