Technical FAQ

How do I safely dispose of dead or damaged Lipo packs?
If possible, discharge the pack down to zero voltage using a motor, light bulb, etc. Next gently puncture the outer cases of the cells and let it sit in saltwater overnight. Remove 24 hours later, wrap it up in a plastic bag and toss in the trash.
How can I balance the cells in an older Lipo pack that doesn't have a separate balance connector?
The short answer is that you can't. We do not recommend attempting to add a balancing / charging yourself.
