    I like my 5Ah 4S & 6S Turnigys with low resistances and matching cells. They cost about hundred euros so not bad.
    They do become cooler when charging, dunno if that's a good or bad sign.

    I keep them in the water till they stop bubbling and the water gets clear again, about 2 days.

    You'll want to fully discharge the battery then twist leads together after being clipped to ensure they don't get a charge again and then let it sit in the salt water. Least that's what I've been told to do.
    Was also told if you don't discharge the battery and let it sit in the saltwater the tabs can come off leaving the charge still intact in the cells.

    Main thing is to fully discharge the cells properly by charger or discharge lightbuld setup
    then cross the leads once the cells are at zero

    Edit: don't quote me on this.... Just what I've been told

    Use a volt meter and connect it to the leads. I almost forgot that I had two batteries sitting in a bucket since last Sunday lol
