Default Is My Battery Finished?

I left my mini 8 lipo in the car and forgot it turned on. Now when i try to charge i get a warning voltage too low. I checked the cells and both are at 0.08. Is it done or is there hope?

I did that once, the lipo wasn't puffed so I put it in nimh mode and charged it till 6v and put it on lipo mode after and it was fine used the lipo normally for a year until it puffed.

I did that with a couple of mine. I used my charger on NiMh mode at the lowest setting, like .3 amps for about 1 min and it brought my batteries back up enough to charge normally. They continue to charge and balance like they were before.

Search low voltage lipo charge on google and you will find several posts.

If it swells up you need to chuck it. And go get yourself a lipo sak or one of the Trinity battery lockers.
