So I upgraded to lipo today and have a question. I set up my onyx 235 to charge my new venom 5000mah 2s, 20c and according to the charger LCD it charged to about 2500 mah.... Is that expected with a new battery or did I do something wrong?
i was about to post the same question about the lipo i just got
They come charged at a storage charge not empty. I think 3.5v or 3.8 ( cant remember exactly)already

okay, i was thinking it was like my NiMh they take a full charge off the back.
do you full charge lipos before you store them?
Lipos should be stored at 3.85v / cell (50%) when not in use

on my lipo charger theres a setting that i set when the charger will cut off at, i charge my spc lipo at 5 amps and it cuts off at 6000 mah because its a 6000 mah lipo, so check your mah cutoff on your charger.

Thanks guys, after the first charge the battery is taking around 5100 mahs every time I charge it. What kind of runtime can I expect from it normally? It's a venom 2s 500 mah,20c. What do you guys usually get out of similar batteries?

You need to contact the vendor or manufacturer you got this equipment from Traxxas does not allow this type of tech support for other companies products on this forum.

I apologize for my error. I didn't realize that I was asking for tech support for non traxxas products, just wanted to get input from experienced lipo users about what to expect from these batteries.
