    RE: LiPo Batteries????

    over charged
    allowed to go too low in voltage
    drawing too many amps
    etc.

    could be any of those.

    Boeing -

    A puffed battery is a damaged battery, so think carefully before continuing to use them. If all of your lipos are puffing after a period of time, you are almost certainly abusing them in one of the ways mentioned in the previous post.
