When my lipo battery expands what should i do?
Stop using it ASAP and dispose of it in an appropriate manner.
Cause i was told today that if you pop it with a needle and then let the gas out an then tape it up again then it fixes it. Lol
Popping it sounds extremely dangerous and I am almost 100 percent sure you would not be able to use it afterwards.
I heard that if you pop it, the internal juices make excellent ice cream topping.
But in all seriousness, that is not a good sign. I would consult your friendly neighborhood google if I were you.
To me popping a lipo would be like popping your stomach because you have a stomach ache.
Ditch it - especially if the battery is below 6v for 7.4v battery or 9v for an 11.1v one. It's probably damaged.
I thought this thread would be helpful, so thats why i asked, thanks guys. Lipos expand when they are pushed past their amp limit, if a motor requires more amps than the lipo can supply it will expand. Or if you short the battery.
