Default NEW TECHNOLOGY RX BATTERY

Hello guys and girls

Just letting you all know about this new rx stick pack 1200mah 6.4volt(HUMP PACK WILL BE AVAILABLE ALSO) which will replace the lipo packs and will also eliminate the unreliable regulators as it will work with no problem on your standard receiver module yes yes yes .
The battery can be charged at 10amps without the worry of using a charge bag like lipo's are meant to use and will also have excellent run time .The pack can be charged with the latest chargers of today as long as it excepts lifep04 .Its uses the same port as the lipo on your charger.

they are also light weight like the lipo's

Its designed and manufacture by close friends of mine and will be available soon .we will be testing this pack ourselves this week so ill keep you all informed how it goes but according to factory testing the pack it works fine without a regulator houray.

enjoy and ill keep you all informed

Ya, I was looking at those a raw batteries a week or two ago. They seemed a little long for our application though, and the capacity isn't very good. Capacity and size wise the Li-Ion 18650s are better, but the voltage is up there still. It will be interesting to see how long a 1200mah pack will go.

These types of rechargeable batteries aren't anything new.

these rx packs will be the same size as the rx stick nimh packs and hump packs.

yes i understand the voltage but 0.4volt wont make much of a fuss as recievers do have tolerences .

Besides being about to fast charge at 10A, what else makes them special? 1200mah is 1200mah no matter how you cut it. Too small for consideration.

With my radio I don't need a regulator to run LiPo. It's meant to run it. Sounds interesting though.

LiFe is the future...

but 1200mAh is definitely too low a capacity. 2000mAh sounds interesting though.

What kind of price bracket are we looking at? A decent 2200mAh + chinese regulator works out at $35 shipped max...

are these batteries based of the A123 LiFePo batteries?

then they are huge.

As far as I know that the only US distributor?
and they come in two cell flavors

18mm X 65mm 1.1ah
26mm x 65mm 2.3ah

They are big, only benefit is the lower nominal voltage and safer to use.


FROM A123 systems for 26650 cells

Nominal voltage: 3.3V
Nominal capacity: 2.3Ah
Core cell weight: 70 grams
Internal impedance: (1kHz AC) 8 mΩ typical
Typical fast charge current: 10A to 3.6V CCCV
70A continuous discharge
120A, 10 sec pulse discharge
Cycle life at 10C discharge, 100% DOD: over 1,000 cycles
