    What Lipo is it?

    I have a SPC 2s2p 8000mah Lipo. I ran it in the snow w/o any worries.

    You can always use plastic dip if it isn't cased. I've got 4 packs that are dipped, one of them LiPo. Try a hardware store by the spray paint.

    One of my lipos aren't shrinkwrapped at all... Just some electrical tape. It's been ran in wet (puddles, not submerged) during every run. And no problems yet..

    Shrink them in plastic. Condoms are only 99.98% effective.

    Just be sure not to use the lubricated Magnums, they'll slip right off of your battery. JMO
