    Lipo Question

    I charged my new 2s 5000 mah batteries last night and my charger brought them up to 8.4 not 7.4 like rated on the pack. I checked the charger setting and it is all right. Oh its a traxxas ezpeak plus 6amp. Is this right or should I be worried

    That's correct. 4.2 volts per cell is fully charged.

    don't store them fully charged either! once fully charged use within a day or so and store at around 3.85 volts per cell

    That's perfect finishing voltage. +1 what 50 says about not leaving them "full." Charge 'em, use 'em!
    Make it idiot-proof and along comes a better idiot
