Default Micro T Stock Charger

Hey Guys just got the Micro T for Christmas. By mistake I left the car on over night and now the battery will not take a charge. I am new to the RC world so I dont have any other charger then the one that came with it. How do I go about getting a charge back in the battery without having to buy a better charger?? thanks in advance for your help[]

well, I think you wrecked the battery. I dont know much about that, and I dont have experience with the mini-t stock charger, but I bet its not a peak charger or anything, and you left it in too long and ruined to pack. Everybody has told me that you should never leave the pack in a charger like that, but they never told me what happens if you do.[sm=confused_smile.gif]

Just get the stock battery, its like $10.

Then dont forget to turn off the switch.

Or do like me and just unplug the battery every time your done. Thats what most people who have been around for awhile do anyway.

If the batteries not being used always unplug it. They dis-charge slowly even when turned off if they are connected.
