Default Battery dying

I got my micro crawler last week and I noticed that if I leave the battery pulled into the car over night, the battery is dead the next morning. Anyone else having this issue? I usualy unplug it over night as habit from my lipos from ym other cars, I just noticed it from when I forgot to unplug it once the otherday.

I've left mine plugged in overnight several times now. Didn't notice really. But I charge it up before running it every time anyways. They are low mAh though. When you leave any battery plugged in it's going to drain it the longer it sits.

The battery will drain if you leave it plugged in, even if its not on. Heck unless its a lipo it will drain alittle overnight plugged in or not. Mine will dump 40-50 mah just sitting there unplugged for 24 hrs.

Yeah, all nihm batteries do that, you just don't notice it with the larger batteries. Just charge it before you want to drive.

Cool thanks for the help. I asked one of the guys I work with because he crawls with one of the bigger rigs. He said to post here and ask. Thanks for the help again
