Hey all, been awhile

We were pregnant with twins that came a month early. I have 6 zippy batteries. 3 are fully charged and 3 had hit the lipo low limit on my Esc. They have been sitting in that state since the end of November when the twins came. Now they are sleeping all night and I have a little free time. What should I do with these batts? Since non were placed in storage mode, do I even chance charging the lows and discharging the highs? I do not have any swelling yet..........Or not take any chances and replace them??

Thanks

I would just charge them and use them as normal. After a few flights they will show you if they're good or trash.

As said, charge them and try them out.
They may be fine.
If your charger doesn't like the the ones that hit low limit, charge them for a little while as NiCad.
That will raise the voltage then switch back to LiPo.

Thanks, TheWoodCrafter
