Team Orion Carbon Molecular LiPo batteries

Team Orion Carbon Molecular LiPo batteries

Team Orion have announced their new range of hard case Carbon Molecular LiPo batteries. Since 2008 Oscar Jansen, the company’s electric R&D manager, has been working closely with their manufacturing plant with the aim to create the most powerful LiPo battery produced today. The goal has been to produce cells made for RC Car applications and not to just choose existing cells from the industrial production and put them on the market. Everything started from a white page, a new factory was established and all the production is exclusive to Team Orion. The basic idea is to produce the lowest internal resistance batteries with the highest power output able to provide the peak current required for acceleration but also to maintain the voltage under heavy load. Multi carbon molecules are used in the construction of the LiPo batteries so the cells have the possibility to recover voltage extremely fast. This allows a 45C constant current discharge of 10 seconds which means about 250 Amps. For such current pure copper 12AWG wire is used, soldered directly to the cell terminals. Available in a wide range of configurations for different applications.
