    Is this Lipo safe to use?

    Hey everyone, I just pulled the battery pack out of my Granite and I've noticed the front is a little deformed. Is this pack safe to use? The damage is quite minimal, or at least it seems to be the case.

    Battery connector question

    Hello everyone, I was wondering about the connectors on some of the batteries I'd like to get. The question is; if a battery comes with pre supplied 4mm bullet to deans cables, can I just get similar cables with ec3s on the ends? Or will it cause trouble. Thanks for any advice in advance
