Salvage remaining lipo pack cells
« on: August 16, 2012, 02:55:57 PM »
Not sure if this has been asked here before... I've got a 6s lipo with one dead cell and was curious as to whether the one cell could be removed and salvage the remaining cells, either making a single 5s or a 2s and 3s packs. Has anyone here done this?

I have not tried this personally but I did some research and there is someone who is doing this with great success. I have a 3s pack that reads as being a 2s so I have thought about removing the 3rd cell as that is the one that does not show a reading.

Defiantly alot a of risks involved though, so I wouldn't recommend just anyone to try it, need to know what your doing. If you go ahead and try it let us know how it works out!
