WARNING ! : Lithium Ion Polymer batteries (hereinafter referred to as battery (s) and / or Lipo) are high-energy rechargeable accumulators with very high performance and require special attention during use and recharging / discharging.

Improper or incorrect use can cause defects or loss of premature functionality and in extreme cases can lead to fire and explosion of cells.

RESPONSIBILITY DISCHARGE; Since Crazy Cat Hobby by De Luca Raffaele as a seller of lithium polymer batteries can not oversee how to use and use, download and recharge them, Crazy Cat Hobby De Luca Raffaele assumes no responsibility for any damage caused to people and / or things from the use of the same. The use of Lipo batteries automatically implies the express acceptance of full and total assumption of responsibility by the Customer for any kind of damage to persons and / or things caused or deriving directly or indirectly from the use of batteries to Polymers of Lithium and the express declaration not to hold in any way responsible for Crazy Cat Hobby by De Luca Raffaele, whether they are successors or heirs for any accidents and / or damages caused to things, animals or people and the tacit confirmation of having read and understood all the Instructions for Use and SAFETY RULES shown below before using them. In the event that the Customer does not intend to assume full and total responsibility, he is OBLIGED to return to De Luca Raffaele's Crazy Cat Hobby, within 7 days. from receipt, at its own expense, the product purchased unused and complete with packaging, by giving prior notice to our e-mail address assistenza@crazycathobby.it, upon receipt, Crazy Cat Hobby of De Luca Raffaele, will provide after verification of product integrity , to the total reimbursement of the purchased product net of transport costs.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE AND SAFETY: • Do not place the battery in direct contact with sunlight and with sources of heat or excessive cold. Do not heat the battery, do not throw it into a fire, do not put it in contact with microwave generators. • Do not compress, deform or puncture the battery; protect it from possible knocks or accidental impact • Never place the battery charger connected to the battery on flammable or electrically conductive surfaces. Do not use or charge batteries near flammable materials or in the presence of flammable gases. • Do not leave the battery unattended during use or during the charging / discharging phases always supervise the batteries during charging. • Do not charge batteries that are very hot, let them cool down to room temperature first • Only cells of the same capacity and of the same brand can be loaded together • Check the correct polarity of the batteries and avoid short circuits • Pay attention when using packs battery with a high number of cells. Check the correct insulation to avoid the risk of lightning current • Do not immerse the battery in water or other liquids • Do not invert the polarity during charging and / or short-circuit the batteries • Do not weld directly on the battery. • Do not tamper with or open the battery • Do not charge the batteries above 4.2 Volt per cell (cells soldered in series) • Do not discharge the batteries below 3.2 Volts per cell (cells soldered in series ) • Recharge batteries only with Lipo-specific and programmable battery chargers, Never connect batteries directly to the power outlet • Do not use the battery in places with high static energy • Such actions can cause damage to the battery with risk of explosion or fire • Keep the battery out of the reach of children • In the event of electrolyte leakage, keep it away from fire, since it is highly flammable • Keep the electrolyte away from the eyes; if it comes into contact with the eyes, immediately wash the affected area with plenty of clear water and seek medical attention later • The electrolyte can also be removed from clothing or other objects with plenty of water.

CHARGING PROCEDURE: Lipo batteries are charged with the constant voltage - constant current procedure. During the first charging phase, the battery voltage rises slowly up to a maximum value of about 4.1 V / cell. During this phase, the battery charger maintains the charging current at the pre-established value. This phase lasts about 30 minutes in the case of a low battery with a charging current of 1C. At the same time the battery capacity is recharged at 80%. When the final charging voltage of 4.2 Volt / cell is reached, the charging current decreases and only the voltage is kept constant, since the voltage difference between the battery and charger it becomes always smaller. It takes another 30-35 minutes to load the rest of the capacity. When the lower current level of 5-10% of the current value is reached, the charger stops the charging procedure. For a charge value of 1C this implies an overall duration of the process of at least 60 min. for discharged batteries. Charging current: 1C (charge value), means the value of capacity = charge current

EXAMPLE: 3000 mAh cell;

Charging current 1C = 3000mAh / 1000 x 1 = 3.00 A

Charging current 2C = 3000mAh / 1000 x 2 = 6.00 A



We recommend to recharge at 1C, always using the balance of the cells using the battery charger specifically dedicated to charge / discharge of Lipo batteries that work according to the charging procedure shown above, this will extend the life of your batteries

CONNECTOR WELDING: due to the high sensitivity to the temperature of the cells due to the electrolyte heating, in the welding phase of the connectors to the power cables it is advisable to use professional high power and temperature welders by placing the connector to be welded on an element not dissipating the heat (wooden base) having the foresight to carry out a pre-soldering of the connector and of the cable before inserting the cable insisting for a few seconds in the welding in order not to overheat the external cells to which the cables are connected power. An excessive and prolonged heating (5-10 seconds) can cause a gasification start up of the invisible electrolyte which with the subsequent discharges is degenerative and causes a visible swelling of the external cells making the battery pack unusable in a few cycles.

PARALLEL BATTERIES: charging parallel-connected battery packs may present problems, since in this case the total current is distributed on the individual cells according to their internal voltage and resistance value, it is advisable to disconnect and load the packs individually or by connecting them in series.

BATTERIES IN SERIES AND BALANCE: The individual cells reach during the discharge phase conditions of charge and voltage different from each other due to very small differences in internal resistance and temperatures reached and this is completely physiological and can not be eliminated. Therefore, the final total charge voltage is not equally distributed in the individual cells; consequently, cells with a higher charge risk being overloaded during the subsequent discharge phase. Welded cells in series can be loaded together only if the voltages of the single cells do not differ from each other for values ​​higher than 0.1 Volt. If the difference is greater than 0.1 Volt, it is necessary to balance the voltage of all the cells through the use of the dedicated "balancer" tools that allow to automatically balance all the cells on the same voltage value, this practice in addition to maintaining in perfect working order your battery, contributes to a large extent to extend the life of the battery pack. It is strongly recommended to always carry out the balancing with the appropriate charger with integrated "balancer" at each battery charge, this procedure will require about 5 -10 minutes more to complete the charge of the 100% battery pack, depending on the type of charger used. For the measurement of the voltage of the individual cells, the Lipo batteries are equipped with a balancing connector connected to each individual cell by means of a multiple cable with a terminal connector of various types. The black cable (Pin1) represents the negative pole of the first cell, the last red cable the positive pole. Each successive contact represents the relative positive / negative pole of the following cell. This arrangement makes it possible to detect and balance the voltage of the individual cells during the recharge process phase.

Improper or incorrect use can cause defects or loss of premature functionality and in extreme cases can lead to fire and explosion of cells.
