Default Aurora 9 Tx battery toast?

After an overnight charge on an Aurora 9 Tx pack, the battery capacity read about 13% on the transmitter. So after a discharge test on my CBA III at c/5, the voltage during the test was about 6.0.~6.2 volts throughout the entire test, interestingly, it did test to 1.1 amp hr. at this voltage. But I have to assume on five cells. Anyone else with a charge issue on an Aurora 9 pack? I have a total flight time on this pack of about an hour. Mike Mayberry, If you read this can I warranty this pack? Radio purchased through Tower.

Default RE: Aurora 9 Tx battery toast?

It does sound like you have a bad cell. I am running the stock pack on my tx and if I setup the back light to turn off at 10 or 20 seconds, Im getting over 5 hours on a charge.
On a full charge my battery pack reads 8.4 volts.
