    Batts and charger?

    What are the batteries you guys run across all of your vehicles? Also, what charger do you guys use?

    I have not. But any battery has the potential for this. Depending on if damaged or punctured. How much it's abused if water gets into the packs , Over charging ect.

    New thing I learned last night is if pack is cold,(in frozen garage. And then charge it up. You end up over charging it. Can also over discharge it. If running out in snow. Can also store battery in freezer for super long term storage. But must warm it back up to room temp before charging.

    Lots of SMC’s here. Had a 6S puff a little. But I pushed it too hard in the speed runner.
