    According to what I was taught in my certification program, taking a lipo to 0%=death. The battery can't be salvaged. All that said, I've never actually experienced this so no direct knowledge.

    Wow, you have really used your batteries, how many cycles on them?

    If I remember correctly its not advisable to use them with less than 75-80% health left, so perhaps you should discard them, but I could be wrong.

    0 health is different than 0 charge. The "health" report just gives you information on the ability of the battery to take a charge. If your battery were at 0 charge it probably would have exploded already. Just remember that the lights on the batteries represent "usable power" which in actuallity is only a fraction (about 20%) of what the lipo can hold.

    I dont think a battery would be even usuable at 50%, a high current pull and it will easily trigger shutdown...
