another thing to watch is if a battery has a bad cell it can effect how the powerlab charger works while charging several packs at once,i had four 4cell 4000mah 40c batteries charging last night and it switched to safety charge.....i used a battery checker after waiting for the packs to get to more than 92% after 2 hr's on the charger when i realized one pack had a bad #2cell. it was in the crash of the 540t and i could feel slight puffing. i'm going to be charging batteries now,but plan on cycling the damaged pack on the powerlab6 tonight. hopefully it can be balanced and put back to use. it's a zippy and cost's around $35. plus i need it to get my extra 300s powered by 7cells running a 3cell with the 4's.
