LiPo battery charging can be dangerous, so use a temperature sensor probe to give you extra peace of mind when charging them. The SkyRC temperature sensor comes with a convenient velcro strap to wrap around your battery pack to monitor the temperature while charging. If the temp exceeds your pre-set threshold it will terminate the charging, making the whole charging process so much safer. The sensor uses a standard 3-pin plug, compatible with most good balance chargers, not just SkyRc chargers.

1. Plug the battery to be charged into the charger. Select the correct battery chemistry type.
2. Plug the temperature sensor into the port of charger.
3. Secure the sensor to the battery pack using the supplied hook-and-loop strap. Ensure the area beneath the sensor is free of dirt and debris. If possible, avoid placing the sensor over a decal.

  • Temperature range: 0℃-80℃ 
  • Wire length: 45cm
  • Velcro length: 22cm
  • Usage: The SKYRC Temperature Sensor enables you to use on any SKYRC chargers equipped with temperature sensing

Included:

  • 1x SkyRC Temperature Sensor & Strap

LiPo Battery Charging Tips:

  • Always use a charger made to charge LiPo packs.
  • Double check that the settings for the lithium polymer charger are correct for the pack being charged. This includes the cell count, as well as the current settings. In general, most lithium polymer batteries should be charged to no more than 4.2 volts per cell or depleted to less than 3.0 volts per cell.
  • Ensure that charging leads are connected correctly. Reverse charging can lead to cell damage or a fire or explosion.
  • Always charge LiPo batteries on surfaces that won’t catch on fire such as cement, steel, ceramic or stone. Wooden tables and carpeted floors are not recommended charging surfaces.
  • Do not charge batteries near flammable products or liquids.
  • Never charge a LiPo battery while inside your model or other electronic device. If it catches fire it can lead to total destruction of the item it is being charged in.
  • LiPo batteries should be charged within a temperature range of 0C to 50C. Batteries charged outside this temperature range may experience leakage, heat generation or cell damage.
  • Never leave a charging lithium polymer battery pack unattended.
  • If unsure of the charge rating, never charge a lithium polymer battery pack at a rate over 1C (1 x the battery packs rated capacity).
  • Never charge a LiPo pack that has ballooned or swelled due to over / under charging or from a crash.
  • Never charge a lithium polymer battery pack that has been punctured or damaged in a crash.
  • Never, under any circumstances let the positive and negative battery leads touch each other. It can lead to cell ballooning, cell damage or fire or an explosion.
  • Have a fire extinguisher near the charging area or a large bucket of dry sand. Do not try to extinguish with water.
  • If you notice your LiPo battery pack is swelling, stop the charging process immediately, put the battery in a safe container and observe it for 15 minutes.
  • Always charge your Lipo battery packs in a Lipo charging safe bag.

LiPo Battery Handling & Storage Advice:

  • Keep LiPo battery packs out of reach of children.
  • Do not put battery packs in pockets or bags where they can short circuit.
  • Do not store or transport batteries where they can come into contact with sharp or metallic objects.
  • Do not store your LiPo pack in extreme temperatures below 0C or above 50C.
  • Always store your LiPo pack in a safe and non flammable container away from flammable objects. A LiPo Sack or metal / ceramic storage container is best.
  • The speed at which a LiPo battery ages during storage is based on both storage temperature and state of charge. For optimum battery life always store your LiPo’s partially charged at room temperature. This will maintain their performance levels over time and there’s no need to cycle them unless stored for periods longer than 3-6 months. .
  • Never store a RC LiPo in a hot car fully charged for an extended period of time, this will cause damage.
  • When storing batteries for extended periods, store at a half charged state.

Finally, always follow the manufacturer’s safety instructions and charging guidelines for lithium polymer battery packs. These are there for not only the longevity of the battery pack, but also your safety.
