what is the temperature that would cause the P3s battery to explode or leak acid . ??
Above 71 °C. (160 °F) It's written on the battery itself. They say it is the max temperature you can tolerate, above that you should quickly shut everything off before it's too late.
what about in - temperatures ??
And there's no acid to leak from a LiPo battery
If I remember well it is -10° C (15 ° F)
For charging, they say you shouldn't charge it below 0 °C
so if it was -40 what would happen to it?
i would not be using it, but what would happen if it had a -40 temperature environment
It wouldn't even power on. battery cells would be so **** cold
its because i would be putting in a plane, so i just want to make sure nothing would happen to it if i did, ??
Don't worry, there are actual people in planes, so temperature is set accordingly. Your batteries will never have to face such low/high temperatures in a plane
I'm putting the battery in the hold.
Errrr no . Battery must be carry on I think you will find
but how can i take it on the plane, won't they stop me?? also don't i need a fire proof bag?
I was expecting this question
Temp in a plane is 20-22 °C.
The hold is also pressurized, with an average temp of 17-19 °C
so the hold would be a ok idea???
Putting Lithium batteries in checked luggage is a BIG no no.
Understand the rules before you fly and it will be a lot easier for you at the airport..
but don't i need a fire proof bag to fly with a lipo battery
If your case is to large to carry on you could check it with one battery installed in the P3 but any spares must be carry on. As I would never transport the P3 with the battery installed just carry on all batteries charged to no more than 20% (at least that is where mine were and TSA had no issue with it)
