    lipo question

    this is probly a stupid lipo question as yet im a noob to lipos, will a lipo battery go dead if i leave it plugged in overnight, i charged my lipo and ran it for probly 5minutes last night(cuz it was getting dark out) then i was in a hurry so i put it away without unplugging the battery, everything was off, i go and play with it this morning and it went into the slow blinking red light which means the lipo is dead and goes into 50% throttle, which it did, i was just wondering it was dead. as i only have 1 lipo and its charging right now

    It probably is dead I have done the same thing and had no issues. If it is charging on a safe charger you will be fine

    discharge, balance and recharge. You should always unplug your truck because it will drain down over time.

    +1 on Jay! Never leave a Lipo plugged in! That is VERY dangerous! I am happy nothing bad happened to you. Please don't make that a habit.
