    Can I plug batteries with different mah in my Kraton V4?

    Hi, I have 2 Voltz 3s batteries with 3600 mah and just bought 2 Voltz 3s batteries with 5000mah. I expected to be able to fit the 2 5000mah together in my Kraton but they are too high unfortunately. Can I combine a 3600mah and a 5000mah together without damaging the batteries or the Kraton...

    Typhon Any Cheap/Chinese LiPo's?

    Hi, I recently bought a Typhon 3s, which wasn't in stock anymore a few days later. I got my money back, everything is fine and i bought a 6s Typhon v3. I also ordered two 3s lipo's (ordered those in combination with the 3s Typhon). Now I want two other 3s LiPo's but I don't want to spend a lot...

    Lectron lipos

    Has anybody used lectron lipos? If so are they good, or bad? I'm new to this. Its seems like there are bad reviews about every lipo out there. I'm thinking about purchasing a lectron 6s 6500 100c lipo. I don't have money for a maxamps or I would get that.

    Battery checker question

    I wanted to get a lipo battery checker and mount it and use it while I run my truck. I'll be running a 4s pack and 2 3s. While I'm running the two 3s packs would I need 2 checkers?

    Dying battery?

    Over the last few runs I have noticed that my one battery (PowerHobby Pro 3S 5200mah 75C) may have been slightly beaten up due to the battery tray on my v2 Kraton being too small for them. Now it only seems to charge to 12.1 volts and the balance in cells is off by a bit. I've used the pack once...

    ISDT Q6 finally set up

    I wanted this to end up as a travel charger for our ridiculous amount of camping trips we do every year. I think it turned out pretty decent. I used a parts bin from work (I hope they don't miss it) and vented for the power supply. It packs up nice, and I can use it for a few batteries in...

    How to store a LiPo battery

    What type of cases do you use??? I saw one that holds a few batteries. Then thought if one went. There goes all your batteries. Also do these things spontaneously go or just during charging and use? If they're in storage voltage, is there a worry???

    Kraton Will these batteries fit

    Will two SMC 11.1v 7400mAh 149amp 90c batteries fit the Kraton battery tray? I just ordered my Kraton and would like to order either two 3s batteries or one 6s battery to go with it. I think these batteries stacked on top of each other may be a few mm taller than the battery tray

    Hello all. I received my SMC 4s 7400mah lipo yesterday and I would appreciate any advice on lipos. The charge that the battery was shipped at was 3.86, 3.85, 3.84 and 3.85. I balanced charged it on a 4 button charger. So here are my questions: 1. When fully charged each cell should be at max...

    Is my battery junk?

    I have a 4s lipo that isn't acting right. I set my charger to 5 amps, it's a 5200mah, but it will only charge at 3 amps. When I storage charge it, default setting is 1 amp and is not adjustable, it only takes .3 amps. With my 2- 3s batteries or my 2- 2s batteries it goes up to 5 amps until it's...

    Lipo batteries

    I am new to the lipo batteries and I have a question. If I run 2 lipo batteries in series does the c-rating and mah add up? Like if I were to run 2-2s batteries that are 35c and 5000mah will all of that multiply times 2?
