View Full Version : Is this battery still safe to use?
05-04-2012, 05:20 PM
This is the battery from my ez-start for my slayer. While I was out driving my slayer I jumped to avoid having my slayer hit me in the shins (Not the best way to figure out your brake needs to be adjusted...:lol:) and it fell out of my pocket sending the ez start straight on to the concrete and the battery hit the ground really hard.:$#!!: I'm not sure if just the casing is damaged, or if it will cause it to short out or not work. Any help on if it's still usable?:confused:http://i1263.photobucket.com/albums/ii638/Wolfslash16/TraxxasSlayer015.jpghttp://i1263.photobucket.com/albums/ii638/Wolfslash16/TraxxasSlayer016-1.jpg

It's probably only the casing. You could peel it back and make sure everything is still connected good and then wrap the cap back on with electrical tape.

i would say its still good to use, but check the batteries to make sure their is no damage to any of the cells. if there is no dents or anything then it will be fine.
