    Were his batteries charging at the time? Or just spontaneously go off? Any sign of damage to them before they went? always nervous about LiPos.

  • they were charging at the time as far as i can remember. it was about 5 years or so ago...
    the guy chaging them was an experienced RC operator as at the time he was Craig Dreschers mechanic, it was Craigs gear that got burned!

    personally i';m not frightened of LiPo';s. been using them for years without issue but since i';ve recently bought 11 or so soft cased LiPo';s i';m thinking it would be a good idea to add a little flameproof barrier between me & them as i generally store them indoors  :whistling:

    i won';t put them in the cupboard under the stairs as i have around 7 gallons of 25% Nitro fuel in there already  :blink :whistling:

  • Today Mr Parcelforce brought a HK Euro order for LiPos. I';d used Euro as UK OOS for a while.

    3 of 3 Cell 2200mAh 60C 120C surge.

    As usual each had packaging carefully opened, visual inspection and check inc wire security at plugs. Then, straight onto cell checker.

    1 pack found to have Cell 2 at zero volts.

    New territory for me after many many OK orders, a Warranty Claim!  (requesting replacement not refund)

    Received batteries @ 15:45, Claim with photos 16:20, Inspected, Authorised, and Passed for Settlement within 30 minutes.

    I';ll keep you informed, but so far nothing adverse to say.

    So, I';d fully expected a further exchange over this, even though I had indicated how I wanted it resolved, but not so. Further Email arrived here stating very sorry for issues and replacement sent.

    So far so good then.

  • So, the replacement battery from HK for the one with a 0v cell 2 (see my previous posts if not aware) arrived last week.  And.......... it had one cell (No3) down at 2.2v    :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :thumbdown:

    MMM, what now, do I claim, or do I try inform they have a batch issue and maybe agree to try recover it back OK,

    SO, I tried to contact via their RMA but kept getting a website error message about no post record found, claim not processed. Tried three times, the last even shutting PC down and coming back in, same error, it just would not action the form entry.

    Or so I thought.  :confused:

    Today I get a claim authorised post  with a note "sorry you have had so much trouble".   :shrug:

    Assuming the error messages were terminal and I';d get no further, over the weekend I slowly recovered the battery cell back to over 3.5v on NIMH trickle charge (outdoors and watching it), then put on the balancer (again outside) till it balanced, then charged it the rest of the way. It ended this balanced within 2mV.  Since then I have hovered a quad with it down to 3.7v and then balance charged it normally at 1C, and its sitting on my desk charged and in balance to 3mV, so I suppose this one has been recovered.

    SO, I await events with interest.......................  :popcorn: :popcorn:    .....................even if you all don';t!   :rofl:

  • my lad uses one for flyalongs.

    small, compact, light and surprisingly good signal pickup and screen clarity.

    slap a clover or pagoda on it though, definitely does make a difference

  • More a case of what the postman DID NOT bring......waiting for my Micro skyhunter to arrive and its well late, BG keep telling me to wait a few more days........ordered it 31 days back but they are telling me its within the 15-20 working day slot

  • More a case of what the postman DID NOT bring......waiting for my Micro skyhunter to arrive and its well late, BG keep telling me to wait a few more days........ordered it 31 days back but they are telling me its within the 15-20 working day slot

    After a lot of orders which were OK, I recently had trouble with BG. I';d ordered a battery, then a week later ordered another.

    Right at the end of the second one';s expected time slot it arrived, but the first one, by now overdue, was still AWOL.  After several "please wait a few more days", I challenged their process since I';d paid for Insurance and the tracking was definitely iffy with an extra 10 days delayed by China Post before it was allegedly forwarded (I think they lost it in China!).

    It never did arrive, unlike one way back that finally got to me two months overdue with the label blackened and part unreadable looking like it had been skidding on a running belt for some considerable time.

    The pleasures of international ordering...............................

    At that they refunded me.

    Recently I have had packages arrive from them by:-

    Royal Mail from Sweden Post
    Royal Mail from Thailand
    MyHermes from Manchester (Yes, really, a Banggood order!)

    LiPo always seem to take beyond their expected service times
