On the Maha 9000c got an HIGH reading on one cell
Does anyone know if that cell is completely shot or can it be rescued?

Also how often do you guys discharge completely your cells?

Cell is done...

Opinions vary about discharging but best practice is to discharge to 0.7-0.9 volt after every use, let rest (times vary but I let cool) and then charge.

Thanks Cowboy
Was looking around on the net and found that when the Impedance gets too high thats a sign that something went wrong internally and that cell should
be discarded

Thanks also for the discharging info
Gonna try that route

Yea , your cell is gone now , get a new one, and about discharging , completely discharge it once a month and then recharge it after some time , this way you'll increase its life too.
