Conanthewarrior Posted February 8, 2016 Author Report Share Posted February 8, 2016 Hi everyone. I recently had to RMA my hotcig V2, as it had started to read batteries that were in perfect balance, as SEVERELY out of balance, cell 1 at 1V, cell 2 at over 5V, and cell 3 anywhere in between. I just got the device back today-went to use it-and it has the EXACT same issue. Now-I know it is NOT the batteries, as I have tested them with a multimeter and also they read as balanced, and work fine on my Hotcig V1. I have even tried converting it to run on dual 18650's like my V1, with batteries that are balanced, and it is reading cell 1 at over 5 volts, and cell 2 at around 2 Volts!I am really at a loss what to do-I own 3 other DNA200's, that work flawlessly-but this just will not read in balance. I have tried different leads, and even as mentioned changing from a 3S Li-PO to a 2S 18650 configuration. It is so annoying, as I know evolv have fixed it perfectly-so why is it not functioning? The chip is new, it was programmed fairly recently, so it must of been replaced. Does anyone, at all, have any idea on how to get this device working? It is obviously not the balance tap, as it is still doing it after EVOLV have repaired it. This also happens with a completely standard escribe setup-even with default settings it will just not work. Please could somebody help me, as I am lost on how to sort this issue out. Should I uninstall and reinstall Escribe? It is the only thing I can think of, a Software or firmware issue. Kind regards, Conan. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
