    Onyx Charger

    I use the onyx 245 dual charger for my two lipos and ive noticed that the charger says end (finished) and most of the time the charge hasnt reached a full 5000mah, is this normal ? Is it safe to hit the start button again to see if it will finish to the 5000 mark ?

    Batteries =
    venom 2s 25c 5000 mah

    there can always be a little bit of milliamps left in the battery before charging

    ^^ +1 Your battery will (should) never go down to zero, this is even more important in a lipo pack. This is why you need to make sure your car has some kind of voltage checker, either a low voltage alarm or a built in LVC.
