good morning gentlemen,
i`ve recently purchased the:
-cycle satiator 48v
-52v, 20Ah (14s, 6p, 18650 INR 35E ) battery,
and seem to be having a bit of a hard time with them.
So far, i was not able to charge the battery full ( 100% )
the process begins with preconfigured current ( say: 2 Amps ),
but soon goes down to below 1A, and starts oscilating: (voltage and current - as well )
like 0.7, 0.5, 0.4, 0.2, 0.1A loop.
with frequent `Pwr fault restart`in between.
sometimes, i`m able to resume charging by repluging satiator,
sometimes, it wakes up when i repeatedly press the upper button few times,
and other times, it would not charge further at all- giving a `Pwr` every time-
and shortly after it`s been restarted.
So far,the most i got was 85% -no go further.
when it does- charging goes extremaly slow,
Yesterday attempt, got me :
from 52.7v to 55.7v
(52v lithium, 100% 2A profile )
since 10 am, till 00 pm ( round 14 hours ),
that is only 78%.
Today, i tried to go further but it stops on Pwr shortly after reset
my multimeter reads:
Although that is my first Satiator device, i think, something doesn`t go as it normally should,
the battery goes with bluetooth BMS.
where it shows all 14 cell groups, that are properly ballanced
(difference between stongest and weakest group is at the moment: 3.966v --> 3.960v ).
I have made a few shots of the satiator`s display during charging,
perhaps those can better explain the situation than words,
so, i was wondering if somebody might shed some light on
what is possibly happening,
and help me better understand the problem,
or maybe even sugest a solution.
Ps: i have to add that i`ve tried charging on :
- 2A, 3A, 4A, 7A,- similar results..
- ` Force start` feature- Pwr fault
- loading my old 48v, 17.5 Ah battery- similar scenario...`
For some reason i could not attach pictures to the post,
so there is a lint to google drive folder:
