Charging, Use, and Storage of the Plus Battery

LiPo batteries require very specific handling &  misuse is not covered under the warranty. To avoid damaging your battery, or having to replace your battery prematurely, it’s important to follow all of the instructions here and in the other articles in this help center

1. Always charge to full INCLUDING the first charge out of the box, even if you only used it a little the time before.

The last stage of the charge cycle balances the voltage between the internal cells in the battery pack. Using it in an imbalanced state, will cause it to swell and permanently damage the battery. See more here: Why recharge the battery for each use?

Note: The maximum capacity (16.8v) will naturally decline over time - once it declines to 80% (13.44v) it has reached the end of its lifespan and needs to be replaced. Do not leave the battery plugged into the charger after it reaches a full charge

2. Always stop to recharge the battery when voltage drops to13v - avoid over-discharging which will damage the battery

3. Do not leave the battery plugged into the drive unit when not in use - it will continue to drain the battery

4. Do not leave the battery fully charged or discharged (13v) longer than 2 days without using it.

5. If the battery will sit longer than 2 days unused - only charge to nominal voltage (14.8v) and then fully charge it just before use.

6. Always store at  14.8 -15.2v see: Storing the LiPo Battery

7. Always charge and store the battery inside a charging bag



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).
