Hey all, so this is my first blaster, just got it today.
Before using it I did a bit of reading on the battery side of things and realised it was a little more involved than I had thought.
My main concern was the fact that LiPo batteries can be damaged if they are over-discharged. How are we supposed to know how much battery power is left when we’re using it? when we’re done, how are we supposed to know if we’ve discharged to a safe level?
This review claims that the ARP9 does have in-built low voltage protection, but I cannot find anywhere else supporting that claim?
Is it safe to use the stock battery or should I wait until I can get a turnigy?
I had no idea these LiPo batteries could be this dangerous and some people going so far as to store them in fire-proof bags etc? is that common? how many of you guys do that?
I went and bought a SkyMax B6 LiPo charger to help with the charging and safely discharging side of things, but I’m still not confident and will probably get a bag too. It’s a shame this battery tech is so volatile, was hoping to just unpack the blaster, make some gels, charge the battery and start using.
