I had somewhat asked around at the field, but no one has had this problem. Is there someone here that has wrecked a cell that was closest to the velcro & frame? I am wondering if it is chance, or shtty batteries.
Edit: Checking 'lipo vibration battery failure' doesn't come up with much.
The cell contacting the battery tray would have the most contact vibration I suppose. If you strapped the pack tightly down to the tray, maybe that would have more effect on the plates & structure of the cell. Who knows? I'll treat my new packs the same way I guess
Sounds like you might be able to salvage some 5s packs from the dead 6s ones, then. how many cycles did you get before they failed?
