Now that is smart.....




But the question is, have you bothered to even try it yet? Doesn't have to be a sticker, can be just a piece of paper.

My point being that it cou'd have to do with balance charging or it is a grounding contact.

The "sticker test" will prove if it is for grounding or not. If the sticker (or piece of paper) causes the mod to not work, it's a grounding contact.

On the other hand, if the mod does work with the sticker test, it may very well have to do with a balance charging circuit or something else.

Here's an example of what I mean on a single battery mod (Sigelei Fuchai 213 Squonker)...

+1 details
No voltage to the monitoring circuit and the current shouldn't be passed through. It would be below 2.5 volts and lithium ions shouldn't be drained below this 2.5 volts.

If it's a single cell device and the pin is electrically isolated it's just an open circuit the current cannot pass through.
