Yeah ... but it is not the batteries ... it is you!
Up this page ... warned you again!!!
Told you exactly how and why you are destroying LiPo!
You are right.
However I really do not believe I put more than 5 or six miles on them. The chain being too tight was like 10 or 12 miles considering wasted energy.
i admitted I was a battery abuser but the same pack NEW would probably have only read 3.7 volts or maybe 3.6 volts and would not have been damaged.I am a battery abuser and will never run SLA again so LIPO4 is my only option now.
Batteries were not meant to last forever and those 10.0 packs were not abused when I first got them. I ran them fully charged to Doug;s which is only 6 miles round trip and in series for 44 volts. It was my second time running them I think and The other 10.0 pack out in the dryer was defective and puffed NOT abused. THIS one however I abused but this was the first time.
Also the Quality of these cheap packs are in question. The packs Dan sent held up and are still running. I might make a parallel wire to run all 4 - 5S packs for 20 Ah. I got to lossen the chain a little though. I never charged without balancing but if I could it would save time. Charging each separate takes to much time. Balance charging once after every 3 bulk charges would be easier. Thanks.
PS. I got it on the charger at 1 amp. I am monitoring it. Perhaps I should fill a 5 gallon pail about 3/4 full of salt water and if it starts smoking unplug it from the charger and throw it in the pail.
