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.
Can anyone tell me what rate i can set my charger to discharge at, the battery says it has a discharge rate of 25C but when i plug it it all into charger it's asking me for the Amp rate, currently coming up with 2A (i have the battery leads plugged in aswell as the little white plug
It's the battery on this page, 3300mah, upon reading online, it's says not to go above 1C so im guessing 1C is 3.3A. I haven't discharged it yet, it has done 4 balanced charges, and from what i have read i dont need to discharge the battery when i charge it, is this correct?
1C, or 3.3A in this case is the safe CHARGING rate and 25C is the constant safe discharge rate (25x3.3=82.5A in this case).
You should have your packs fully charged (4.2 V per cell) before your intended application (eg powering an electric motor on a plane or heli), but you should not store them for a period longer than a few days at that voltage.
So if you charged them, but did not use them for a few days, then you might want to discharde some of its capacity on the charger.
Your charger should also have a feature to charge your bateries for storage, which should be set at around 3.75-3.80V per cell.
Discharging lipo batteries below 3.5V per cell should be avoided, despite the fact that 3V per cell is considered a flat battery voltage.
I just bought my first Nano-tech 3.3ma. HOW do you charge these things??? I tried charge, balance,and fast charge mode and it alarms and message flash "connection break" If I check this with a hand held per cell voltage checker it reads all three cells, NO problem. I have only had this problem once when a lipo didn't make a good connection to the charger with the balance plug. I have checked the plug 5x..... HELP !!!!
If you check each individual cell at the balance connector, you may have a bad/cold solder joint at the main plug. If your charger plug connector isn't in good repair that would also give you the connection error. I've had the individual connections inside the batteries balance plug come loose. Plug everything in and force each balance wire down to the connection and try it again. Hope this helps.
I have checked all connections charge and balance plugs with a meter and found no breaks???? I just finished charging four other lipo's with the charger and have checked the charger plug. Didn't know if the nano's construction has something to do with it???
Hi, this battery charger will be a great one for your lipos www.link has an integrated power supply (110v/240v), it can work on car battery too (12v).
Salut, Ce chargeur de batterie sera parfait pour vos lipos www.link possède une alimentation intégrée compatible (110v/240v).

I've just received these lipo's.
I can see they come with a 4mm bullet connector, equal to an EC5 connector.
Question is, do I really need 4mm connectors? Or is it still save to use EC3 connectors?
I'll be using these lipo's on a hexacopter. The motors will never draw that much current anyway.
Does anyone know?
Hi Jumper..i've done the exact same thing with 3 of my Turnigy 14.8v 3000 30-40c batterys, that i put in my E-flite yak 54 with(EC3). i have never had any problem with overheating of the cables or any signs that would indicate that there would bee any danger of overheating
I have this type of lipo on my Gaui Hurricane 450 ... They are connected in series and provide 22 V and 3300 Mah for a comsumption of 50 A approximately .... and I use T-connector that let the power go without any problems.
Battery pack it self is 20x 43 x131 mm but the connecting cables make it impossible to fit the battery in a space of same dimensions
Actually 149x 54x 23 mm is the advised space required to fit the battery and the connecting cables :)
Mine unfortunately just had 5 charges. Then, the 3rd cell does not longer hold charge. Voltage will drop to 3.5 volts as soon as I run the motor for about 30 seconds. I have a few Nano-Techs, but with no problem at all. I called HK, but warranty is only for 30 days. I have to order another one I guess because I don't want to go back to 2C charge rate anymore, which means I have to buy and carry few Li-POs.. With Nanos, I Only need one of each kind. If it fails again, then, I may have second thoughts next time.

9 thumbs up!
I just soldered up a connector, from 4mm bullet to EC3, for my E-Flite Apprentice. After soldering everything, I found out that the 4mm bullet connectors on the battery are on backwards. I went to charge this battery to find an error on my Hyperion charger warning "reversed poloarity." HobbyKing, you've soldered the connectors on wrong!

This has lots of power. You notice directly the lower innner resistance, it gives a lot of oompf compared to the cheapest. High value for money.
