Please be more caution and boji, or else you will regret. Dun take things for granted. It doesn't happens doesn't mean it will not happen.

walau, if i post vid of a burnt down house, bike accident or car accident or even airline crash then what should we do? That`s why the insurance thingy is taking place in our lives and we have to deal with that when things happened either bad or worst... Like the Kungfu Panda`s Shifu saying: Yesterday is history... Tomorrow is mystery... and Today`s a gift!

Hi Guys,

Need help again, i just received my newly ordered 4 x lipo packs 2800mah 2s 20c and do i need to fully charge it for the first time or i can start using it first till it is flat (tested with some juice inside)?

Cheers

i don't think lipo batteries have memory effects, but still, i think it would be good to fully charge them before using, remember to plug in a lipo monitor if your esc does not have lipo cut off... Smile

Hi bro,
Some esc comes with lipo cut off, means, it'll shut off when the battery voltage is low... This is to prevent over discharging the lipo battery... Which will damage the lipo and might be dangerous as well.
If the esc does not come with it, u can just get some battery monitor, which serves the same purpose, they will beep when the battery voltage is low, so that you will not over discharge the lipo..
You can get some simple ones from hobbyking... Very cheap..
Some better ones have voltage read outs too.
Please also use a charger suitable for lipos to charge the batteries... dont use a nimh charger to charge the lipos...

Just to add, do not store a fully charged lipo for too long. It will bloat by itself. If you are planning to store it, charge to 80%.

if planning to store lipos, best storage voltage is at 3.85V per cell(no matter wat capacity).. tat is usually not very achievable, so between 3.8 to 3.9V will do.. confirm can store for at least 2 yrs without bloating, and power still as good as new..

i had an experiment with lipos back in poly, so i learnt about this.. Very Happy trying out various brands and sizes, doing comparison.. and of course, the pleasure of seeing a 22.2V 6s explode.. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
