I heard that if its within 4 days of a full moon,you run water over your lipo as you are charging it and you can safely charge at 300C.

attention:the above statement was sarcasm and not meant to be taken seriously.

Wow, I had no idea what I was getting started. The good news, I charged my battery at 1C and all seems well. Hopefully it didn't affect the life span. I have the noise maker active on my DX9 timer and shouldn't go down this road again. Thanks for all of the advice.

I have made a few devices that connect two identical packs to allow a full pack and depleted pack to transfer energy slowly until both packs are equalized at the same voltage. This is helpful at the end of a flying session to return both packs to storage voltage, as I often charge more packs than I can burn through.

Sometimes we can use purpose built devices for other needs...

I have successfully used these devices to restore an overly discharged pack. The high battery releases energy into the low pack without the interruptions of a chargers protection software. However, you really should be well educated on this topic because a fire can be initiated if executed with improperly matched components and batteries.

As always, I use a watt meter between packs and monitor them in person unless I place them in a fire proof device, never inside the house or garage.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

A LiPo down to "zero"?
They are a few Lipo out there that can go all the way down andcharge back with no Iissues.

Lightning Power was 1 of them
I believe common sense RC] have some too

These pack wasn't built for pilot to depleted them
but incase it happen you don't lose your money.

I seen one pilot Ruin his under power because he alway discharge his pack after
flight then charge them back up because that
the safe way to charge and and extending the life of the pack.

One day his luck ran out he ruin both pack that
when Tunder Power was expensive and no
warranty like what they have today.

that was a big lost.
