I received one of my spare batteries from my LHS (distributor for Horizon Hobby) and when I went to charge it, my charger indicated the battery was fully charged. This battery came in a Yuneec branded box with all the padding and paperwork I would expect to see in a shipping package. I would not have thought that batteries were supposed to be shipped fully charged? Is this some new thing with LiPO batteries? Yes, I tried to search for the past thread were this was mentioned but did not read through every page of every thread found with "batteries" as the keyword. Sorry.
