2S LiPo packs offer a great way to get lots of extra run-time out of your new RC vehicle when compared to NiMH batteries that come included. Or, you may be looking for a competition pack that you can race with but don’t want to shell out the big bucks for the ‘name-brand’ packs.
Let’s start with some basics first:
- Be sure that your ESC has Lipo Mode or Low Voltage Detection enabled. This will keep the vehicle from over discharging the LiPo which will damage it. If for some reason your ESC doesn’t have LiPo Detection built in, you can always get the LiPo Alarm. It’s simple. Plug it in to your balance plug on the battery. Press the button to set the alarm voltage (3.4V-3.6V is a good idea). Then it will set off the alarm when a cell in the battery reaches the voltage threshold so you’ll know to stop using your vehicle. We’ll list the Alarm below.
- Only charge your LiPo battery with a LiPo compatible charger. If you don’t, you’ll over charge the battery and it’ll catch fire! It’s a great idea to Charge and Store in LiPo Safe Bags too.
- Lastly, be sure that the LiPo is the correct size for your battery tray. Simply measure your battery tray and compare it to the size specs of the battery you’re interested in.
