    Battery no good anymore?

    Bought a 4000 mah 2s lightmax 30C hardcase lipo from HK for my Dark Impact. I've been using it with a SuperSimple ESC for the time being (I ordered, and now have a 100amp Car specific ESC), only 3 runs or so on the SS and none on the new esc. It charged fine and ran fine. Well a few days ago i hooked the battery up to the SS ESC and it sparked pretty bad when i connected the positive plug. I had only done it to test out the U-BEC. It was a pretty bad spark, even left a burn mark on the plug. This was just after giving the pack a full charge. Well I had been busy for the last few days so I didnt mess with RC stuff for a while. I finally got my new ESC in and soldered all the plugs to it, but when i hook the battery to it, i don't get any power, not even a little spark when i plug it in, like it usually does. I tried charging it, but it tells me theres a "connection break". The settings were all as they had been before when I charged it and the connection was good.

    Is it possible that I could have shorted the battery out when it sparked really bad that one time? The battery only has 3 runs on it. I cant tell if its bloated since its a hardcase. What could be wrong?

    Without checking it it's rather hard to tell for sure. It sounds like perhaps one of the main leads is open connection on the pack.
    and airplanes were in
