More than just a fancy name. TURNIGY nano-tech lithium polymer batteries are built with an LiCo nano-technology substrate complex greatly improving power transfer making the oxidation/reduction reaction more efficient, this helps electrons pass more freely from anode to cathode with less internal impedance.
In short; less voltage sag and a higher discharge rate than a similar density lithium polymer (non nano-tech) battery. For those that love graphs, it means a straighter, longer curve. For pilots it spells stronger throttle punches and unreal straight-up performance. Excellent news for 3D pilots!
Unfortunately with other big brands; numbers, ratings and graphs can be fudged. Rest assured, TURNIGY nano-techs are the real deal, delivering unparalleled performance!
Suited to the following models: ALIGN T-REX450, E-flite Blade 450 3D, BEAM E4, MSH Protos Mini, Furion 450, ThunderTiger E325/Mini Titan SE, Caliber 450V, CALIBER 400, RAVE 450, GAUI 330S
* The nano-core technology in lithium ion batteries is the application of nanometer conductive additives. 1) The nanometer conductive additives form ultrastrong electron-conducting networks in the electrodes which can increase electronic conductivity. 2) These additives create a superstrong ability for imbibition in the carrier liquid to supply more ion channels. This improves the ability of ion transmission and ion diffusion. Through improving electronic conductivity and ion transmission, the impedance is reduced and the polarization of high rate discharge decreases greatly.
Advantages over traditional Lipo batteries. Power density reaches 7.5 kw/kg. Less Voltage sag during high rate discharge, giving more power under load. Internal impedance can reach as low as 1.2mΩ compared to that of 3mΩ of a standard Lipoly. Greater thermal control, pack usually doesnt exceed 60degC Thickness swelling during heavy load doesnt exceed 5%, compared to 15% of a normal Lipoly during heavy load. Higher capacity during heavy discharge. More than 90% at 100% C rate. Fast charge capable, up to 15C on some batteries. Longer Cycle Life, almost double that of standard lipoly technology.
I've found these batteries work fine if they don't get too hot in flight, and you store them at half charge instead of full. Storing them at full charge for just a few days starts to degrade them, and leads to puffing.
Sorry to hear that. I have 50 Nanotechs of all sizes and some with well over 100 cycles. none have failed me yet. I have found that you should do a discharge and slow balance charge before using them for the first time. All of mine have come with 1 cell out of balance.
Nanotechs are by far the most popular battery in my club by a long way.
My 3 packs came at perfect storage charge. My first 5 flights with them on my Furion 450 were limited to 4 minutes. I'm sport flying the packs with no hard 3D and yesterday 2 of them puffed after about the 15th flight mark. 4 other flyers have had the more or less the same experience. Bad batch?? Very disappointed in these batteries.
Could be a bad batch. You are not the first to have this issue as I am sure you have read on this site. Might I suggest giveing the 70-130 c rated batteries a try . I totally understand once bitten twice shy but I use these types for my EDF's so very similer AMP draw. Might I also suggest you check and see if your "puffed" batteries will charge to and hold capacity. Nano's are known to swell a bit from gassing and still be just fine.
Well I did charge the 2 puffers and they seemed to charge OK but it makes me a little nervous when a pack looks like these. So have you had any of these gas swelling packs? And no, I haven't read anything about this problem with Nanotechs. But a puffed up pack is far from normal,IMO. I have a bunch of Zippy 3s packs that have over 200 charges on them and I still get an easy 5 minute flight with them. Of course, they're always out of stock otherwise I would have stuck with them.
Bought 3 of these for my exi 450 pro. They say suitable for the Align 450? Anyone use them with one? 115mm in length seems too long and won't fit under the hood :( Been dealing with health issues, docs and tests and had my head in my back pocket I guess. They haven't arrived yet, but have a bad feeling I screwed the pooch?
Do you have a tester you can plug it into to check the levels of each cell? You balance charged it I'm guessing, so I'd check it to make sure each cell is at least within limits. I'd also double check the connector to make sure it is soldered on proper.
I just ordered a cell tester so ill check when it gets here. I alwasy balance charge them at 1C and at the end it says 4.2v for each cell. The connector is the stock one that came with it. One of the reasons i bought this pack was so i didn*t have to redo the connector. Dont know whats going oin but its driving me nuts. My Skylipo 40C 2200 pack works fine with the same plane and is charged the same as these.
that is weird. I've six or seven of these now, and knock on wood...not a problem with any of them. What will be curious to see is after you get the cell tester, check the cell levels after you've run the battery in a plane* then lets see if they are discharging evenly or not. Course not much you'll be able to do with a bad battery, but maybe you can at least find where the gremlin is hiding. You'll also be able to test it while putting a load on it to see if its taking a big drop in amp suddenly.
Finally got some time and the tester. all cells were 4.2 before i tested. Plugged it into the plane and gave it full throttle. They now provide barely enough lift to lift the plane :( before they would damn near rip the plane out of my hands. after about 10sec of full power the cells read 4.18 4.17 4.18. So no huge difference in the voltage. not sure whats going on with them.
Also use a watt meter between the battery and the ESC. Eflite makes one as well as astroflight and it will tell you your voltage, current and watt draw as you throttle up your motor. You could check to see if you have a voltage drop under load this way.
All I know is that we run these batteries in everything from Assassin combat wings that fly at 80 mph, to my Radian Pro and Easy Star Gliders, to my Flat Foamy 3D planes , and even my war birds. Never had any problems with them. I balance charge them at 1c and try and break in new batteries carefully for the first three or four cycles. After that I use them normally. The ones I got over a year ago are just now starting to tell me its time to replace em, Mind you I fly anywhere from 4-6 days aweek on average. As far as I am concerned these are great batteries if they are used correctly
I absolutely love these batteries. I power my Strykers with them and will have many ESC cut out below 3.80 per cell flights. The battery’s bounce right back and are reliable. The connectors are of excellent quality and if you use deans you can make a pig tail using a deans and a XT60 male connector. Don’t remove them. Use them! Using a Eagletree Airspeed Expander V3, I was able to fly my Stryker at a mere 117 mph, downwind, at a 45 deg angle. “THAT’S COOKING BABY”
I cant deny there great batteries... bbbbuuuuttt... Ive been buying them since they were introduced... I have a dozen or so that I bought at about $10ea... so its very hard to swallow that they could jump up to $18 over night.... just sayin'
the final price was never the problem its that they doubled in price over night... this is no different then when there charging $10 shipping on a $5.15 flat-rate USPS box... im a manufacturer/distributer and if I decided one day to double the price on an item, for sure my customers would be questioning why...
Hands down the best battery at any price. Does not even get warm when run hard in my Trex 450 clone. With 8C max charge rate, you can recharge quickly at the field while flying as well. I love these.

thank you turnigy ,great lipo used so far in brushless 1/10 truck mad power, my hk450mt very nice power in the heli,i have 3 packs they all get used in whatever im running that day ,,super good power on my airfoilz 540 foamy plenty of power for hovering and vert pull outs..i get them warm but not hand heaters no puffing yet balance is spot on.damn hobby king u rule!!!!

Have 5 so far for the Blade 450. Works as other reviewers mentioned. Also early on with my new Heli I had an issue with batteries sliding up into the motor rubbing a hole in them. These nano-tech batteries are built better with more protection around the cells then the eFlite batteries. Killed an eFlite right away having this happen, lucky it didn't damage my bird. With the nano-tech it only has minor damage to the plastic wrap and foam protector, not the cell itself. Plan to buy many more!! Great product and very fast shipping from the US Warehouse on to the West Coast.
