Trinity introduce Motolyser DC 1S booster

Trinity have introduced the Motolyser DC 1S booster for all 1S LiPo battery classes. Super small and of a low weight the voltage booster allows to run 1S LiPo-powered 1/12th and 1/10th scale cars without the need for an additional, and heavy, receiver battery pack. The booster features an on/off switch that is mounted right on the PCB for improved durability and reliability and it was used by TQ Marc Rheinard and new IFMAR World Champion, Naoto Matsukura, among others, during this week’s Electric On-road World Championships.
