How do you charge your batteries?


#1

Hi,

I just received my batteries and I realized that I would need to charge them...

So here is my question: how do you charge them?

The first idea is to take them out of the battery pack, but it would take a lot of manipulations.

I guess there is a better way...

Thanks for your help,

Kind regards,

Benoit

Hey Benoit,

Yeah- although it's a bit challenging, they only way to charge the batteries right now is to take them out and put them in the external charger two at a time. We're working on some electronics which may one day allow you to do charging in the battery packs, but that's still a while away.

Best of luck with your build!

Hi Benoit,

If you have access to a 3D printer I recommend this little tool that helps remove the battery end caps from the tubes.
