    IMG_0296.JPG Hi all,

    So I've had my nero 6s w/diff locks since Feb 17'. I currently use maxamps 6500 3S batteries in my nero. After running it the other day I noticed that one of the batteries cell voltage was 2.5x and the other cells were 3.39 and 3.4x. Yikes!! The other pack was like 3.4x across the board. I checked the cells immediately after running then when I got back to my house and plugged them into the charger the voltage came up a little. Is there a chance my esc is not working properly? Both of these batteries are brand new so I doubt it's the batteries. Any insight would be much appreciated. I will attach a pic of the cell readings.

    My guess is that it's the battery as the ESC cannot pull power from just one cell.

    Ok, well I spoke with max amps. They are sending me 2 brand new 6500 3S packs and a low voltage alarm for nothing. Now that's customer service!! Truly a great company. Thanks for the insight brother.
