    I just don't think that at 3.85 you're at 50% of power. I think you're under that.

    Here's what I did:

    2. Charged it...

    The "charge from empty" is a better test than the "charge from 3.8v" test, IMHO. At least that gives you some idea of what size of battery you have, even if the battery isn't fully discharged (so in...

    Storage *voltage* is 3.8-3.85v. That's what a battery should be stored at.

    The MAH that you can put into a battery that's storage charged is typically more...

    One just needs to buy the part 6533 and put it into your Traxxas model and (as long as you have a TQI radio with either dock or Bluetooth, plus the corresponding smartphone) you're in business.
