Lithium batteries, e.g. Lithium Ion (Li) and Lithium Polymer (LiPo) batteries (commonly referred to by the catch-all phrase "lipo batteries") are what make the current generation of high performance RC Planes, Drones, Cars, Boats, and other vehicles possible. However, their high power and high capacities means taking proper care and caution when using and charging them.
Lithium batteries are intended to be used with compatible radio controlled (R/C) models only. Any damage caused by misuse or modifications will void your warranty and can cause serious injury.
ALWAYS FOLLOW READ AND FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURER'S INSTRUCTIONS
FOR SAFE USE AND CHARGING!

General Safety Guidelines
Caution – Before Charging:
Charging LiPo Batteries
**In order to discharge packs in series, the charged voltage of both packs must be within 0.01V for the same cell count pack.
C-rating is a standard which defines a battery's operating current based on its capacity. 1C is the current it takes to approximately fully discharge a battery in 1 hour, and is simply defined by dropping the "h" in the pack's capacity (e.g. 1C for a 1000mAh LiPo battery is 1000mA, or 1A). The examples below demonstrate how to figure out the proper charging current for different packs:
Some LiPo chargers on the market may contain insufficient or incorrect information regarding the battery packs they are designed for. It is the user’s responsibility to assure the charger you purchased is compatible with the batteries you have purchases. Do not attempt to bypass the chargers internal systems..
