Bad Day with new Venom Lipos


Went to run my SV today. Took along 2 new venom lipos i got for xmas. Ran good for 3 mins...then the power loss and smoke started!!! retrieved the boat both batteries were hotter than and the plugs in the battery case had migrated about an 1/8th of an inch. Had to turn the boat over too get them out and they STAYED hot. Couldnt even handle them to pick them up. Contacted venom we will see what they do. I'll prolly be SOL caue A. they were a present (no reciept) and B. They are damaged lipos so i rather doubt the postal service will allow them to be shipped back. Sucks to be me. On the up side the boat is ok

everything on all my stuff is EC5. Never had a problem with my SV. Venom said it suonded like a dead short via their FB page. We shall see what they have to offer. These are the first venom lipo packs i have ever had.....needless to say thus far I am less than impressed

Sorry to hear that, it is not like they are cheap packs… Even if they replace them it seems like you may end up in the same situation without modifying the connectors… Lets us know if they stand behind their product please…

Are these the batts? If so, these are made for land use with the tiny connectors.....................boats have a high continuous amp draw that got them smokin hot.

That's the problem I ran into and trying to think of a fix/correction. I never opened a hardcase lipo before, anyone have any tips?!? ... This could be interesting

I dont think its worth it to pay quite a bit more for Venoms only to have to split them open and mod them for boat use. Just get Skylipo's, Gens, Turnigy's or Flightmax.

Pretty close to those packs yes Scorp. The 2 I have(had) were in red hard cases. And I understand what your saying, but I guess why bother to make a battery that cant even handle its own max discharge rate? seems kinda silly on Venoms part to me

Either that or just plain dumb...........................

But they are clearly made for land use.

I just don't get it... So much potential amp delivery and restricted by a not needed design. I think I am going to split mine and hard wire them. Sucks, but will elimenate a weak point.
