hi every one,
So after a light session at the tracks, at the end of the day I noticed my LiPo swollen. never ran in water etc
I have always charged and stored it properly.
I had set the cut off voltage at 3.5v for my erbe.
Just wondering why did it swell up, would you still charge it and use it again or no more, I have had my traxxas 2s 25c 5000 MaH battery for over a year.

I have a pack that is slightly swelled and it still runs well. Just be careful with it. My pack is swelled because I ran it hard with a tekin pro4hd setup. I drive aggressively and didn't have any current limiting. I have also seen packs swell because they get damaged in a crash.
The fastest way around the track is on the track
Use your best judgement but know that charging a pack that has puffed is generally not advised. Doing so can end very badly. I would suggest contacting Traxxas and see about getting the lipo replaced rather than risking charging a lipo that has puffed.
