I've got a question about the 1S Intellect 6000mAh 60C pack (IP-CC1S6000V6). I thought I'd post it here rather than start a new thread.

The pictures of it online have ROAR Approved stickers on the pack, but it's not on the ROAR Approved list on the ROAR website. Can anyone tell me why?

updates on the site can't keep up with forums Once the sticker is there, isn't that definite?

My problem is that I'm in Australia, where the allowed batteries for us are ROAR or BRCA approved batteries, from the date they were approved + 1 month.

Without the pack listed on the official list there is no way to know when it was approved, and so I wouldn't be allowed to use it. If the list isn't going to be updated for 6 months then I won't be able to use the pack for 6 months.

Techincally at sanctioned events you should only be charging at 1c as that is the rules. How this would be policed i have no idea and im sure there are plenty of raccers out there who did nto obey this at the big events.

If you get a quality battery like thunder power you can charge up to 6c if you charger can handle it. I charge my packs at 7 amps all the time at club meets and have had zero issues all year with my TP packs I see IP packs puffing and failing everywhere.

Can be charged at 2C with no issues. (11.6 amps) I usually stop at 9.0 amps just for piece of mind. Been doing this for a couple years now.
