Well, I have four DJI lipos that have pooped the bed after roughly 30 flights each. My retailer (B&H) will not take them back because it has been more than 30 days. I have discharged them as much as I can. What do I do with them now?
perfectly good recommendation, just throwing it out there that home improvement stores like Home Depot and Lowes also have heavy-duty battery drop boxes if that winds up being more convenient than a BBJacob said:+1 for Best Buy. Take it there and place it in the bin at the entrance in a fire-safe bag if possible.
I sale on e bay and also recycle PC scrap for the gold but not sure what you would get out of them . E bay gonna get ya for 10 % of what ya sell it for then PayPal gonna get 2 1/2 % and then ya got shipping to add in .crgonyar said:I'd try to sell them on eBay... I had one that was toast from a water crash that sold on eBay for over $50. I advertised as-is water crash. I don't know if I was lucky to get over $50 or not, but there is some value left in them. I wouldn't just recycle them for free.
That's a good read and didn't know a lot of that !IflyinWY said:http://oes.tamu.edu/web/guidelines/battery/LiPo%20Procedures.pdf
