Wire broken on LiPo

by adanew on Thu Apr 25, 2019 9:50 pm

Hi,

One of the wires came apart from my 3.7V Lipo 400mWh (https://www.adafruit.com/product/3898). Is this reparable by a beginner? I thought maybe I could try soldering but am not sure how to do this safely with the battery.

Thank you

Make sure you are only working on one wire at a time and tin the wire ahead. Use as little time as possible and once you get a good connection use something like hot melt or epoxy to add some strain relief.
