Yang, have you guys done (or has anyone for that matter) done testing with boosters, Vs. Receiver packs on 1S LiPo?

yeah, we have had a couple of guys do quite a bit of testing. andrew is one of those guys, but I am sure you did not have to guess that. lol. sorry awd.

AWD is running a booster and I am running a rx pack. I can tell you what a pain running 2 different cap batteries. I have run run 4 charges for 2 classes. can't imagine when I finally get my WGT lipo going. I think in stock and 13.5 you will be ok with a booster. I run 1800-2000mah in 17.5 and about 2700mah in 13.5 so there is still plenty of run time to run a booster.

its grey in color, looks a bit like felt. i think i saw a extra rolls were the larger size. i don't know for certain but i understood they had bought the carpet from CRC.

(sorry this is my first experience with carpet)

Well I wasn't looking at run times per say, I had a couple guys at the track telling me that the booster takes power away from the motor and speed will suffer, is AWD seeing that at all?

we are not seeing the power loss. he and I are pretty close week to week. my concern is that if you are using too much mah out of the pack, not sure if the booster will be able to maintain a constant voltage/current to the servo\rx.

i can tell you it is soo much easier with the booster. but I just feel more confident in a pair of batteries then another electronic device that may fail.

I have to say that I used both rx packs and now the Novak Booster. The booster is a shrunk wrapped lumpy pc board that is not exactly small, but I would not pry it out of my car at this point. It's clearly the way to go for multiple reasons. If a rx pack uses 50mah per 8 minute run, the look at it this way:assume that a booster uses double that even though the voltage is not quite doubled, call it 100mah consumed over the course of 8 minutes. That's .1th of an amp or .012mah/minute taken from the main pack. That's a tiny load from your battery.

Bottom line: way easier racing!

This from the guy who keeps forgetting to plug in his main pack and keeps draining his receiver pack to 4 volts with the first pull of the trigger!

Adam,

I have run the booster vs the receiver pack back to back and I have not noticed ANY discernible difference other than convenience.
