    Throw it out?

    So I've got a 3 cell lipo that reads 3.44v total and 2.73v on cell 1, 0.76 on cell 2, and 0.00 on cell 3. It's shot right? Anything salvageable?

    I'm pretty sure that's considered a "dead cell". Only thing salvageable is the connector but at the same time since they are cheap it's more trouble to remove the solder than it is to just buy a new one.

    If this is a Traxxas lipo you need to hold on to it and call Traxxas to find out getting it covered under the warranty. If it is not a Traxxas lipo then you need to contact whoever the manufacturer is, the lipo is toast and should not be charged or used again.

    Please keep in mind this forum is for support of Traxxas lipos only.
