Problem: The battery in my R/C car wouldn't charge. This can happen sometimes when NiMH and NiCad batteries go without use for long periods of time.
Solution: Voltage Blast! Please use caution as batteries can SPLODE! Also, I have no idea if this works on lithium type batteries. There are no guarantees that this will work and this could cause damage to your... Everything. In this case I used an AC/DC adaptor to give a 4.8V 150mAh NiMH battery made for a Losi Micro T/B/DT Remote Control Car a Voltage Blast. It works almost like a defibrillator on a heart shocking the battery back to life.
