Lipo cable problem.

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi, when i went to charge my 2 cell lipo, one of the balance(blue one) cables came off. It has to be soldered on. i have two questions:

-is it safe to use still when this has happened?
-does anyone offer a service to resolder the balance cable on? i really don't feel comfortable doing it myself.

Oya it's a hard case yuntong lipo. Thanks. Ashton.

If you don't feel comfortable doing it take it to the hobby shop and see if they will help you out. I know around here they do that kind of stuff, sometimes for free sometimes not.

I took apart a 4 cell lipo with two dead cells awhile back and made it into a 2 cell pack. Made me a bit anxious doing it b/c I'm not used to working with these batts. But glasses and using common sense should prevent any problems if you choose to do it yourself. Mine worked excellent afterwards and has ever since.

If it were me, I'd just check the voltage on each cell before, probably during the middle, and after the charge. Make absotootley sure that neither of the cells goes below 3.0V (2.7V at the VERY minimum) or over 4.2V. You should be safe, just check them with a meter every so often and make sure they stay within those parameters. If they start going outside that range you could be headed for trouble and should balance them ASAP.

I would also take it to the shop, get them to help out with the soldering.

PS - I said "if it were me", as in, proceed with caution and at your own risk.
