    I just finished charging/discharging all 28 modules and balancing them so the voltages are the same. each one is reading at 7.32 volts. It is a little low because it took me a long to time do them all and some sat for a while. I was wondering if it is ok that these are this low? From what I understand they all just need to be the same and the voltage level doesn't necessarily matter?

    Should I top them all off or is 7.32 volts fine and the car will bring them back up once I put the battery back in?

    1. What equipment are you using?
    2. If you fully charged the modules, if they are healthy modules, they shouldn't reach 7.32 volts for months by just sitting

    For some reason I can't get the amazon link to properly format. This is a copy of the item name.

    SKYRC B6 AC V2 50W LiPo LiFe LiIon NiMH NiCd Battery Charger Discharge

    I've read that they slowly discharge while sitting.
