So been running my Stampede VXL for a couple of weeks. I have a decent charger, X1 Tech and a couple Traxxas NiMH batteries which have been decent. So after reading the number of suggestions for LiPo I finally took the jump in but seem to have some issues.
I have a 7.4v 5000mAh 25c 37Wh LiPo.
I set the charger for 5a and 7.4v (2S) on the charger setting and went to about 2500. The charger said it was full and after I turned on LVD and put in the truck and would turn on for a few secs then shut off. I assume because it is not a full, but I am not sure what to do now. I don't have a multimeter yet, not sure if I should try and charge again or discharge?
Another question, should I always use 5a for anything I do with my charger, storage , balance, discharge?
