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.
* 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 thought I was making progress. I finally got everything but the flaps working with my transmitter and even was able to taxi the F4U on my drivway. It was windy yesterday so I did not try to fly. It rained today so I decided to try to get the flaps working -- good thing I decided to do this outside on my patio because the same battery that I've been using the past few days to test various servos and throttle CAUGHT FIRE!!!!!! Smoke all over the place and it melted a part of the plane. Now I don't know what to think or do. My wife has banned me and the plane from being inside the house and garage. I don't know why it would suddenly catch fire ... it is not like I was messing with any of the wires, I was simply adjusting the programming of the transmitter and testing to see the effect of my changes to try to get the flaps working.
Anyone able to tell me why you think this went up in smoke?
You get thermal runaways from either charging too fast, or discharging too fast (short circuit). You can get an internal short circuit if you bang the battery and cause the internal plates to touch. Just get a metal tray with sand to charge safely without setting the house on fire. There are also thermal protection bags that can be used to that end. You may have a short circuit in your ESC or motor.
I've connected every servo to the receiver and double checked all connections. When I connect the battery, the servos make a short clicking sound and the airplane's wing lights come on so I know I have power. I bind the receiver without a problem and remove the bind plug. Sounds good so far ... but then I can't get the transmitter to do anything more than the bind. There's a lot of switches, dials and sticks on this thing but nothing I do effects the plane. No throttle. No movement of rudder, etc. Retractable wheels don't move ... zip.
I don't have a clue what is wrong. Help ... please :-)
Well .. I'm making progress but still having problems. I have connected the ESC to Ch 3, attached the charged battery and have successfully did the bind process (red light on receiver is solid red) but I can't make the transmitter control power to the motor. While the bind seems to have worked, it acts like the transmitter is not communicating with the receiver.
Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong now?
I have not read the whole thread but... 1. make sure you have removed the bind plug, 2. make sure you ESC is connected to the Throttle output of the receiver. 3. When you connect the battery, make sure your throttle lever on your TX is set to minimum. 4. Connect some servos (ail, ele, rud) to the RX outputs to see if the servos react to your stick inputs. 5. If the servos react and the throttle does not, check your TX for reversed throttle or trim settings that may cause your TX to send a non-zero throttle signal.
ok some more info. I looked closely at the manual for the Turnigy 9x and there is a diagram showing a "power switch" with multiple connectors. One goes to the battery, another goes to the receiver.
I DON'T have that power switch .. is this teh ESC you are talking about??? Was it suppose to come with the Turnigy 9X?? Is that my problem? How do I get one?
Let me try again. Looking at the F4U the battery connection is easy - connector on battery matches the one in the plane. What I don't understand is how to charge the battery. I do have crocodiles on the charger and black to black & red to red makes sense to me. What I don't understand is how to make the crocodile connection unless I simply stick on half of each crocodile into the round hole (black/black & red/red) that is part of the battery connector???
Next I don't know what you mean by ESC (speed controller) or I didn't get one. The battery has a female 4 pin connector and the receiver is 3 pin. I have no wire harness or anything with a 4 pin connector to attach to the battery.
What am I missing???
on battery has a female 4 pin connector - is balance connector - need insert to socket on charger. how ocnnect battery with charger (use crocodiles) need to bite a crocodile for the terminal. that there was contact.
Have a Turnigy 9X transmitter & receiver. Hobbyking recommended IMAX B6AC charger which I got. Also recommended Turnigy nano-tech 2.2 2200mAh 25-50 battery to work with this receiver and my Durafly F4U.
Problem: Connector on battery does't mate with any of the wires provided with the charger.
Problem: Connector on battery doesn't mate with the 9x receiver.
Battery was recommended by HobbyKing but it must be wrong because I can't charge it and it won't connect to receiver.
I'm new to RC flying and need help!
Yes you can use this with your 9xr. The 9xr looks for a battery of 3S with 2200mAh which this is. The only difference between this and the actual 9xr battery is the 9xr battery has some type of internal protection to protect the radio, so essentially I believe it shuts down before voltage gets too low, but you can set voltage alarms on the 9xr to prevent that. I use these lipos with my 9xr and it works fine
Hi Michael, Yeah, they're great packs. The bonus is that this LiPo is almost always available for a little over $10 with a buddy code. The best site for finding the codes is "hk.rc-international.info/swarm" and if you do a search within the site for "2200mah" you'll see this LiPo. Just click on it and it'll drop into your cart on the HK site. You're limited to buying no more than 3 at a time. Cheers, EA
stupid sing post services... bought 2 of these a month ago and still waiting for them.. hobbyking did a real good job of shipping them the day after I bought them but I think they should use another transporter than singpost... it never been so long with swissair.
Hi freakqc, Are you not able to purchase from HobbyKing's US warehouse? It would make things go a lot quicker. I had the opposite problem, with SwissAir taking twice as long as SingPost because the item had to go to Europe before coming all the way back to Australia. Patience is a virtue! Cheers, EA!
Hi freakqc, What a pain to know you have a warehouse so close but HK can't figure out how to write up the invoice with the same low values they put on their invoices from the international warehouse. Cheers, EA!
Hi Isaac, If your charger only requires you to plug in the JST-XH balance plug (white one w/4 wires) then you can definitely charge this battery the same way you would any other LiPo. If you have to connect both leads from the battery to your charger you will need the correct adapter cable. Go to the "Chargers & accessories" menu above left and select "charge leads" from the sub-menu. You should find the correct adapter lead in there. Cheers, EA!
Well yeah its out in the field, at home i charge them with normal charge 2.2A and every 4th or so balanced.
But out in the field i will have down time if i do that, since its almost 50min to charge normally with 2.2A.
So i charged with 4A today when i was out flying and worked like a charm, then i did about 20-25min flytime with the stock bixler 2 and a charge took about 30min. So with 3 batteries im ok :)
Im guessing it should be ok to charge with 4A since thats under 2C and the nano's being marked as max 5c. So between 4 and 5A should be ok im guessing
Hi Daniel, The big advantage of the nano-tech line of LiPos is the max 5C safe charge rate .... "safe" being the critical term. Most LiPos are at risk of being damaged if charged at higher than 1C. Push them too hard and a damaged LiPo is the least of your worries, as the battery could go exothermal and cause a fire. You've gotten good advaice from Steeve and Mike. With the nanot-techs, you should limit your fast charging sessions to those times when there is a real benefit (i.e. at the flying field) but charge them at <2C at home just to be sure you're not shortening their useful life. Cheers, EA!
you can but it is not recommended, personally I will never charge over 1c=2.2a. If you are at the field then 4A will be justifiable but at home use lipo balance mode at 2.2A, 3s(11.1v). I have heard of normal turnigy lipos (2200mah 20c 3s) exploding abnormally at 2c=4.4amps.
The weight on the description is for shipping.. Obviously they have to add a little bit of weight for the little boxes they're in when they ship it off. All items usually weigh less than shown in the desc. Hope this helps..
hmm.. well, might not apply to all cases. In the end, with that little difference to the given weigh description, it doesn't guarantee the pack is bad. Still the best way to verify this is to check it yourself.. If it's all balanced and the capacity is right, then you're good to go :) ~Cheers
When wiring batteries in parallel or series you must use the make and type of cells,also best to use batteries that are similiar in age or number of cycles,not good to use a battery that has had a lot of cycles and put it with a new battery
Here 25 means the constant current of 25xc can be drawn out, and momentarily upto 10 sec a current of 50Xc can be drawn out. Using the battery under this limit will ensure proper battery life and safety of your model and your self. Enjoy.
Ok, so if I have a 25-50C battery and am only taking 11C out of it thats perfectly fine for the battery right? Just trying to help nut-out why my battery pack looked slightly swolen a couple days ago. maybe it was just the heat...
you can use 8*AA, or ZIPPY Flightmax 2500mAh Transmitter Pack (Futaba/JR), also Turnigy 2650mAh 3S 1C LLF Tx Pack (Futaba/JR) and HobbyKing 1500mAH LiFe 3S 9.9v Transmitter pack and Rhino 2620mAh 3S 11.1v Low-Discharge Transmitter Lipoly Pack. the choice is yours :)
Hi Ellis, This is a great choice for the Corsair. It's the standard size/shape for a 2200mah/3S. Best of all, you can get them for under $11 with a buddy code. Just go to "*******hk.rc-international.info/swarm" and type "2200mah" into the Search box. You'll see them for $10.27. Cheers, EA!
Just AWESOME performance. I am using this battery on my 28 inch Mig-29 Foamy. Plenty of power. Using it wil 30 Amps ESC. Works great. Battery does not even get warm @30 amps discharge. good value for money and worth a buy. I can charge this at 10 amps using my icharger. get full in less than 15 mins. Great battery at a great price.
Internal Resistance 16 / 13 / 14 miliOhm per cell. This corresponds to cca 12C battery - 27 A continuous. Cheapest Turnigy 20C has better performance

Everybody wait a minute. This battery is 16mm LONGER than the ones we are all using. It won't even fit in a Typhoon and will change the center of gravity on all Parkzone planes. Anyone who has used this with Parkzone, does it work? Any mods needed? I also can not believe 15C charge rates listed, think it is a misprint, should be 5C. I bet these are rebranded Hyperions or something.

Got the nano tech 2200mah 3s on Dec 3 2010. Put it on my HK eco6-10. Discharge at 5a and recharge at 10a but overallvoltage show 12.58. C1-4.21 C2-4.19 C3-4.18. Will work the battery and rewrite the review.

Well come to think of it, it may actually be a benefit in the Parkzone Trojan. Since that bird is nose heavy, this longer battery might get a little weight farther back.
