    My stock nimh batteries had moisture for pretty much the entire time I used them which was for about a year. I would try to blow it out with an air compressor, but if that does not work I would not be too worried about it.
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.

    Have you run it in any water?

    3000 mAh. Would be wiser to charge it at 3A instead of 4A. When it starts to get warm during charging, disconnect it.

    As for water, if you're playing in snow or water, since the thing is not completely sealed, some moisture will get under the plastic wrapping. You can put the battery in a container with rice to try to dry it out (doesn't work well when I try it), or just use a blow dryer. Leaving it wet allows the internal metal contacts to rust or can potentially short things, so best to let it dry out before charging.
