So I discharged my 3s 2050 lipo by mistake( was really hot after the flight) and it took 2000ma charge. The pack looks fine and wondering by doing this 1 time if I just decreased the life of the battery?

Thanks

Yes, what was the voltage before you did the charge?

Always fly under the timer and set your ESC cutoff to high or 10v for 3s pack for safety. Try not to deplete below nominal voltage of 11.1v or 10.8v as absolute low. Couple of times of 90%+ discharging will not reduce the life drastically but just don't get into a habbit of doing that.

The voltage was at 10.1 volts. I always fly with a timer but was trying a new motor after using the battery for setup and it was already 300 to 400 ma discharged so did not realize it. It charged up fine with my TP1010 but it was HOT after dischaging that low.

Thanks

I think you lost about $1 worth of battery life for doing that.
