    Thanks for the advice. My charger just shut off at 58.7. Do you leave it plugged into the charger even after it's shut down for reaching set voltage?

    I'd do a couple of 8 hour charges to make sure all the cells are balanced. Every new pack I get goes through at least 2, 8 hour charges.

    I have about ten 80% charge cycles on it to date.
    Now I want to charge it to 100% for a longer trip I have planned, but it will only charge to 58.7V. Is this normal? or should it reach 59v?

    Thanks for your responses.
    4.2 v/cell x 14 cells = 58.8. As far as I know, you are pretty much there at 58.7
