I bought a hummie deck and a 12s 6p battery (with a diebiems) a good while ago (1’5yrs?) from a forum member at a ridiculously cheap price!
I’m all about cheap stuff so I was happy, i installed everything on my new board and got rolling. It was a lot more powerful than my 8s board and I was having so much fun!
It all went without much issues (had to resolve some cutout issues) untill now.
I connected the charger to my board and arround 3 mins in i heard a hissing sound coming from it. I RAN across my house into the yard with the board on top fearing it might be the battery.
I left it on the middle of the yard and ran away. Arround 2 mins pass and I hear no hissing so I adventure my self with a electric screwdriver on hand and quickly dismantled my board and took off the battery from it…
Then, 5 mins later, after no activity was detected I proceeded to disassemble the battery after 1’5 years of service without ever (even when I bought it) being checked. (I have to say I did good maintenance on my battery and on the board and took care of it, but never took the plastic off.
I don’t think battery disposal containers are thought for lipo or liion batteries, they’re more for normal AA or AAA batteries… As an example, you wouldnt just go and leave a car battery on the supermarket container right?
wow. What a work of art, I mean really a labor of love, it probably took the guy that built this battery longer to wrap each cell in electrical tape then it would take an average battery builder to build that entire pack i guess it’s like a short cut that makes it longer to build a battery.
