observed for at least 15 minutes. It should also be removed from service entirely. To help prevent shorts, it is best to store and transport the battery in a non-conductive (and preferably fire-proof) container and/or to cover the connectors with a non-conductive material. United States Electronics and engines requiring inspection or repair should be shipped to the following address:
3) When temporarily storing or transporting the battery, the temperature range should be from approximately 40–120 degrees Fahrenheit for the best
results. Do not store the battery in a car or direct sunlight whenever possible. If stored in a hot car, the battery can be damaged or even catch fire if the
temperature inside the car becomes too hot.
4) Store the battery at room temperature and approximately 1/2 charge for best results. A Li-Po cell is approximately 50% charged when it is at 3.8V.
The approximate 1/2 charge voltage for a 2S (7.4V nominal) battery is 7.6V The approximate 1/2 charge voltage for a 5S (18.5V nominal) battery is 19.0V The approximate 1/2 charge voltage for a 3S (11.1V nominal) battery is 11.4V The approximate 1/2 charge voltage for a 6S (22.2V nominal) battery is 22.8V
All other Products requiring warranty inspection or repair should be shipped to the following address:
The approximate 1/2 charge voltage for a 4S (14.8V nominal) battery is 15.2V
Before the First Charge
