Lipo batteries are a popular choice within the world of radio controlled models and Airsoft sports. Why is this? Primarily because a Lipo battery is light weight. They can be manufactured into different shapes and dimensions. This means that Lipo batteries take up less space but offer a lot of power, relative to the battery size.
In the realm of radio controlled model vehicles, the power to weight ratio is important to keep performance levels high. In the world of Airsoft, the adaptability of the packs for Lipo batteries means that they are designed to fit into the crane stocks of the Airsoft Electric Guns.
Lipo batteries have proven their versatility, but they do require careful treatment. To keep them in good working order, reduce any risks associated with Lipo, and to maximise their lifespan, there are a few guidelines to recognise.
How to Get the Most Out of Your Lipo Batteries
There is no doubt that the introduction of the Lipo battery has had a big impact on radio controlled models and Airsoft products. However, the key to getting the most out of your lipo batteries is to take care of them.
Break the battery in gently. Start by using the battery for a shorter length of time initially. Avoid flying, driving, or sailing your radio-controlled model at full throttle. Allow the battery to cool down. Do not over discharge these batteries or you risk cell damage.
Store Lipo batteries safely, they can catch fire if punctured and they can be sensitive to temperature.
Charge your Lipo batteries with care. Use a charger which is intended for this type of battery. Do not over charge and do not charge hot batteries.
These are guidelines and are not conclusive in ensuring the safety and battery life of your Lipo products.
