Charging Home Original 11.1v battery

LiPo batteries require very specific handling &  misuse is not covered under warranty

  • Do not leave a fully charged battery sitting longer than 2 days without using it or discharging back to sitting/storage voltage 11.4v
  • Do not leave a discharged battery sitting longer than 2 days without charging it to the sitting/storage voltage 11.4v
  • Always start each session with a freshly, fully charged battery
    • Charge to full even if you only used it a little bit the time before
    • The final stage of the charging cycle balances the voltage in the internal cells; using it without fully charging/balancing the battery may permanently damage it. If you are not going to use it in the next two days - only charge to the sitting/storage voltage and then just before use, charge all the way to full. 👍
