Re: Rc Thread

I don't have any experience with lipos as I have only used nimh batteries in my rcs so far but I just found this that may be helpful.


What I would try first is to give the battery a full charge and check the voltage of the pack with a voltmeter. Supposedly if any of the Lipo cells are below 3 volts the cell is considered bad and the pack can be considered unbalanced.

you ran it too low, or forgot to unplug it when you turned the truck off im guessing. toss the battery and get a new one. Even if you do manage to bring it back to life it'll never be the same. If you want to be sure the charger is okay just plug another lipo into it, one you know is good, if it charges fine, theres your answer.
