    Hello all
    So decided to update my batteries a few months ago. Ordered 6 Hohm Life batteries (authentic) and married them up in pairs. I think 2 of my sets have unbalanced batteries. This one is the worst set. So I'm curious to what might cause this and if there is a solution. Battery A was in slot 1 and battery B was in slot 3. Thanks yall

    I have noticed that certain mods drain the batteries unevenly.
    I'll put a set on charge and one will be .2 volts higher than the other.

    Some chargers come with a quick charge slot. I have a blackcell battery charger it has 4 slots and the fourth is for quick charge

    To see if the charger is reading correctly, check or test the Voltage of the Batteries with a Volt Meter or another MOD. You can't trust the results unless you test them with multiple devices and compare the results.
