Yes, I double checked this. Ended up charging it in NiMh mode to a level that the LiPo mode could recognise all 3 cells again, and charged it normally. Cell number 2 however loses .2 volts every 24 hours, whilst cells 1 and 3 lose .01 volts in the same period. warranty claims team are looking into it :)
This usually means that you have one "DEAD" cell. The "DEAD" cell is probably with a voltage of less then 3V. Use the NIMH (charging at 0.5A) option to charge the pack until is reaches 9V.. After that you can balance it as as Lipo Again. The charger should recognize the 3 cells now.
Even if it states that it can charge at 2C you will get a longer total life from it if you charge at a lower rate (like 1C) whenever possible. Balancing always takes longer than a standard charge but is better for your batteries.
Unfortunatly, only you can tell. It all depends on how much amperage you draw with your setup. The battery will supply 500 mAh or 1/2 amp for one hour. If your setup draws 2 amps, it will last about 15 minutes. If your motor draws 10 amps, the battery will supply about 3 minutes worth of power at that rate. It's not an exact thing... Batteries will vary in how much power they can supply depending one the amount required.
I hope this answers your question.
Hi, your Question is confusing. are u asking about the life of the battery or the usage of battery per charge? Life of battery depends on how you use and how you charge the battery. Deep discharge and over charging will lower the life of battery. per charge life depends on where u r using the battery and how much u r pulling the current out of battery per hr. more amp use=less the time of battery per charge. 11.1 v battery ment for tx can last for one month.
Hi,This AWESOME Battery you ask, lasts for about 7-15 minutes(TESTED BY ME)depending on your throttle management,for example,if you run full gas(Throttle) then you will likely be able to discharge the battery quickly,likewise to the opposite.Sometimes though it depends on how much you're drawing from the battery ,I recommend not more then 15 amps for this battery. Regards, MrRCFlyyer
have been fighting with a plane with no power turns out I got 4 of these batterys in sept and it turns out that 3 of them seem to not have any power they can only pull 6 amps for a few seconds then they start losing speed I have 2 older batterys and they go 6 amps for a couple minutes before fading I just recharged the 3 batterys (started at about 3.6 v/cell ) one only took 79 mh the other were about 180. I never knew about the register the warrenty sticker so what do I do, I will cycle them a bit but don't have much hope.
Could someone give me the exact dimensions of this battery, in particular the thickness: Is it 14mm or 16mm or something else? The spec gives both values and I have measured 13.6mm in the battery slot on my heli!
Super Akku, Leistung satt ! Fliege die Lipos in meiner Yak mit 80cm Spw. Regler: 12A YGE. Motor: Somodini Servos: D47 Prop: GWS 8x4.3 Erreiche Outdoor ca 12 min Flugzeit im 3d Flug. Die Zellen bleiben dabei vllig kalt. Nach mittlerweile ca 15 Zyklen macht der Akku keinerlei anstalten sich aufzublhen oder an Leistung zu verlieren.

3 thumbs up!
We love these LIPO batteries. They are great for flying the small 4-Channel 2.4Ghz Walkera CB180D helicopter.
We would recommend the Turnigy Brand as it stands for great value without compromising quality.
