So I was running my Bandit the other day and after going over this big jump and landing hard on the transmission, the gears started to click really bad. The spur was destroyed. Anyhow, I had just started to run, and my lipo was fully charged. What should I do with the lipo for the 2 weeks its going to be sitting while I wait for a new gear?
It is best to store your lipos half charged and if possible in the fridge..
(cold temperatures delay the chemical reactions inside the lipos therefore prolong their life)
if your charger has a discharge function use it to discharge it half way through..or run a charge/discharge cycle every couple of days..
2 weeks once in a while shouldnt matter too much to the overall life of your pack, its IR, or capacity.

Make it idiot-proof and along comes a better idiot
My charger doesn't have a storage function. Is there any other way to discharge a battery? I already have it in the fridge.
