I just discharged the 2000mah Losi pack after a full day of practice/racing. I pulled it off the charger with 2063mah and after discharge it still had 1211. I had at least 65 minutes of actual run time plus the time used in the pits adjust settings etc. It powered 2 Hitec 7950s and a transponder for 25 minutes of that. Pretty impressed with it's capacity.

Rule 1, Dont discharge Lipos.. especially all the way.
Rule 2, After a charge, and the pack's voltage settles down, learn what a fully charged/ half charged, and a low charged lipo rx pack voltages should be at.
Rule 3, Dont discharge Lipos..
Rule 4, Dont warm lipos
Rule 5, Dont overcharge/high rate charge these little RX packs.
Rule 6, Dont discharge Lipos.

I discharged to see what was left in the pack. I suppose I should have just charged it back up to see what was left but I didnt think about it at the time. There was 1211mah left in the pack after yesterdays run so I used less than have the capacity (it usually peaks around 2150-2200). It was charged at 1amp and discharged at .70; no noticeable heat on the charge or discharge cycle.

As long as the cells didn't drop below 3.2v each you should be okay. Just never discharge a lipo. If you want to check how much mah you used, just charge it.

I didnt happen to check the cutoff voltage, I just used the discharge cycle on the Hyperion charger for 2s LiPO 2000mah; hopefully it was smarter than I was (LiPO rookie).

I can only hope so....double check what you have the discharge voltage set at.

I know the defaults are usually pretty conservative with that charger. It charged fine and it hasnt puffed at all so I'm not worried about if; if the car catches fire we'll know why
