I have just managed to damage the charging circuit on two boards with his new Turnigy battery.
Everything works apart from the charging.
I know its something to do with the battery because ive tried a zippo on another board and it works ok.
Any ideas as ive now ruined two boards. battery.jpg

Really? What has it done or stopped doing? Does the board shorts damage?

Can you connect the battery back up to one of the boards (including the main power leads )and post a device monitor screenshot?

Is the tap connector backwards on this battery pack, maybe?

Can you try the prototype firmware james posted in the screen thread last night?

That should help if it is software. It still vapes fine, even with the screen off?

If you roll back to 7/16 does the screen cooperate?

Why does that picture of that battery not have any voltage dotted as they should have dotted.   Is that battery above 11.1v 3S?

Nope the battery is 3s 11.1v. I bought 3 of these same as OP and 1 of them didn't have the dotted marking, seems that they rushing these batteries out probably forgot mark them.

I double check on external lipo charger before attached to the board.
