2 Gens ace 4000mah 3s batteries

All brand new, and I have original boxes if interested.

Story: with no 4ch experience i wanted to build my own plane, failed and want to recover some of the costs.

Condition: slight dents in silver covering, nothing more than .5mm deep. One has been discharged by about 500mah, will charge to whatever requested voltage prior to shipping. They have never been fully discharged.

Specs: 4000mah, 3s, 25c discharge, 5c charge.

Cost: $25 each, not including shipping (calculated), willing to negotiate. (CAD or USD)

Edit: my sister just came into my room and put the two ends of the batteries together, nothing is wrong with the batteries, but the connections overheated and plastic melted, will send batteries with extra 4mm banana plugs that can be soldered on. I may be willing to redo the connections if needed.

I don't think you will be able to sell them for that price anymore.

I'm sitting here picturing those two packs connected and the hugh current that would flow through both packs and the wiring. If left together they would likely explode and set the house on fire.

Now if those packs had Deans connectors or the X60 connector from HK on them it would be impossible to connect them together.

I commend you for telling us what happened but I agree that it's reasonable to assume that the packs may be damaged internally.

If by chance the connection was only for a few seconds, they may have survived unscathed, but considering what happened to the connectors, it sounds like they were together for longer than a few seconds.

I wouldn't sell those anymore. I couldn't live with the fear that something internally is wrong and it could end up setting someones house on fire.

Keep them and understand the risk or dispose of them.
