    battery help

    ok i ordered 2 traxxas 2s 7600mah 25c batteries a month ago the first battery i charged was fine then plugged the second one in and it had a unbalanced volt of 35 so i let it charge worked fine then when recharging iit was 165 mv unbalanced so i emailed the guy i got it from and he said send it back so i did got the new one today popped it on the charger and it is 43mv unbalanced so my question is should i send this one back to?

    well it is not good, sometime after a few cycles they will balance out. so up to you what you want to do, including contacting the dealer.....gl2u

    i never knew i had to break in batteries.how do i do that?i usually charge them then just go use them.i got the one that was saying low voltage to charge after letting it sit for a day and the other had 105mv unbalanced but it also charged.just cant use them since we are getting hit with this hurricane.the batteries i am having problems with are the traxxas 7600mah 25c 2s batteries. the only problem i had with the 8200mah 2s spc batteries was a bad soldier job on the red wire

    I just take it easy for the first several runs, light pulls on the throttle & not just holding full throttle...
    The balance prob, that is way out of balance..Might have to cycle them a few time see i fit will balance back..
