ManiaX Lipo Battery Safety Instruction and User Manuals
NOTE: You must read and understand these safety instructions and warnings before using or charging your Lithium polymer batteries.
Before the First Charge
1) Make a visual inspection of the pack; and checking for any damaged leads, connectors, broken/cracked shrink covering, puffiness or other irregularities.
2) Before installing or changing the connector, check the voltage of the pack using a digital voltmeter. All new packs ship at approximately 3.80V to 3.90V per cell.
1) Never charge batteries unattended.
2) Charge in an isolated area, away from flammable materials.
3) Let the battery cool down to ambient temperature before charging.
4) Charge each battery pack individually. Over-charging of one or the other battery may occur resulting in fire.
5) When selecting the cell count or voltage for charging purposes, select the cell count and voltage as it appears on the battery label. Selecting a cell count or voltage other than the one printed on the label may result in over-charging and fire. As a safety precaution, please confirm that the information printed on the battery is correct.
6) You must check the pack voltage after each flight before re-charging. Do not attempt to charge any pack if the unloaded individual cell voltages are less than 3.3V.
For example: Do not charge a 2-cell packs if below 6.6V
Do not charge a 3 cell pack if below 9.9V
First Few Flights
Maniax Power usually recommends no more than 3-5C average discharge for breaking in new packs. Also be extremely careful not to over-discharge new packs (Packs should NEVER be over-discharged at any time,but over-discharging on the first flight will ruin the battery permanently before you are able to enjoy it.)
Charge: 32 to 113 degrees F
Discharge:32 to 140 degrees F
1) Always allow a battery to cool down to ambient temperature before re-charging.
2) During discharge and handling of batteries, do not exceed 160 degrees F.
1) Store batteries at room temperature between 40 and 70 degrees F for best results.
2) If storing longer than one week; batteries must be stored at 3.80V/cell to 3.90V/cell (approximately 50% charged).
3) Do not expose battery packs to direct sunlight (heat) for extended periods.
4) When transporting or temporarily storing in a vehicle, temperature range s should be greater than 20 degrees F but no more than 150 degrees F.
5) Storing Lipo batteries at temperatures greater than 170 degrees F for extended periods of time (more than 2 hours) may cause damage to battery and possible fire.
Caring for Batteries
1) Only charge a LiPo battery with a good quality Lithium-polymer charger. A poor quality charger can be dangerous.
2) Set voltage and current correctly (failure to do so can cause fire).
3) Please check pack voltage after the first charge.
For example; a 2 Cell battery should measure 8.4V (8.30 to 8.44), a 3 cell battery should measure 12.6V (12.45 to12.66).
4) Do not discharge a battery to a level below 3.3V per cell under load. Discharging below 3.3V per cell can deteriorate battery performance.
Be sure to set your ESC for the proper cut off voltage (6.6V cut-off for 2S packs, 9.9V cut-off for 3S packs, etc).
5) Use caution to avoid puncture of the battery. Puncturing a LiPo battery may cause a fire.
