right im going to water dip it on 7.2v but i dont have a charger capable of doing this so is it alright to power it straight from the battery?

and have i got to make sure the connections arent in the water?

you can entirely submerge it.

Put a bit of detergent in the water too

Antnee, What they are saying is something U will discover when U dip Ur motor. Everything gets wet but there is very little chance of receiving a shock. Even if U only put half of the can in the water, the motor will pull the water up through it. (just like as if it were pulling cooling air through it.)
