Reedy Zappers SG4 HV-LiPo 2S batteries

New for 2021, Reedy introduce their new Zappers SG4 HV-LiPo 2S batteries. Zappers SG4 batteries incorporate state-of-the-art LiPo chemistry with advancements in construction that result in incremental improvements in power output and internal resistance with huge gains in durability. Featuring a 3.8V/cell nominal voltage, meaning 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. Even when the typical 8.40V (4.2V/cell) charging limit is enforced, Zappers SG4 shine thanks to their inherently flat discharge curve, which results in higher voltage deeper into the race. Available in several configurations, including all-new 2S Slim Stick and 4S Shorty models, for a variety of on-road and off-road applications. A high quality, durable hard case helps prevent damage while embedded socket connectors keep power-robbing resistance to a minimum. Male ESC connectors are included.
