How long will the 14.8v Plus Battery last before recharge?Updated a year ago

A fully charged Plus battery is good for approximately 30 minutes of motor runtime. At this point, we recommend that you stop and recharge the battery.

NOTE: Other factors contribute to how quickly the battery discharges, including temperature (too hot or too cold); load; maximum capacity, this number declines over time and with use. once the maximum capacity reaches 80% (13.44v)  it is time to replace it.

It is not recommended to discharge the battery below the minimum 12.8v as this can permanently damage the battery.  

Always use a battery bag to charge the LiPo battery.

IMPORTANT: Fully charge before use every time to assure proper balance of all cells inside the battery. 

Note: you can stop charging before it reaches full and continue charging later - as long as you don't USE it until it has been fully charged. 

CAUTION: The battery should always be allowed to come to room-temperature before charging. Charging a hot or cold battery might delay charging or damage the battery. For best results, charge the battery at temperatures between 50º and 80ºF (10º-30ºC).
