Gibbs Guide to LiPo (Lithium Polymer) Batteries

Gibbs Guide to Lithium Batteries The NEW Gibbs Guide to LiPo batteries is a comprehensive resource for modellers needing to know how to safely get the best from their LiPo batteries.

This extensively revised and enlarged guide concentrates only on LiPo batteries. It contains a wealth of guidance and essential information along with many clearly drawn diagrams, tables and charts. Topics covered include charging, discharging, ‘C’ limits, balancing, safety, avoiding fires, hints and tips and much more.

Like all Gibbs Guides, it’s written and illustrated in a clear and easy to understand way. No assumed prior knowledge is made. Each chapter builds on the material from previous chapters, but is also a clear explanation in its own right. By the end of the guide you will have been presented with a concise yet very thorough guide to LiPo batteries.

This guide should be considered essential reading for every user of LiPo batteries, even if you’ve used them without problems until now – because well used LiPo batteries that have so far given no problems may be about to catch fire on their next charge. This guide will show you how to identify such batteries and also tells you what to do about them.

The guide will serve as an excellent introduction for newcomers to LiPo use and will also develop the knowledge of modellers with considerable previous LiPo experience.

This guide will help extend the life of your batteries and help you avoid a LiPo fire, so investing in a copy really could save you much more than its purchase price.
