  • Major King:

    Thanks much for the information. Excellent on battery care.

  • nick carnevalino:

    STOP! – you said the battery can explode if charged when in a trash compacter – i think you dont understand why lipos explode , it has zero to do with charge and everything to do with the fact that lithium reacts with water splitting the O and H2 and the heat of that reaction causes the H2 and O to catch fire and explode (this is why lithium is stored in oil – the moisture in the air will cause it to catch fire) – you also talked about condensation inside the batt after removing from the fridge and how it's "unhealthy" for the battery , it is not unhealthy it's explosive!!! as you seem to have zero knowledge of how exactly LiPos work , the info here is antidotical at best.

  • Cyber React:

    Is it safe to charge libo battery when it's charging fully and then storage charge it after fully charge.

  • matt Alford:

    Us lithium ion battery guys have full control over our batteries too. We build our own battery packs. Install our own BMS. I know lipo guys call them smart lipo lol. But it's just BMS finally making it to the RC hobby.

  • Joey Sosa:

  • panayiotis konstantos:

    I have one complain about lipo chargers. I have 3 lipo chargers and none of them balance charge the batteries in exact same voltage every cell. All my batteries are out of balance a lot, and i always use balance charging and storage mode. How to balance every cell in exact same voltage ? We buy lipo chargers to balance charge the batteries and none of them do the job right.

  • Frank Moyer:

    I bought an RC boat on a whim. Nobody told me the Damn battery would be this much trouble.
    I've used the boat a total of about five minutes, then the battery went low. When I put it on a charger, it puffed up and wouldn't charge.
    The Damn shop sold me a new battery but I left it plugged into the boat. Now it won't charge.

  • WorldPowerLabs:

    Good information, but the Teletubbies music is distracting.
