    Battery problems

    When I charged my battery, I noticed a little fog on the inside. A couple of hours after I took it off the charger, it was still there and there were water drips (condensation) inside of the plastic casing. Is this normal? If not, what should I do?

    We’re you running in a wet or humid environment?

    That was a common problem for me when I drove my trucks in the winter; to help resolve it, I put small holes in the shrink wrap to serve as vents.

    Just keep him in the under of Sunlight for 1 or 2 hours, after you can put in your gadgets.

    I did the same as cooleocool. This is what I did to my summit batteries, and that truck loves the water.



    You don't have to make the holes as big as I did.

    Um so I accidentally left my battery plugged into my car and left it so it went completely dead. My charger won't recognise it at all!!��

    Cross your fingers and hope the ESC doesn't smoke when you put the new battery in. Happened to me with a Castle Monster.

    Unless you wired it wrong, there is no reason a new battery would fry your esc....

    The esc shorted internally because of me accidently leaving the battery connected. Connected the new battery and let the smoke out. Nothing wrong with the wiring Connected a new 1/8 Hobbywing no problems.
