Ripped ipo wires, melted tamiya connector...need safe advice...
hello, everyone i have an Orion rocket lipo 7.4v 4000mah 25c. Unfortunatly it has the dreaded tamiya standard plug unlike my other lipos that have deans, My original intention was to solder a deans ultra connector onto it. well, before i got around to that i used it with a deans to tamiya adapter, crashed, melted the battery to the adapter, and ripped the wires as you can see below
I know i'm a tart for not just clipping the standard off right at the base of the connector and instead accidently peeling the wire. All that being said the battery is not puffed or damaged to my knowledge even though it reads 3.96 and 3.90.
Question is. What do i do to salvage this battery. should i cut the wires further down and solder a deans connector that shrink it? Probably an easy fix i just want to do it correctly and SAFELY. thanks in advance for your help.
