    Question Hitec X1 Mini Error Message

    i have a Hitec X1 Mini Lipo charger and its throwing error message

    " Connect Error: Check Main Port"

    the manual says that the battery connection is incorrect

    have checked multiple times, the battery is connected correctly

    outlet voltage is on spot

    what can it be?

    damaged charger?

    i have tried with different batteries and throws same error

    the error occurs a couple of seconds after starting to charge

    can someone point me in the right direction? thanks in advance!

    Not familiar with that particular charger but I guess that the battery gets plugged into a lead that then plugs into the charger. If so and the fault occurs with multiple batteries I would suspect this lead has gone open circuit or that the sockets this lead plugs into have failed inside the charger.

    The lead is easy to check if you have a multimeter (measure the resistance from one end of the lead to the other for both halves) the resistance should be very close to zero. With out a multimeter you could use a suitably rated bulb (and known to be good) and with the battery plugged in to the lead, connect the bulb to the other end. If the bulb lights the lead is good.

    Hope this helps,

    Pete.

    went to my local hobby shop (were i bought it)

    the charger is gone, since it was only 1 month old paid the difference and upgraded to Venom Pro Duo Charger

    thanks anyways for the tips! cheers
