    2S LiPo issue

    Hey all, I have had my Stampede 4x4 VXL for less then a week and it came with the 2S 4000mah LiPo that I am having issues with. I use a Venom charger with this LiPo a long with the Venom battery that I have which has no issues. This battery has had 4 cycles through it.

    The issue I am having is once the battery gets to about 3.8-3.9V it will turn on the red light on my VXL system and I will only get roughly 50% power, the other battery I have will go all the way down to 3.4 or so before this happens. This battery has been below 3.8 before all the way down to 3.4-3.5 or so. Could there be something wrong with this battery for it to do this?

    I believe that is like a warning that the batt is getting low and it's about time to stop running and switch, but don't quote me on this being true.

    I know thats what it means. Its just odd how I can only run for 10-15 minutes before it goes into the LVC mode and its around 3.8V instead of 3.4 or so on my other battery.

    There are a few things that can trigger a false LVD:
    1) Faulty ESC
    2) Poor quality pack
    3) Too low of a C rating
    4) Cold
    5) Pack that has not been broken in

    1 is ruled out due to the other pack working fine... the rest could still be the cause of the issue.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    It has been cold, I'm thinking it could have something to do with the break in or lack of.
