dead Lipo battery?

Basically I have zero experience with lipos but I just bought my first one, a 2s. First thing I connected it to my simple lipo charger but it would not charge it. I then connected it to my friends accucell and it gave a reading of 3.85 and the rest were zero. So appearantly one of the cells is dead, however when I measure the voltage with a multimeter between the middle connector and the two around it, it gives 3.78V and 3.78/3.79V. Now I have read they should be perfectly equal but I am confused why the charger gives zero rather then something like 3.78V.

Hexapod queries

Hi everyone,

I have been thinking of building a remote controlled hexapod from scratch including the code. However having never built anything like it and having basically no experience with arduino, I have a number of querys I would like your opinions on.
