Hey guys, I'm about 99% sure I'm going to get lipos for my Summit here in the next month, so I have a few questions. I'm not sure I understand fully how to care for and use lipos, so I'll just say what I know, and if I'm missing somthing, or somthing inncorrect, PLEASE let me know.
Never drain them past the low voltage, always use LVD.
If you don't use them for at least 3 days, put them in storage mode, at 3.8 volts to prevent damage.
Never over charge them, or short them. (DUH!)
If it puffs up, stop using it.
You can charge them at much higher charge rates. (6amps?)
Always balence them while charging.
Ok, now here's some questions.
I have the Traxxas EZ Peak Plus, and the lipos I'm going to get are the SPC 2s 8200mah lipos. Can I charge them both at the same time (using the dual lipo charger thingy) at 6amps? Also, can I balance charge them at the same time? If I'm done using my Summit after it hits LVD, do I need to charge the batterys as soon as I can, or can I wait a day or so to charge them and not hurt them? If I only charge it partly or a little bit, is it safe to leave them for a day or so with a "random" charge on it? Anything I'm missing? I want to know EVERYTHING there is to taking care of lipos. Thanks!
