    Reviving a LiPo Battery

    Apparently I left my balancer plugged into one of my LiPo batteries and it drew down the charge to the point where the Duratrax charger cannot recognize it any more. Is there any why to revive this battery??? Please HELP!!!

    If it has gone under 3.00 per cell unfortunatly you might as well bin it.or if not try chaging it a little without the balance con it wont hurt it good luck.

    If it's a 3S, connect a 12v 1A power supply to it directly (to the power connector) until the cells reach 3.0v...

    For 2S use a 6v 1A power supply and do the same... Always use a LiPo fire bag to avoid problems, but I never had one...

    You can also charge it in NiMh mode until the voltage is high enough for the LiPo setting to work, this has worked for me a few times. Whatever you do just be careful.
