running in lipos

Posted 09-10-2011 at 02:30 AM by davidh

hi can some one tell me a little about lipos i blew up 2 lipos in my aero marine cat i run a 2280 lehner motor with a shultze 40 160 speedy with 2 5s 40c 5000mah lipo and a 250 pranther prop. one lipo had 3 runs and the other about six both had one cell blow out the side. do i need to run them in before giving the boat full speed or are the lipos ready to go full speed at new?

    ive now done some little reseach lipos to run in have 4 to 5 run with out pushing them to hard and only discharge them 50% each time to run in also on storage charge them to half charge. you can also zip lock them in zip bags and leave them in the fridge for longer storage time. does any of you keen boaters do this to your bats?

    Yes, all of the above.
    But, most importantly run an Eagletree data logger to really know whats going on in the boat as you run it.
    Also when you start out with a new setup run a smaller prop and work your way up slowly in prop sizes.
    The P250 sounds way too big.
