Reedy’s new drag specific Zappers DR 6600mAh SQ-configuration batteries are now available. The SQ, or ‘square’ configuration was the brainchild of the Reedy engineering team as a superior alternative to saddle packs. While the design ran out of favour in the 1:10 off-road racing world, it shines in the drag racing world thanks to its low centre of gravity and wide footprint, which provide excellent stability without sacrificing performance. Zappers DR batteries use state-of-the-art LiPo chemistry with advancements in construction that result in improved power output and internal resistance without sacrificing durability. The pack features a 3.8V/cell nominal voltage, which means that the battery can be safely charged to 4.35V/cell. It is not a secret that more voltage equals more power, so there is no easier way to increase power and top speed than a higher charge voltage. But even when the typical 8.44V (4.22V/cell) charging limit is enforced, Zappers DR shine thanks to their inherently flat discharge curve, which results in higher voltage when multiple passes are required between charges.
