Sounds like it....

1. got wet
2. sat for to long and went under its cut off voltage
3. is now a paper weight

Sory to hear your battery is dead espically since they cost so much. If your storing any battery you need to charge them up once in awhile or they will die.

LiPo's need to be stored with a partial (30%) charge. Chargers such as the FMA Cellpro 4 will automatically set the right level for you.

Don't leave them stored a long, long time. Take them out and fly (boat, race, etc) now and then!
