Hey again, I have a really dumb question about lipos. Are all traxxas lipos waterproof? If not, who makes a high capacity battery that's waterproof and fits in the stampede 4x4?
Go Traxxas, Team Associated, and Losi!
Traxxas LiPos are not described as "waterproof."
Alt-248 on the number pad = °
The Lipo battery itself is sealed ... If air ever gets to the lithium polymer, it will ignite. So all Lipos are waterproof, but the wires connecting to the battery cells could corrode over time with repeated exposure to water. Options to completely seal the battery include temporary options such as placing inside a balloon or condom. permanent solutions include plastidip vs tape and shoe goo.
Yeah I have run my Traxxas 5000mah 25c 3S pack underwater with no problems.

I taped the outside of my battery cases and used liquid electrical tape to coat and seal the point where the wires go into the cases. Having said that, I've gotten Lipo and NiMH dunked (flipped truck into pond, radio box on boat untaped and partially flooded the radio box (receiver was in a balloon)) and the batteries still charge and work just fine.
