Default New Reedy Li-Po Battery Packs



Source - http://www.rc-area.co.uk/blog/?p=2743

“Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, Reedy is proud to introduce reliable and powerful 7.4V 20C Li-Po battery packs designed specifically for use in R/C cars and trucks. A unique hard case design helps protects the battery from damage. Integrated locking nubs simulate sub-c cell profiles to allow the battery to be easily installed in slotted touring car chassis. By simply flipping the battery over, perfect installation in off-road vehicles is achieved. Reedy makes available a choice of two capacities to suit enthusiasts’ application and budget requirements. Both come equipped with 14AWG silicone wire and a Tamiya® style connector. The 5000mAh Pro model comes equipped with 12AWG wire only so that the user can install his favorite plug. Reedy Li-Po batteries offer many advantages over traditional Ni-MH batteries:

* Exclusive case design helps protect the battery from damage while allowing easy installation in touring car and off-road chassis
* Up to 30% longer runtime than NiMH batteries of equal capacity
* Lighter than Ni-MH batteries of equal capacity
* No limit to the number of consecutive uses
* Improved cell efficiency results in less energy lost as heat and greater power output
* Battery can be charged well in advance of use with no loss in performance
* Reduced maintenance
* Longer lifespan (up to 10 times!) reduces battery costs
* Balancing connector included - no complicated wiring required!

Yay! An actual picture. If the leads exit the case out the top (bottom?) they'll work for me. Well, maybe not, if it has the "bumps"

This is the OG thread, fwiw.

And with the wires coming out where they do and you dont use the cell numbs its actualy optimal for any car as the leads(wires) will never interfear with any bulkheads or battery straps so you will never have to try and fish your speedo wires through bulkheads and or battery straps.

yea that would work. but then what's the point of having the nubs in there if you're just gonna flip it over? CF chassis probably won't be a problem but it might interfere with installing into a tub chassis.

Coming out the end is better then the side IMO. More options and generally more clearance. Why do you say wrong side? Thats the same side you would solder a NiMh on in a sedan. With the exit location on end, I think offering a top exit and bottom exit option would be a smart idea though.

yea. the connectors usually point straight up. The big reason why I said that is because I think it might interfere with mounting.

Now, had they ran the leads straight up like a NIMH pack, there'd be no problem. This.. i'm a little concerned about.
