    Is this Lipo safe to use?

    So my Slash took a bit of a tumble and i had forgotten to secure the Lipo...ended up with this.



    Is it safe to use it?

    I would at least wrap it up with some electrical tape. It's a soft pack so as long as the internal cells aren't damaged physically you should be ok.

    like the post above, you should tape it well, if water gets into the battery you could have problems

    For the price we pay for traxxas batteries they should at least make a hard case option and with higher C ratings. Please. Cause I can't play with my rustler 4x4 without taking a tumble and battery looking like bent or wrapping is coming undone. Super annoying.

    I think this lipo is not safe to use.

    The thread is about a year old.

    I've not personally had any issues with this sort of damage to a LiPo. The only time I've ever had a LiPo fail as a result of a crash was when the pack got punctured. In most cases a LiPo is much more likely to be damaged due to over-discharge, etc.

    With that said, if you run into issues like this, take it as a sign to use a better battery-hold down. Adding some velcro strips, etc, never hurts.
