Damaged LiPo for Shipping

I got recently 2 damaged Zippy LiPo's from Hobbyking. HK send me free replacements so these are just sitting around.

Before I throw them away, maybe someone can use the actual cell's.

They are brand new LiPo's - each one has one damaged cell. See pictures for references.

1x Zippy 4S 5000mAh 25-35C
1x Turnigy 3S 1500mAh 20-30C

Asking for shipping and PP fees.. They both will fit in a priority small box .. so $6 is fair I think.

WARNING: THESE ARE DAMAGED LIPO'S - I DO NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY IF YOU BLOW YOURSELF UP BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW HOW LIPO'S WORK. YOU CAN'T JUST CHARGE THEM. YOU NEED TO OPEN THEM, RESOLDER THE INDIVIDUAL CELLS, ETC.

YOU NEED TO BE AN EXPERT AND HAVE THE REQUIRED TOOLS AND BRAVERY TO REPAIR THEM!

That 4s could fit my needs as I use 3s5000mAh. But I could take also the other.

unless you intend to ship outside the usa you might want to state it in your post
or your going to get asked a lot more about shipping it out

i make my own too sometimes but getting someone to ship is hard from all the rules concerning them ,even some sellers in hk and china are having trouble now
