I've been exploring the world of lipos and, although I am not an expert, I don't trust Chinese made lipos and, I may be wrong but, I think that's what's in the hcigar. The Chinese mod makers also have a habit of calling out the mAh readings as a total of the 3 separate cells (that are in series). So, your 1300 mAh batt has 3 cells with about 430 mAh each. Maybe one of your cells is failing?

I would replace it with a lipo that evolve approves of such as the one mentioned in the data sheet. Or here's a link to an excellent lipo: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__11951__Turnigy_nano_tech_2200mah_3S_45_90C_Lipo_Pack.html

This particular one is probably too big for your box but they offer others. Good luck. I'd like to hear the outcome.

Nathan, I apologize. I did some digging and saw that hcigar advertises it's battery as having a capacity of 3900 milliamps. So, yes, each cell would be 1300 milliamps. Nevertheless, I still remain cautious around Chinese lipos. Hope you got your charging problem fixed.
