Team Corally have introduced their new top-of-the-foodchain AC/DC multi-chemistry charger. The Eclips 2400 400W dual channel device allows for up to 20A of charge current with its independent output ports with channel 1 offering up to 20A charge current and 400W charge power while the second port is good for up to 12A and 200W. The device can handle up to 6S LiXX, 15 cell NiXX and 2 to 20V Pb batteries, it offers several LiPo, LiHV, NiXX and Pb-specific charge and discharge programs including fast and balance charging and it makes use of a sturdy case and dual backlit LC displays. Dual internal balancers and temperature-controlled fans round out the package.
Arrowmax have expanded their range of high-voltage LiHV battery packs, with the introduction of a 5200mAh variant. Built from high-performance 55C LiPo cells the pack offers an increased nominal voltage of 7.6V compared to the standard 7.4V and it can be charged to up to 8.7V or 4.35V per cell. The “outlaw” battery provides improved punch and runtime and it can also be handled like a standard LiPo pack and charged to the lower 8.4V while maintaining a flatter discharge curve and better punch characteristics towards the end of a run compared to a standard LiPo battery. The hardcase pack features split decals for clean fastening using tape and it utilises 5mm connector tubes.
Coming from Marka Racing are two new 18.5mm low-profile LiPo battery packs. First up is the 3900mAh 110C 2S shorty pack, measuring 93x47x18.5mm and weighing in at 154g. The pack is ideal for 1/10th off-road and on-road cars and it makes use of industry-standard 4mm connectors. The second new battery is the 7200mAh 110C 1S pack for 1/12th scale vehicles. Offering the same dimensions as the 2S packs the 1S variant weighs in at 149g.
Hot on the heels of Team Corally’s all-new Eclips 2100 dual output charger comes the more powerful Eclips 2240 variant. Sporting an updated dual screen case and offering a charge power of up to 240 watts the device is good for up to 12 ampere charge current per channel, allowing to fill two up to 6S LiXX and LiHV batteries with ease. The device features a pair of temperature-controlled fans, internal balancers, back-lit displays and its menu offers LiXX and LiHV balance, charge, fast charge, storage and discharge functions as well as dedicated NiMH and Pb programs.
Coming from Team Corally is the Eclips 2100 dual output AC/DC multi-chemistry charger. With its 100W of charge power the device offers up to 10A charge current at channel 1 and up to 6A at channel two while an intelligent charge power distribution splits the available charge power between the two. Multi-chemistry-ready the charger can handle up to 6S LiXX packs, including LiHV batteries, up to 15 cell NiXX and also 2 to 20V lead-acid batteries. The two high-contrast displays help to monitor all of the batteries’ vital signs and two integrated, temperature-controlled fan units keep the internal temperatures at bay.
Reds Racing have introduced new high torque variants of their VX 540 13.5T and 21.5T brushless motors. Both offer increased low-RPM torque which can be beneficial especially in high-traction conditions while the top speed remains unchanged compared to the standard motors. The high torque variants, dedicated for blinky touring and formula racing, are also meant to run cooler and with a higher overall performance.
German company Ruddog have introduced their all-new RP690 1/8th scale sensored brushless motor. Developed in close cooperation with the company’s 1/8th scale racing team the motors offers high-class performance thanks to high-quality materials that greatly improve heat dissipation and overall performance. The motor is available as 1800KV, 2000KV and 2200KV variant for all driving styles and track conditions.
Coming from Tresrey are two new LCG LiPo battery packs. Available as 5800mAh 80C variant, weighing in at 257g and even lighter 4200mAh 50C pack, weighing in at 230g, both packs are made of high performance LiPo cells that offer a high amount of robustness compared to conventional packs while delivering more power at the same time. Both packs are of standard 139x47mm dimensions with the lower height of 22.6mm, compared to standard 25.1mm packs, making for an overall lower centre of gravity of the car.
