You will burn the motor for sure and eventually the esc.. I tried this and it was fun while it lasted.

I ended up getting the 1N4001 diode. Hopefully its the right one.

Now anybody know the name of the battery connector type so I can get some for my 3s lipo?

Are you running the stock electronics?

Hi all,

I'm Pierre, from france. I've received my boat a few days ago, however, the stock charger never appeared to be working. (red solid led that won't change even after a whole charging night, never got warm or anything)

I then decided to order another one from banggood, and same here, the charger seemed to be OK at first, gently warming up, but after 2 hours, he became cold again, and there again, after a whole night of charging, still red. (I've tried those chargers with 2 different batteries though). Beside, I've disassembled these chargers to see if something went wrong in there (not shure wether this is a very good / dangerous idea ?), and this second one really smelt like burnt...)

After these 2 unsuccessful attemps, I would like to buy a new "consistant" charger for these boat batteries (i've got 3 of them, so, no advises on charger that wouldn't fit with the stock plugs).

Would you have any advises for me ?

I've seen that one that may correspond to what I'm looking for :

However, I've noticed that boat batteries are not Lipos but Li-ons, and as a "not RC expert" I'm not too shure of this charger.

Thanks in advance for your help !

Pierre
