Arrowmax’ latest addition to their growing range of high-performance LiPo batteries is the 6200mAh 3.7V 1S pack. Measuring a standard 93x47x18.5mm the battery is built from a single high-quality 65C cell whose high capacity is ideal for modified and stock racing alike. The 1/12th scale specific hardcase battery is available from now on.
Coming from Horizon Hobby are the new Dynamite Reaction HV LiHV hardcase battery packs. Made using high-quality 50C cells the battery packs are ideal for bashers and also outlaw racing classes as their high-voltage LiPo cells offer increased overall voltage over standard cells. The batteries can be charged up to 4.35V per cell versus the standard 4.2V, using a HV-compatible charger, and they are available in a range of configurations including a 4000mAh 7.6V/2S shorty pack with EC3 connector, a 5000mAh 7.6V/2S standard-size pack, a 5000mAh 11.4V/3S 35mm height pack with EC5 connector and a 5000mAh 15.2V/4S battery. The standard 2S and 4S packs are available with EC3, EC5, Deans and Traxxas compatible connectors.
Coming from Arrowmax is their latest high-performance LiPo battery pack in the form of a 4500mAh 3S variant. Built using the latest generation of heavy duty 40C/80C cells with improved electrolyte composition and new high-density stacking the battery offers exceptional performance and durability even in demanding applications such as 1/8th and 1/10th on-road and off-road cars. What makes the 11.1V battery special is the reduced height of 25.1mm, making the 3S pack as large as a standard 2S battery. This leads to weight advantages over a standard 3S pack, allowing for higher performances especially in 1/8th scale vehicles. Another feature is the unique balancer power that is hidden behind a removable silicone cover. The features list is rounded out by 5mm bullet-type tube connectors for improved power supply.
Reedy have announced the release of their new Zappers high-performance LiHV and LiPo battery packs. At 7.6V the LiHV pack offers a higher voltage than the standard 7.4V pack, meaning increased performance during bashing or when racing “outlaw” classes. The battery can be safely charged to 8.7V and even when the typical 8.4V charging limit is enforced, the battery still offers a significant advantage thanks to a flatter discharge curve, which results in more voltage deeper into the race. Available as 4800mAh 7.6V LiHV and also as 4400mAh 7.4V standard LiPo pack, both make use of 5mm bullet-type connectors with the standard voltage pack built to meet ROAR, EFRA, BRCA and IFMAR specifications.
Available from Murfdogg is the SuperCharger 7000mAh 7.4V LiPo battery pack. Built using high performance cells the battery offers a very low internal resistance for improved voltage output under load while the high capacity makes the pack ideal for demanding modified and stock racing alike. The hardcase battery is also ROAR-approved and legal for sanctioned racing.
JConcepts have introduced their Shorty LiPo storage box for up to three shorty-type LiPo battery packs. The box has a small footprint which makes it ideal for short trips with minimal amounts of space. The inside of the box is roomy enough for three shorty batteries and cushioned with high-impact foam that takes away stress during storage and transpiration. The foam insert has built-in areas which allow finger tip access top and bottom for that necessary grabby feel. The custom built, black colour storage box has JConcepts.net logos for authenticity and built-in plastic latches for easy open and close operation. Designed for short-term storage and to keep things nice and tidy, the box is not safe for charging or long-term storing Lithium packs.
Yokomo have introduced the Racing Performer Ultra LCG 5000mAh LiPo battery pack. The hardcase battery pack weighs in at a lightweight 274g, making for a perfect chassis balance while the high-performance 70C/140C cells allow the use in both competitive stock and modified racing. On top of this the low profile design makes for an overall lower centre of gravity when compared to standard 25.1mm tall packs. The battery, that utilises 5mm and 4mm connector tubes, becomes available by mid-September.
Fantom have introduced their new MaxV-Spec Pro Racing Series LiPo battery packs. Featuring a modified chemistry that increases the average voltage and lowers the internal resistance, the packs offer high performance in spec class racing from 13.5T through 25.5T. The standard-size packs are available as 6200mAh variant weighing in at 311g and utilising 5mm bullet-type connector, with 5mm/4mm reducer tubes included, and also as lightweight 5000mAh pack weighing in at 273g and featuring 4mm connectors. The 110C/160C rated packs are also available as pre-soldered batteries with genuine Deans T-type connectors and JST-XH balancer ports.
