I have had it on the balance mode of my charger for quite some time, but I have been careful to watch the individual cell voltage and not let it go above 4.2v. Below is a picture of the cell levels of the pack that is out. Will I be able to bring this pack into balance and if so, what is the best option for doing that? Or is this a warranty claim?
I am still waiting to hear input from you guys on how long of wires I can use for the watt meter.

Gary, just curious, is there any difference in performance or packs staying better balanced doing it this way over
the method i/we used with my pack? i.e grouping the + & - leads together after packs are connected in series.
