Default Who sells the Trakpower 3S 4900mah Lipo Battery

Who currently stocks the 3S 4900mah Trakpower Lipo Battery pack?

Thinking of picking up 2 of these for that new E-revo in the future with a Mamba Monster Max setup .

I just bought a 2S pack from Amainracing at $109.00. Tower Hobbies also sells them. I do not know if they have a 3S version. Maybe wire 2 2S packs in series for 4S power.

They only have the 2s LiPo. The OP is looking for the new 3s with the traxxas connector. I haven't found them yet. My LHS said he could order one for me so I am waiting on that.

Jeez, where is the Dawg when ya need him? He's usually pretty much on top of things.

Try www.bulldawgrc.com, he's got them listed, is usually pretty active around these parts.

Well, assuming the 5400 fits: http://www.bulldawgrc.com/trli543cet.html

Wait a minute, you have a lipo thing in your signature?

I've looked all over online for these as well. My guess is that FlightpowerUSA hasn't gotten them in yet.

The Dawg is in the building, i have not seen the 4900 in trakpowers stock since i have been selling for them. you can purchase a 5400 3s and just put whatever type of battery connector you wish for it. i run them in my crt.5 conversion and it has sick power. great over all battery. all i am running is gold bars in my electrics. trakpower is a very reliable and reputable company.

I'll just wait until the 4900's finally make their way to the US. After running 2S 4900's for over a year, I just won't settle for a 16C battery when the manufacturer makes an identical size pack at the same price with a 122.5A continuous rating compared to the 5400 pack burst rating of 135A. It's a night and day difference in cells IMO.

i understand where you are coming from and good things are def worth the wait. i have a feeling its gonna be a while but will try to update everyone when available but the 5400 is a great alternative in the meantime.

Please keep us informed. It may be a mute point though as what I want to use it for (EREVO) has a sealed set of battery boxes and I can get the batteries without the hardcase in the configuration I need, but, I could see it as something great to use in a 1/8 scale conversion where the battery is not fully sealed.

Not planning on getting the E Revo, but I think it would be a great pack for my Slash!

Thanks for the update. These will make great packs for my CRT that's set up with dual battery trays. With a couple of these in my box, I could go 4S, 5S or 6S in my CRT once my Mamba Monster comes in.
