I ran my truck a little today...(red light was on) with the LvD off. Had my 2s lipo on the truck...I started slowing down a little so I stopped it...then I noticed LvD was off...Not sure how it got turned off...Guess I should check....I hooked the battery up to my EZ peak plus and it was reading 3.3 volts per cell....Am I ok here?
i think your ok. If my memory is right i think it can go down to 3.2 v per cell
I would get a lipo balancer tool to read all 3 voltages for 2 cells. Just to make sure.
Not sure how or why it was off...It was on last time I ran the truck...How will I know if I toasted my battery?
When the smoke detector goes off... JK, just check for some puffing or bulges in the pack, and when it's done charging, see if the cells balanced out.Not sure how or why it was off...It was on last time I ran the truck...How will I know if I toasted my battery?
3v/cell is the safe minimum... at 3.3 you were close but probably fine as long as the ESC did not voltage dip too far below the 3v/cell threshold. Just monitor your pack during its next charge... which should be very soon so the pack does not self discharge too low to be safely used.
Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
I am storage charging it now...Taking over an hour to reach storage voltage...But they are balancing ok...Guess it's a lesson learned...Check to see if it's in LvD before u run...
Also the button on the vxl esc gets stuck easily. Causing it to turn the esc on/off or putting it in training mode or in ur case most likely turned off lvc. wd40 in the button and press it until it loosens up.
You are lucky dude that could have been a bummer for your pocket.....peace
Famous last words...watch this!!!!
