    Question charging time and any warnings?

    Hello again, it has been a really long time since I used my car/batteries.

    Is there anything I should be concerned about since I haven't charged the batteries in probably a year or so?

    I have two SMC5000maH batteries with an Onyx150 charger if that helps.

    I just remember many people saying there are dangers with LIPOs and leaving them uncharged for periods of time. Mine haven't blown up during storage so thats a good thing.

    Thanks in advance.

    looking forward to getting my car up and running again vroom vroom!

    Check if the batteries are swollen, don't charge if they are. If they are not swollen try to balance charge them (the charger won't charge them if a cell is too low) and use normal precautions ( no flammable material near, do not charge unattended,....)

    Best to contact SMC about their batteries.
