Yesterday I ran my emaxx and forgot to unplug the batteries and today I try to charge them and the charger just says error and my equinox balancer doesn't do anything.And one of the lipos are brand new and there not puffed at all.Did my esc drain my lipos to the point of no return?
Depends on how low they were when you stopped
Do you have a voltmeter? Take a reading if above 6 volts you might be ok

if the voltage is way to low then the pack would have a short life time and has the potential to turn nasty.
If it's just a little bit low there is a way to bring them back up, but will be at your own risk.
The longer it's been drained, the more damage has been done.
Google "dead lipo and nimh charge"
Google search trumps Wiki. Refer to user guide.
Thanks guys for all the help you guys saved Me about $100 I tried putting it in nimh mode but it kept on saying error so I put it on a low 2s lipo and it brang it up to 9.80v.
keep an eye on the pack when running and after running for any puffing or misreading of cells but other than that glad you got it working and usable
