My TP 3C 2100mah ProLite LiPo took some damage. One of the cells in the back corner got mushed--not real bad, mostly just a dent. The foil is not torn or anything. I just want to be sure I am still good to charge and keep it going.

LiPo's give me the creeps every time I charge them.

Thanks

Sniff it real good. If you smell anything resembling a sweet Krispy Kreme donut smell, it's toast.

Charge it in a ceramic mug or container of some sort, just in case.

Gimbal is right,

Also, take note that the damaged cell will age faster than the others and may cause unbalance over time. Dent and pressure point accelerate the formation of salt within the cell.

I don't smell anything so I am going to charge it and watch it closely
If I ever figure out why I can't save script or upload pics into my gallery I'll put a pic up. Ever since RRv2 I can't save or load anything in my gallery. Mark has told me how to try and fix it but it still won't work.

Thanks for the help----LiPo's scare the crap out of me.
