Default Triton Jr problem

I just got a brand new Triton JR, and it refuses to charge my lipo's at anything more than a snail's pace. For example, I have a 3s, 2000mah pack on the charger right now, and, during the course of the charge, the charge rate has dropped from 2 amps, to a measly .1-.2 amps . It isn't the wattage, as the charger has a 63watt maximum output. Any ideas?

Looking at the manual - http://manuals.hobbico.com/gpm/gpmm3152-manual.pdf - I would guess that on page 15, you missed paragraphs 2 and 3 about setting the charger correctly for your battery. It thinks you're charging the default 350mAh battery size.
Other than that, the Triton chargers automatically lower the charge rate as the battery nears the capacity charge. This is to obtain the maximum charge by just "trickling" in the last little bit.
