how many batteries do you have? try grouping them into similar charging patterns....use the maha to cycle them once you group them.

Interesting, I havent had anything like that with my Maha MH-C9000. Do you use a fan over the cells? Cell contacts clean? What cells are you using?

Is it consistantly the same slot? Or is it just that one cell... Have you tried charging in other chargers, and discharging on the maha to see what the capacity is on the cell when charged in a different charger?

its not always the same slot or cell it seems it has a mind of its own .somtimes after i dis then charge them 2 or 3 cells will only have like 5 -10 mah in like 4 min then the other cell would take about an hour with 800 - 900 mah
