I had one pack that came back after this treatment with one cell still stubbornly dead. So I just cut it off, re-soldered the lead and I now have a useable 3 cell pack instead of 4 cells!

Re: LIPO Battery Care

I have about 10 charges on this pack. After one use this summer, I forgot to charge it. I have no idea how low it was. About 3 months later, I put it on the charger (accucel 6) and into storage mode.
This is what it looked like when it was done.
It was a Turnigy lipo, (with the sky blue wrapper) 5000mah. Electrics are cool, but just as much work, just a different kind, than nitro or gas, and after a few duds like this, no cheaper =)
