the venom lipo's haven't had nearly the problems as thier old NIHM series, and i've heard the nihm's are decent too, so why don't you try and help instead bash a MFG and make somebody feel bad about asking for help....

power is intermitant. It either works fine or not at all. And don't bash venom. It's all I could afford. Brand bashing is not allowed on this site. It takes a charge just fine average about 3000-3600 mAh and that's at 5 amps. Balanced. It's defanitly a loose connection I just don't know if venom will cover it under their warrenty.

what is your LVC set at, it could be too high, and its getting tripped too early.... or a loose connection your best bet is to call venom to see if they'll replace it if you think its a MFG error, i can't say either way if it is they should replace it in my opinion they should...

is the loose connection in the connector itself?
or possible the connector on your ESC?

Default RE: venom 30c 5000 mAh problem

so I called venom today and they said it's covered under warrenty. It's just going to take a few days so I'm limited to just one battery. So I am going to say that when I called I was surprised to get help almost rigt away. So there customer service is awsome. Als the guy spoke englis very well. Def going to get more venom stuff. Thanks again for the help.
