What is the charging voltage for LiPo?

LiPo batteries are fully charged when they reach 4.2v/cell, and their minimum safe charge, as we will discuss in detail later, is 3.0v/cell. 3.7v is pretty much in the middle, and that is the nominal charge of the cell.

What does 35 C mean on LiPo battery?

The C rating for a LiPo battery, quite simply, refers to the capacity of energy the battery can safely discharge, represented as a multiple of its overall capacity. A battery that has a higher C rating delivers more energy, and that means higher performance.

How many volts should a 3S LiPo cell have?

11.1 volts
Thus, the 3S LiPo battery features a nominal voltage of 11.1 volts (rarely 10.8 volts), a maximum charging voltage of 12.6 volts, and a cutoff voltage of around 9 volts.

What voltage is a LiPo dead?

The voltage starts at 4.2 maximum and quickly drops down to about 3.7V for the majority of the battery life. Once you hit 3.4V the battery is dead and at 3.0V the cutoff circuitry disconnects the battery (more on that later.

How many amps should I charge my 5000mAh LiPo?

5000 can charge at 5 Amps. basically the mah/1000 is the charging current.

What voltage should I charge my 4S LiPo?

~4.2 volts
LiPo 4S Batteries Features and Specifications Each cell features a nominal voltage of 3.6-3.7 volts (mostly 3.7 volts), a maximum charging voltage of ~4.2 volts, and a cutoff voltage around 3.2 volts.

What is the difference between 30C and 50C lipo?

The 50C battery would be capable of delivering more current than 30C one, if needed. However, if nothing else in your power system has changed, it will draw the same current as before. You have some extra current capability, which you are not using, so you will not see any difference in flying or charging times.

What is the lowest safe voltage for LiPo?


How long does it take to charge a 3s 5000mAh LiPo?

At 1C (5 amps) that would take 30 minutes +. Due to inefficiencies and the fact that chargers taper off, it might be more like 40-50 minutes. Even longer if the battery arrived less than half charged.

How do you bring a dead LiPo battery back to life?

A dead LiPo battery. A LiPo balance charger….With these tools, It’s actually pretty easy to recover these batteries.

  1. Connect the main plug of your LiPo battery to your NiMH charger and start charging at the lowest current possible.
  2. After a minute or two your battery should recover to about 3.3 volts per cell.
