Questions?? MaxAmps 8000mah 7.4 HV

What voltage should these 8000mah lipo batteries be stored at ? I dont mean months of storing, but a week or longer.

Any Li-Po should be stored at 60% of it's rated capacity if it is going to site for 2 weeks or longer and then it should be cycled at least on every 30 Days. Our Li-Po care page on our website can be seen here:

Default MaxAmps 8000mah HV

The Hyperion duo II charger that i bought says they are a bit above 60%, but the voltage shows around 7.88 volts each pack. They are suppose to be 7.4 volt packs, how can they have a higher than rated voltage at 60% ?

7.4 volts is the nominal voltage of a 2S pack. They fully charge to 8.4 volts. If the charger says 60% then your good.

Default hv battery packs

i see this a lot when referring to batteries.

why do they consider this to be a hv pack?
it is 7.4 volts...how is that considered to be high voltage. just because it has a high capacity, does not mean the voltage is any different.
7.4 volts is 7.4 volts no matter how you look at it.
why not consider it high capacity?
so much terminology is incorrect in r/c and it is annoying.\
high voltage in real life is 600v or higher.
but for r/c i can understand the the most common voltage is 7.2/7.4, so anything higher can be called high voltage, yet they should call the 14.8 volt batteries and higher high voltage.

so, to hitec, why is it that you refer to a pack like this as high voltage?

Yikes!!! Wow, sorry but we simply use HV to label our 20C packs. It's as simple as that.
