Somone who gets it!potatorage wrote:You should be at least monitoring your individual cell voltages when bulk charging. Hobby king sells these really cheap 8S beepers that work great and take only a couple of minutes to attach to your balance leads. I use an A123 pack but I still follow through with this precaution every time I charge.

I think most agree that a cell LVC and HVC would likely have stopped this from happening.

i always try to charge while the pack is at room temp, i recall someone saying that a lipo cell charged to full 4.20v in the cold (* sub zero ) then taken into a warm enviroment can cause a rise in voltage.....
curious to know, since i see snow in the field.
and.. 2nd : was this 20C hardcase packs ?
