I had a crash today with my joker and onecell is ruptured. The "foil" is ripped...is there a way to reseal that?

Or is it screwed now?

With earlier generations of lipo you would probably not need to ask the question because both battery and model would have been destroyed in an intense fire.

Even with the latest less flammable lipo cells, you should dispose of the battery ASAP.

Yesterday I disposed of one of my puffed lipos buy throwing it in the trash fire and and it responded by doing nothing. Very dissappointing.

Ahh, there is nothing like the sweet smell of a ruptured lipo.
Sorry Jag, its a gooner, dont even discharge it since it can catch fire during discharge.
TP recommends salt water method for those.

For fun I short-circuit an Align 3S lipo pack after a crash.

A big flame occurred. And very heavy smoke. I had to put some water on it as it lasted for more than 20 minutes!

Thanks..

I figured it was screwed but I just wanted tomake sure...too bad really...this was a new 22c evo 10s pack that I have about 7 cycles on...I guess I will try to remove the pooched cell and do something with the other 9 cells?

cells dead, but i would just send it back to flightpower. i think you can still get a hefty discount on a brand new pack for a trade-in
