I purchased a 5000mA Turnigy Nano-Teck 4S 35C, at Hobbyking for my quad-copter in build.
After a small error, i fried out one the "ground side" cell of my battery with 5 or 6 recharge cycles.
So i decided that i dont need right now a 3S battery, so i purchased a 1S Turnigy Battery bundle to repair my damaged one.
So first thing first, remove the damaged cell, was easy with my 80W iron.
The new cell, fortunately was almost the same size,just a little wider and shorter.
Is a Turnigy 5000mA 40C
Cheking Battery Health - OK!
All ok, and alight, now is soldering time.
A final Check.
And the final result.
After 30min, and some tape i finally restore the battery, i spend 12€ in the end.
The battery is working, and i know that is not a long life battery, after a over discharge, the renaming 3 cells are stressed, but for a low price and only 2 battery's in my gear that worth the risk.
I have some doubts, the cover is insulator tape, and i dont know how she will do in heat. and the C rate, the original turnigy as 35C and the cell that i brought is 40C .
I hope that you enjoyed my little article.
