How to Get the Most From Your Li-Polymer Packs

How to Get the Most From Your Li-Polymer Packs

  • How to Get the Most From Your Li-Polymer Packs Cycle your packs when you first get them. Cycle them at least 3 times at low rates. Charge at .5C and discharge at 2C

 

  • Try not to discharge your packs beyond 80% of their capacity. For example try to use only 1600mAh of a 2000mAh pack. This will keep the temperature down and prolong the life of your pack. Do not fly your plane until the low voltage cut-off kicks in.

 

  • Balance your packs after every flight. An out of balance pack and a perfectly balanced pack look exactly alike. Charging an out of balance pack one time with a conventional serial charger will result in overcharging some of your cells and will do permanent damage. This will shorten the life of the pack quicker than anything.

 

  • Whenever possible, charge your packs at the slowest rate you can. Of course, Lipos should never be charged unattended, so choose the slowest rate that will still allow you to keep an eye on the process. All battery types respond better to a slow charge.
