Hello, I recently ordered a 1100mah lipo battery from the Core Electronics store but when I read its voltage with a multimeter, it read 0 volts. I also ordered a Makerverse USB-C lipo charger to charge it, but when I plug it in and try charging it it reads that there is power from the battery, but when I unplug it it drops back down to 0 volts. How would I fix this?
I would review the measuring techniques.
You could possible be measuring on the AC voltage ranges.
No, I’m measuring DC voltage
My other suggestion is try using the battery for something. If it is really 0V then the result will be zero.
yeah i did and nothing happened (i think its dead)
Interesting to find a battery as dead as that (0V). Where are you measuring. At the battery itself or at a connector. If you are able try measuring at the battery. It is not unknown for the crimps in a connector to be faulty. The chargers usually detect when the charging current is very low and report charging complete, if the leads were open circuit and no current flowing the charger might assume a full battery. I am not familiar with that charger so I don’t know. I tend to use commercial chargers which indicate in some way if no battery present. If you have a commercial unit that does this it might be worth a try.
I would check any wires and connectors first before discarding completely.
PS: The voltage you read with the charger plugged in could be charger volts.
Welcome to the forums!
It seems like the battery might be dead, a reading of 0V is fairly unusual, could you send us through an email at email@example.com and we can try and figure out what has gone wrong.
