LiPo Batteries Explained

I was about to write about maintaining LiPos when I stumbled up this very detailed and very thorough Instructable. It is so well written that I don’t need to explain anything!

Here are the batteries I currently have. Currently.

  1. Lumenier 2250mAh; 3S 3 Cell; 11.1 volts nominal; 35-70C discharge
    1. Charge Settings:
      1. 1 AMP Charge Rate
      2. 2 AMP for the field if I want to charge it faster (knowing that will reduce battery life)
    2. Discharge/Storage Settings:
      1. 1 AMP
  2. Turnigy Nano-Tech 1500mAh; 3S 3 Cell; 11.1 colts nomimal; 35-70C discharge
    1. Charge Settings:
      1. 1 AMP Charge Rate
      2. 2 AMP for the field if I want to charge it faster (knowing that will reduce battery life)
    2. Discharge/Storage Settings:
      1. 1 AMP

Here’s a good reference for possibly rescuing over discharged LiPos. BE CAREFUL. YOU CAN SET YOUR HOUSE ON FIRE.
