    Lipo cell not reading

    So I have a 3S pack where the balance lead broke when I was out running, and made sparks when the balance wires touched. So I got a new balance wire end and cut off the old broken end and spliced it back up to the new end, but now when I connect it to the charger one of the cells reads 0. I...

    Granite Softcase lipo protection

    Hey everyone, I just upgraded my granite's slipper clutch and got my first 3S softcase lipo, only thing is; I'm quite worried about it getting dented or punctured. So the question is: how do you protect your softcase lipos? Is it okay to use bubble wrap/tape or something? Any ideas greatly...

    Safe temperatures for LiPo and Spektrum Smart high temp exception

    I am using the Bat-Safe to charge my LiPos (and to store some of them). Yesterday was quite hot the whole day and I was charging my Spektrum Smart LiPos (2x 5000 mAh, 100C, 3S, HC) inside the Bat-Safe. All went good, no errors whatsoever, they weren't hot when I plugged them off. I went to drift...

    WTB Senton 3S V3

    Hey there, Looking to expand my collection and get something a little smaller for the backyard. The Senton seems to fit the bill for this unless someone has a recommendation. Happy to cover shipping, but probably won’t make sense for a lot of people unless they have a business account for...

    SMC or Powerhobby???

    I recently decided to change which lipo batteries and chargers I use. I used to use venom and I'm not very impressed with the performance of these for the prices. I have narrowed it down to two brands, SMC and Powerhobby. Does anybody have experience with one or both and can share some pros or cons?

    Best Lipo Batteries/Brands???

    I have been using venom batteries for a long time now and I really do not like them. Their prices are really high for the performance I get out of them. I want to switch battery brands but I always change my mind about who to go with. I'm stuck between Power Hobby, gensacearespammers, SMC, and Spektrum...

    First time LIPO Issue, should I be worried?

    Can someone provide some guidance on an issue I'm having with a GENACE 3S Lipo. When I plug it into my new DOTA D6 it won't even read the 3rd cell. I already opened up the connection end softpack and took the readings right from the high gauge wire to eliminate a balance plug wire issue. is it...

    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

    ISDT Q8 not charging lipo’s, failing buck (self)test

    My ISDT Q8 doesn’t charge my LIPO (3S, different brands) anymore. The batteries are correctly recognised (showing number of cells, voltage etc). Once I start charging, it changes to the “charge” screen and the timer starts but nothing else happens. The A and mAh remain at zero, regardless of how...

    Just picked up a Kraton 8S, need battery recommendations!

    Hi fellas! So with the help of this forum, I made my decision between the Losi DBXL-E 2.0 and the Kraton 8S. My main deciding factors were the input from all of you and also the countless videos of watching DBXL's rolling/flipping over when at speed. Now, I still haven't ruled out...

    Battery Quality, Best Choice

    All my lipo batteries, both 2s and 3s, are venom batteries. I'm wondering if that's a good choice? They work great and have been durable but I'm wondering if I'm paying for the name so to speak? I jump my vehicles constantly and run them hard. Also does the c rating really matter? My 100c...

    Is it time to say goodbye...

    Granite 3s Lipo for EZrun Max10 with 3660 motor at 3200kV

    So, I recently upgraded to the EZrun Max10 with 3660 motor / 3200kV. I’m a little paranoid about buying a 3s battery now. The 2s battery I bought for the Arrma Granite Mega was 100C. That turned out to be way too high of a discharge rate and I quickly burned up the stock brushed motor -...
