Default LiPo! LiPo!

From some NiMh VS LiPo forum I read,

The Lipo must keep in 40% of its total charge capacity to ensure life expectancy. It could last for very long time and takes many cycles without degrading in a well control environment.

Over Charge or Over Discharge LiPo overheats the Lipo cell, is also dangerous. The Heat damages the cell and shorten its Life Expectancy greatly. Many LiPo reaches it's point which are no longer safe to use. !!It can Really Blow your RC into pieces!! Those Extreme Heats it can produce can even catch metal into fire. check out youtube for lipo.

Lipo cell are fragile, it needs protection in High G Environment. An internal shortage of a damaged cell could cause Heat and destroy your RC car completely!

We are still in the drak age of LiPo. Higher output cell, the more active chemistry, the high risk. Be a Wise Careful person when using LiPo.

That statement was true in it's entirety about 7 years ago.

Believe it or not, all batteries are affected by Depth-of-discharge. Mostly this term is talked about in Lead-Acid/Gell batteries but applies to all forms of batteries.

It is expected that just using the battery will result in a decrease in performance in the future. How hard you use the battery will determine how much of a decease. Batteries do not get better with age.

I have been running the same two (2 because of time between races) Orion Carbon 3200s for the last 17 months (2 charges per week) and they are great race packs.

The only reason you would need more than one battery per car is if you have a very short amount of time between races. If you have 45 min to an hour, one pack should be fine

as long as you put it RIGHT on the charger after your race. The problem is that for the last 500 mah or so it takes forever because of the cc/cv algorithm. I race primarily offroad and never have had that short of time between races...
