So after the other days excitement I seriously started to check the rest of my batteries and this is what I have found so far

I should have checked the 450  batteries before doing the video seems both 1800 and 2200 bats are puffed up badly so they are leaving me also filed for a divorce from them  :b0230:


Also checked the both the 250s and they are puffed also

I am going to go broke buying replacement batts for sure :headslap:

I was going to ask about the brand but I can see that they are Sky and Turnigy, so nothing special there.

It is more the condition of the battery and not related to the brand - an obvious observation I guess -- but you can eliminate the part about a cheap battery that blew because it was cheap -- if you know what I mean. 

Your bats are good brand names, so no worries there.


looking at your vid of your batts and comparing it with mine - I'm f'ed up. I think I have maybe 4 batts that are worth saving...  :headslap:

I recommend setting them out about 25-30 yards and popping them with a .22.  Make sure they are above sand or some other non flamable area where they won't do any damage but provide great entertainment value.

I checked mine this past weekend and found all to be in good shape, no puff. I'm glad of that, don't have to buy new ones.  :t2030: :t2030: :t2030:

9mm is a good choice, but with the cost of .22 right now, I might as well pop off a few 7.62x39s for about the same money  :b0206:
