How do I dispose of a LiPo battery?

To recycle, simply tape up any exposed leads on the battery and bring it to your local battery recycling center or lithium drop-off location. You can also see if your charger has a “destroy” feature that will completely discharge your battery. If your charger does not have this feature, you can use a resistor to fully discharge the battery. Make sure you’re in a fire-safe, outdoor location.

Only after the battery has been discharged to 0 volts, can you strip off enough insulation to join the positive and negative wires together, and throw it away! If you ever have any questions, click here and our battery tech team will be happy to help.
