    Sorry! Noon question here.

    Couldn't find an answer online or maybe I'm just not looking hard enough!

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B0...+indicator&dpPl=1&dpID=41M9VdFtC0L&ref=plSrch

    Hopefully purchasing that product but how does one connect a battery into it? I fear my lipo battery is damaged and is not charging. When I search or look at photos people just plug into it, but I just had a positive and ground from the battery! Sorry if this is a stupid question.

    Cheers.

    Check out this youtube video:
    He shows how to test single cell LiPos. However, according to the video, you need at least two batteries for it to work. Take a look. He also shows how to test a single battery with a multimeter.

    i had a look at the youtube video, after watchin it and others i began to wonder if i could use a balance charger? it is justa battery like this i have here -

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2500mAh-3...193968?hash=item1c6269ef30:g:9PEAAOSwUuFWxWap

    (not that exact one but one just like it)

    a balance charger such as this one -

    and it should tell me everything i need to know right?
    i suspect the battery is broken due to to much use as doesnt seem to charge but from what a hear and see, a lot of people can repair the battery using these if you are careful,

    thanks for the responce,
    what do you think?
