Question
Been around li-po`s for some time now.

Can li-po`s mingle with or around magnets? Been wondering for some time now..or does magnets not pose any problem to a li-po, as opposed to the older Ni-Mh and the likes of them?

Magnets do not effect LiPolys. I have used magnets to hold LiPolys in small aircraft.

So lipo is a polymer with lithium in it, and lithium is a non sensitive metal in regards to magnetism?!
The truth is in there...

The little Snap-n-fly batts are held in with two magnets which are also the contacts for the batt.

And one part of the truth is that there is no metallic lithium in a lithium polymer battery.

And there never was a particular problem with Nixx batteries and magnets either .

That's news to me.

Other than magnets sticking to the cases, of course.

But if you're perfectly healthy, then it's not bad for you
