Charger Troubles

September 15th

I held my breath and took the charger to bits, hoping against all reason that the problem stopping this intricate electronic device from performing the precise and delicate job of safely charging a Lithium Ion battery pack would be obvious – and it was! Three resistors had gone pop, showering the inside of the case with electrolyte and leading to an erratic charge current.¬†Although the whole thing is stuck together with a sort of thermal silicone sealant I eventually got it apart without breaking anything else and unsoldered the bothersome bits. New ones ordered, they should arrive at almost the same time as the fast charger – so we’ll go from no chargers back to two!
