Another LiPo WaterProofing Thread.....
I know another thread.....
I have read some threads and am probably more confused now than before.
Here's what happened. I did some light snow bashing today running the stock LiPo battery and it ran great! Once the low voltage mode kicked in, I decided to change to my new venom 5500ma 3s 20C LiPo. It ran for a couple minutes then the Pede stopped. Noticed the speed controller blinking slow red. I knew the battery was fully charged from the night before, so I disconnected the battery and reconnected. Started running again, but only for a couple minutes. Disconnected and reconnected again, ran it pretty hard and it seemed to work fine. Ran it slow and the Pede stopped again. Slow red again. I had the Venom LiPo in my pocket while I was running the stock so I chalked it up the battery being cold. Charged both batteries and the Venom only took approx. 2450ma. I have the Onyx 245 that displays how much current the battery took. So I started thinking about the whole waterproofing thing.....
Here are my questions:
1) Is the stock battery waterproof and the Venom not?
2) Are all hard case batteries waterproof?
3) What are some good options for a waterproof LiPo?
Thanks in advance.
