Charge a lipo with a charger that is not made for lipos.
Never charge over the rate suggested by the
manufacturer. If possible charge at a lower rate it will
add life to your pack. Lipos like constant voltage and
current while charging so avoid voltage or current
spikes while charging. If you use your car battery to
charge while at the field. Do not start you car while
Please see our disclaimer, guarantee, and a few
Wiring diagram for our standard
balance connector can be found
here and are compatible with the
balance chargers on this page with the common Align
/ Life / Lion Parallel Charge Board
allows you to charge up to 6 packs at the same time. Use on 2-6 cell
packs. Charge board uses Deans plugs and JST-XH balance connector.
Note - Packs should be of same
voltage, chemistry, and capacity. Do not plug in packs of different
voltage even if they are the same chemistry. If you are unsure of
how to use this item or you are new to lipos please pass on this
product. Miss use most likely will lead to fire, or at least dead

NOT use lipo batteries if you can not or will not follow all Lipo
Lithium Polymer batteries were designed for mobile
devices and not for R/C use. Although some manufactures now see the
R/C market as a good viable market. In general Lithium polymer
technology was not originally intended for high rate use as in R/C
applications. Therefore, the technology of Lithium Polymer batteries
in radio-controlled models is to be considered experimental (not
just ours all of them). Our cells come from a factory whom makes
cells specifically for R/C use. But please follow all guidelines
and precautions that are set for lithium polymer batteries. The
R/C hobby is fun, it can be a daily escape, relaxing, and offer
extreme thrills. The last thing we want is someone to be injured, or
suffer property damage from their hobby.
We suggest you follow AMA safety precautions with
any Lipo battery. Since we cannot guarantee customers will follow
the proper safety precautions and use an appropriate well
functioning charger with the correct settings, therefore, Mile High
RC, it's agents, distributors, employees, associates, etc.. assume
no responsibility for the use of Lithium Polymer battery products by
our customers. Your purchase and use of this product means you
accept our terms and you are fully responsible for any consequences
of your use. That being said we do guarantee or packs to be free
from defects of parts and or faulty workmanship.
So far with the ESL cells the only cause of pack
failure has been shorting while installing a connector, or not
having the pack connected properly (exposed wires). Please learn
from past customers & personal experience. Do not expose the wires
on both leads at the same time. Trim one wire attach to connector,
cover, then work on the second lead. If you decide to use bullet
type connectors (not recommended) we suggest making one lead shorter
then the other. This limits the chance of +/- coming in contact. If
you need any help or would like suggestions feel free to drop us a
