Today I was running my truggy. My ESC has a cutoff except it was quite low, I don't have the proggrame card for it so I can't change settings. Anyway, I was running it usually with a cell checker on the balance plug, this time I stupidly forgot to put it on. When I got home I checked them. They were 3.05v per cell, it was within 0.02v for the other cells together, no swelling not that warm. So hoping they haven't lost any power, capacity etc. Straight away, I put them on charge to get voltage back up. How dangerous is this voltage? Or how damaging to the actual battery is it? I really hope I haven't stuffed up my new batts. Answers much appreciated.

3v per cell should be fine. I have run a 2s down to 2.6v per cell and it was fine afterwards - charge normally and balance fine.
