## What does 1S mean on LiPo battery?

A LiPo cell has a nominal voltage of 3.7V, and a lipo cell = 1 cell = 1S = 3.7V. For the 14.8V battery above, that means that there are four cells in series (which means the voltage gets added together).

### What is a Saddle pack LiPo?

These battery packs are designed to replace the saddle style NiMH 6 cell trays. The goal is to evenly distribute the weight of the battery in an RC car. Only works with Saddle pack tray designed RC applications. Industry leading quality – made to order with the freshest cells.

#### What is the fastest LiPo battery?

The 6500 lipo battery is the highest performing lipo battery that money can buy. This lipo battery pack will work great for any brushless systems on the market including Castle Creations, Tekin, and Novak.

**Which is the best LiPo battery?**

The Gens Ace LiPo batteries surely come at the top in our list of the best LiPo battery brands. These batteries are best in terms of performance and durability. The Gens Ace LiPo battery, named as Gens ace 11.1V 5000mAh 3S 3 Cell LiPo, is well-known for its quick recharging and long life cycle qualities.

**What is 1S and 2S battery?**

1S, 2S, 3S etc refer to the number of cells in Series. Each cell is 3.7 volts. 1S = 3.7V, 2S = 7.4v, 3S = 11.1v and so on. The P rating is the number of series cells in parallel and that’s what gives you the amperage. The C number means the maximum continuous discharge rate.

## How long do 1S LiPo batteries take to charge?

The safest way to charge a lipo battery and the one that puts the least amount of strain on your battery is to charge at a rate of “1C” or 1 times capacity. A 1C charge rate means that the current will charge the entire battery in 1 hour ( assuming you are starting with a fully discharged battery around 3.2v ).

### What does S mean in batteries?

This is the notation for the configuration of the battery. S means Series, P means Parallel. XsYp means X cells in series (to get the desired voltage) and Y cells in parallel (to get the desired capacity).

#### What does 1S 2S mean LiPo?

**What amp should I charge my 1S LiPo?**

For the vast majority of LiPos, the Charge Rate is 1C. The equation works the same way as the previous discharge rating, where 1000mAh = 1A. So, for a 3000mAh battery, we would want to charge at 3A, for a 5000mAh LiPo, we should set the charger at 5A, and for a 4500mAh pack, 4.5A is the correct charge rate.

**Can you balance charge a 1S LiPo?**

1S batteries should NEVER need a balance charger to charge; in theory, you’re only charging 1 cell, even if you’re trying to charge 6 on the board, so it shouldn’t ever be trying to balance the battery.

## How long can I leave a LiPo fully charged?

2-3 days

Never leave your LiPo batteries sitting around on a full charge for more than 2-3 days. If by the 3rd day you realize you are not going to use your battery today, you need to discharge your battery down to 3.6v-3.8v per cell for safe storage until you are ready to use the battery again. 11.
