Bad lipo


I recently purchased a 2 cell sky lipo 5000mah hardcase for my new slash and I can't get the lipo to work properly. When I first received the lipo I checked the cells and they were not abnormal at all. (I don't remember the exact number for each cell) I cut off the red plug that it came with and soldered on a deans plug and charged the lipo up with my thunder charger. I went to the rc track to run my truck and the truck will not go. As soon as I pull the trigger the truck acts like the esc is at low-voltage cut off. The truck just crawls. Both cells are at 4.20 but the battery acts like it is dead. I tried to cycle the battery a few times with my charger but didn't help at all. I plugged in a airplane lipo I use for my planes and the truck works fine. I think I have a bad lipo. Is it possible to return it or exchange it for another?

Here is my order number:


Thank you .
