# 11.1 LiPo battery lead got too hot and shows 0 voltage now [closed]

I was working on my project using the LiPo battery. I mistakenly connected the battery terminals + to - and - to +, due to which the leads become too hot that it give me a heat shock. The charge in battery returned to zero. I placed it on charge with its charger, but the lights on the charger were not all red to show that it is discharged, one of the three lights was green. I took it out and check it after some time but it wasnt charged. I placed it again , this time 2 lights were green 1 off. I am confused whats wrong. Is the battery out of work? What if I charge it from another battery that is fully charged, connecting it + to + and - to - ?

I've seen some guys around the net that usually charge fat LiPos in metal ammunition boxes, just in case. – Vladimir Cravero Jun 3 '15 at 17:55 • @BilalAyub - Yes, buy a new battery.$18 is not worth getting blown up over... – I.
