I received the battery pack yesterday and its very well made. Im wondering can we charge the battery without using the balancer tab? Do i need to plug in the normal battery tab n balancer tab in order to charge the battery?

It depends what charger you are using some chargers need both the + - and the balance lead and some chargers need only the balance lead .

Default LiFe RX packs hit the US!

Hey guys. I've been working with Angelo and Lucy over the past year. As of today, I have a medium-sized inventory of the brick and stick LiFe RX packs. I'm located in Texas, and shipping to anywhere in the US is no problem. If you want one of these packs shoot me a PM and I'll get back with you as soon as possible.
Thanks,
Trey

If you havent seen these packs up close yet, you wont believe how small they are!

(pato... yours will be on the way shortly!)

Hi Angelo

sorry if this has been asked before, but do these packs need a regulator?

My thinking is that a fully charged 6.6V Life actually puts out something like 7.6V in it first few minutes... (just like a 7.4V lipo actually cranks out 8.4V in its early discharge)... which is plenty enough to toast non-regulated components, right? Just like you shouldn't run a fresh 5c nimh RX pack right off the charger straight in your car for the same reasons.

What am I missing here?

Thanks

Paul

The pack drops to 6.6v very quickly, there is no need to run a regulator.

And there is no reason to not run a fresh 5c NiMh RX pack right off the charger, I have been doing this in both planes and cars for years.

And one more, there is not 1 reason to not run a lipo in a starter box.

thanks for pitching in, but I was really asking Angelo (cobraracing)

But since you answered... The "very quickly" part is actually what's worrying me - there is a reason not to run fresh 5c nimh packs off the charger and it's the same reason why you run a regulator on a lipo pack: because it does crank out quite a bit of voltage in its first discharged mah (as opposed the the lipo who does it for much longer though) and your rx and/or servos are at risk for that time. The fact that you've done it before with no consequences doesn't mean it's systematically safe. I've done it too but I try not to do it when I'm not forced too... You don't necessarily get caught every time you're breaking the speed limit either. Or you don't always overdose when you do hard drugs. Or you don't always catch an STD when you spend the night with a stranger and use no protection. But when it happens, you feel sorry for not having been more cautious...

not commenting on the last one as it's off topic and I ain't sure what brought you to mention it, really by the way, you deserve my congratulations as this comment made you the second person ever to make my forum "ignore" list in 8 years of me using RCtech

My ole mate cobraracing will concur with me... I have been using the 6.6v pack for a few months... it does not charge much past 6.6V and is perfectly safe to be used as a rx pack.

Lonestar you must work in safety all I hear from you is blah... blah... blah... if you want to speed and take LSD then go for it!!! it might actually open your eyes to the real world!!! perhaps you should consider a safer hobby, such as knitting or crocheting.

For all those who want to race I firmly believe the Life pack is the future for racing, they may charge a little past 6.6V but under load this voltage will read 6.6V and hold there for quite some time. Be they packs from Cobraracing or a competitors pack... the Life pack weighs less than a NiMh and there is no need for a regulator like the similar Lipo RX pack.

Join the revolution.
