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!
* 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.
Yes, I believe you would find the performance acceptable at first. The problem is that after ten to twenty cycles things have gone seriously wrong with all of the packs purchased by at least four members of my flying group. We all feel ripped-off over paying the premium. Our recent purchases have been from the cheaper ranges and we've not been so disappointed.
Hi Chris. At the time we were purchasing, these packs were promoted as top quality. All our group have balance chargers and know how to look after their packs. The problem for everybody was pack swelling. Mine (3 packs) started to swell during and after discharge just slightly at first after 10-20 cycles of "good behaviour". The amount of swelling increased over time to the point of significant risk. I used to use the fridge and freezer etc plus all the tricks to keep this under control but in the end I ditched them in the interests of domestic safety. One of our group had the swelling happen on the first flight!. Various folk found their packs could not be balanced either. We even tried taking a few packs and removing stable cells so that rebuilt packs could be soldered or operated as 2S packs. Now, no one on our field uses any nanotech and we remain highly sceptical of any claims about some packs being premium products. I hope you get a good run from yours. I advise register their guarantee numbers and return them on the first sign of trouble. We were too trusting and no-one bothered to register. We just get the cheap stuff so we can throw away the duds. Guess what? No duds, so far.
Bought one to try it out in my profile yak. It is worth noting that mine weighs 112gr which is less than the stated 119gr. I flew with it one and recharged it. Found the capacity to be correct 1300 mah. Very satisfied with it so far.

Turnigy nano-tech 1300mah 3S 25~50C Lipo Pack
I have these in my cart. Are these compatible with the "BIRD OF TIME" 3 meter glider? I will be using this to launch the glider. I am getting back into RC flying after 5 years away. Changing the glider into electric from glow.
What charger do I need?
Thanks, Gary Isaak
Hi. I would be careful with that lipo. I have had two and many of my flying group have used larger capacity nano-techs, as well as the 1300. We are all convinced that the nano-techs we all received were not worth the prices asked. The majority of the group have had to dispose of these packs prematurely. We've found them disappointing. Our latest fad has been buying Zippy - they last just as long and they do not puff!
Yes, the perfect pack doesn't exist. But the Zippy is priced well below the nano tech - you can afford to get the odd imperfection. The major problem for our group was that we universally discovered operational difficulties with the nano techs across all of us. And this contrasts with the advertised claims of high quality control. A whole bunch of them have now been disposed of and yet some of us have 4 yr old Turnigy packs still going reasonably well in spite of their age. I suppose we like the Zippy at the moment because of price and, thus far, because they seem to perform okay.
Some of these nana-techs are rated for recharging at up to 5C - that would equate to 6.5 amps for this pack. Personally, I keep to 1C - so I'd charge at 1.3A - and in so doing aim for longer battery life.
The C rate and amps mean the same thing. It's just a different calculation. 1.3A=1C. If you read the discription above, it states that the batteries can be charged at a max of 5C wich is 6.5 amps. 1.3 amps x 5C= 6.5. Hope this makes sense. If not, google lipo c rating for charging and it should explain it better. The easiest way is to take the mah of your battery and place a decimal after the first number. This will give you the best charge amps for any betters to maximize life and charge cycles.
It fits my Ar Drone 2.0 perfectly! I get around 13 min. of flight time. Burst is very good too.
2 thumbs up!
This one is very cool! Charging is very fast. If you have 3 like that, you can fly endlessly!

My jet rocketed out of the planet with this battery.. wish it had to same run time as a normal lipo 1300mah 20c though.. My flight just broke over 2 min. and had to emergency land. Has anyone else, notice the time change?

Awesome Battery - I tried them in my Art-Tech Eurofighter and they are MUCH better than stock 1300 LiPos. On the Wattmeter Standard 1300 mah Li Po starts at 280 watts and is steady at 220 after 2 minutes at full power - These Nano Tech batteries start at 340 watts and are stable at 260 after 2 minutes.. and they are lighter so the plane performs much better overalll.. I will order more as soon as stock arrives!
Weight of this pack is 123g. Main wire is 12AWG!! This is to much for it. Exactly the same i have with my 3s 2200 35-70C nano-tech. Would be better if there will be 16AWG!! Performance is excelence. 11.1V after 12 minutes of hard flight and still a lot of power to climb verticall.

I Can't fault theese packs. I ordered 3 for my Radian pro. They arrived carefully packed & well balanced. (3.90v per cell on all 3 packs)
