RE: LiPo battery safety:
Well I'm on 95% now .so far it's been roughly 45 min from weak battery screen .wich seems suprisingly quick to me .but iv never had lipos before .
Meybe I miss guessed the time I put it on charge but it was pretty much just before I posted at 5:31 pm
At this rate it will be charged by the time I get some cars in and go home

Ha 99% by the time I finished that post

RE: LiPo battery safety:
That's strange that the HCigar comes with a 1300mah battery but the chip is set to a 900mah
I just heard you should set it to 14.43wh?
Edit-
Found this
Change to 14.43wh. If you go to the battery section of escribe it has a watt hour calculator. I typed in 1300mah 11.1v and it calculated to 14.43wh. So it appears as if Hcigar forgot to set it from the factory.

RE: LiPo battery safety:
I wondered about this on mine but seeing as the general consensus on the battery claims in the vtbox is that there exaggerated wasnt sure whether or not to mess

RE: LiPo battery safety:
If you have used a decent charger to "storage charge" you should be good for about a year.

I've some racing batteries which I put into storage at the end of last season (Jan 2015) which I have just started using again and they took 2 cycles to wake up properly (or maybe my car setup was so bad it just "felt" slow as it was handling like a dog).

However I'd recommend a charge / discharge / store charge cycle quarterly if you are using a generic charger (nitecore etc)
