    lipos don't explode they burn, when pep do stupid things. Like charge a bad (puffed) battery.
    If you care for your batts & store them at 3.85v if not using them for a few days, not running the batts below 3.4v per cell & balance charge every time. They will last a long time. gl2u
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    When you say 3.85v for storing them is that for each cell? Or the total volts of the battery?
