Hmm.

I asked because I know certain companies give good warranties on these things, and you can beat them up and at the least get a deal on a new one. like this warranty from venom

You can also try and charge battery.you will have to watch your charger.try and charge it on a different setting NOT LIPO.. like nicad and charge it on nicad at ..point 10..1/10 amp when it hits 10volts pull then try and charge it like a 3 cell lipo but only at a 1/2 amp charge..all depends on your charger,,then after that try and run it for a few minutes like 2 max and try and recharge it as a 3 cell lipo.at 1 amp.. after a few cycles u might bring it back.. but ull never get more than 90% outa it..

That issue is only with a cheap charger that uses the balance plug to monitor voltage.l

UPDATE

The battery was in fact not a traxxas battery. It is a tenergy battery. I contacted the company and they told me they have a LIMITED warranty. So I tried the charging trick. The battery is taking a charge on Lipo now and I think I have at least a useable battery. Thanks for all the help guys.
