LRP 8000mAh & 4900mAh Outlaw hardcase LiPo packs

LRP 8000mAh & 4900mAh Outlaw hardcase LiPo packs

Coming soon from LRP are the Outlaw Car Line high-voltage hardcase LiPo battery packs. Thanks to the new HDS-X high density stacking technology the packs have a nominal voltage of 7.6V compared to the standard 7.4V of current 2S batteries. To make maximum use of the added voltage the batteries need to be charged to 8.70V using chargers with special charge programs or adjustable charge end voltage with the high-performance 110C/55C cells allowing for charge rates as high as 3C. Both the 8000mAh standard size and 4900mAh shorty battery do not comply with the current rules of governing bodies such as IFMAR, EFRA, ROAR and others so they are banned from competition use but they can be run in outlaw classes or in your favourite bashing vehicle.
