I recently bought a new LiPO battery and decided to measure its capacity on an electronic load. I was disappointed to find that the measured capacity was about half the manufacturers quoted figure. Further investigations showed that the problem was the charger. The charger type is an IMAX B6. Charging the LiPO with a constant current source delivered the full capacity from the battery. I’m wondering if my charger is faulty or if they are all like that?
Anyone done any measurements?
Battery is 2200mAh 3S type.
