I have a brand new lipo 11,1 volt battery that I left connected overnight by mistake. When I hook up to my Triton-2, it says voltage is too low & will not allow me to charge. Is there anything I can do?? Battery has been used twice

Be awfull carefull with it. Maybe do it outside this time but i've done it before. Put the Triton on nicad setting with a 500 MA charge rate and watch the voltage carefully till it shows 10 volts, then hook it back up to the lipo setting. If you feel uncomfortable about it, don't try it.

Thanks a lot for the tip. I charged to 9volts & tried pack & it charged perfectly.

I won't make that mistake again.

Thanks again

It's too late now I know, but I'd suggest you use the C/10 charge rate for recovering a lipo. (So only 220ma if its a 2200mah battery etc).

While its best to avoid getting into this situation, supposedly a very slow charge back to 3.3V per cell or so does less additional damage. (Based on sources I've read rather than much personal experience).

As you don't say what brand of battery it is I will say this. If it's a standard LiPo then they usually don't fair well after a super discharge so plan on it being toast. If it's an Air Thunder or Kong Power battery then just recharge it and use it as it will be perfectly fine. If it is one of the latter brands then just use a lower setting on the charger to get it up to a normal discharge state and then reset the charger to the proper settings to do a normal charge.
