    Lipo battery life span

    Hi, I've had a Lipo 4s 5000mah 50c gensacearespammers pack for about 2 years. It ran great for the first year and a half, but I suddenly noticed some problems. The pack seems to be lasting much less long than it was lasting before. It's also getting hot. After my run yesterday the motor was at 90f, esc...

    Bummer news, SPC Batteries is closing

    SPC made some of the best LiPo batteries for the price and I noticed today on their website they've posted a notice saying they are closing. Hate to see them go. "SPC will be soon closing its doors. New restrictive regulations, along with significant changes in our personal lives brought us to...

    How do you choose LIPO number of cells.

    I understand what MAH means, my question is as I am looking at LIPOs preferably 2S I see a various amount of number of cells what does that mean. I am looking for my Axial EXO and don't want to buy the wrong batteries.

    Lipo short?

    How do I figure out if my lipo has a short, cause when I was charging one last night each cell read between 4.27v-4.29v.

    Hey, guys I was about to order another lipo charger since my barely used onyx 235 got up and walked away, seriously I've turned my house upside down, looked in every packing box, and still no charger.....I might have thrown it out by accident. This the brand I'm looking into, since it's free...

    How to convert a PC PSU to power your LiPo charger

    My latest video! its a remake of one of my really early videos on how to convert a PC power supply so you can use it to power your lipo chargers. The old video had poor video and audio quality and the walkthrough itself isnt as coherent as this time around :) Parts you will need: 10W 10Ohm...

    Ok guys maybe a dumb question here but I'm still learning this lipo stuff. Anyhow I just bought a new 8000mah 2s lipo. My question is my charger only goes to 5000 mah charge setting. Even though I am seeing the full 7.4volt charge am I getting my mah capacity or is there something else I should...

    lipo charger info needed.

    does any one know of a good quality quad charger that will cycle lipos? Also, I've heard that the Hitec X4 will cycle lipos but I can't seem to confirm this. Does anyone have an X4 that can confirm?

    LiPo Charger Power Calculators

    Revolectrix has a whole host of power calculators for not only their LiPo chargers but also a generic one as well. It can be a really handy tool to have so I thought Id share. Theyve also added a new one for the Dual PL8 charger (I totally want one!)

    Lipo Damage

    Ok my son crashed his rustler brushless at high speed, he snapped the chassis in two! He also damaged the lipo, the front of it is crushed. Is it still ok to use this battery in my other vehicles?
