parts have started to arrive for my new Jet Boat build
also, I thought I'd ask... After about 6 months of torturing my LIPOs in the tear into, 2 have burst (cheaper ones, granted)!!
The 2200mah Nano-Tech takes about 1800mah most of the time now, although I have setup cut off power on my ESC, so I might not be running them as low as I used to... I don't get the "FULL" sign anymore when balance charging them, although they still take the same amount of mAh...
1) Would the lower amount of mah charged up, be due to not using quite as much when running?
2) Should I assume that the damage to the cheaper batteries was done a long time ago? when I ran my boat without cutoff? (one actually burst before I set the cut-off voltage up)
3) Is it my charger that is crap, and I need to go get a good one? (I'm running an Extreme-Racing R-605, pretty much the same as a Turnigy Accucel-6)
4) Is the battery problem, on cheaper ones, because I've got a massive 120amp ESC, which feeds the motor pretty much as many amps as it can take... And so the discharge C rating is impeeding the flow of electricity, thus damaging the battery (same as chargin a 1C battery at 10C, just the other way aroung)??
Thanks for your input
