All packs will be cycled on Competition Electronics Lipo T35GFX. Pack specs will be posted on the back of the packaging. The reason for doing this is to show the racer exactly what they are paying for. This will also allow us to remove low or faulty packs as with any products there is a chance of some defects.

SMC also guarantees were using a true C rate and mAH. Method of C rate certification is 90% of rated capacity at maximum C rate discharge.

2 questions...

1) are these roar approved yet?

b: when will you be shipping them to Billy at Speedworld?

I am a Lipo fan and this will be something I look for in my next purchase of a lipo pack. As long as it is ROAR legal due to the race in June.;)

Great job Danny. I am not aware of any others doing this.

They will be submitted to ROAR. As far as I know there is no ROAR approved Lipos at the moment.

We will ship out packs as fast as we can get them cycled so orders will ship daily.

Our goal is to raise the bar for Lipos. There is way to many Lipo manufacturers who seem to claim certain C rates or capacity and were confident that our packs are some of the best so we can prove it by giving actual pack specs. The fact that were cycling them means that if certain packs are lower or have issues we will not sell them.

I believe racers will be very happy with these new packs. One of the guys testing our Helicopter packs which are made using the same high quality materials tells us that our packs are the best ones he has ever used and after 50 cycles they keep getting better and outperform his other packs.

Didn't know some packs were already approved but ours will be submitted next week and it's my understanding that it takes a few days to get the testing done.

Are these new packs 2S2P or 2S1P ?
Thanks.

Danny/SMC 02-14-2008 09:30 AM

The 4000 is 2S1P and the 5000 is 2S2P.

ghuber 02-14-2008 09:35 AM

Danny, I like your idea of cycling the packs using a GFX. :nod: Good idea...
