A true 35C A-Grade battery. Dont be fooled by Chinese vendors selling 20C packs as 30C or more. This is a true A-Grade 35C Lipoly pack. Spec.Minimum Capacity: 2200mAhConfiguration: 3S1P / 11.1v / 3CellConstant Discharge: 35CPeak Discharge (10sec): 45CPack Weight: 199gPack Size: 113 x 34 x 25mmCharge Plug: JST-XH Discharge plug: XT60 PRODUCT ID: T2200.3S.35
I want to put these in my Parkzone flyers. Are these batteries XT60 male or female ends? Just making sure I know what adapter to get to plug into the EC3 connector. I'm not changing the EC3 as I have a few EC3 batteries already.
Hey Eric the lipo side of these are female XT60s. Like you I run all my lipos on EC3, EC4, and EC5's. I found the best thing to do is buy EC connectors here. You can get a 10 pack of male and female for less than the cost of 1 pair of HH EC3s.
Eric like you I fly primarily all of my lipos with EC3 connectors. My solution was to buy turnigy batteries as they came, not re wire them but just buy a no wire add on that would convert it. Hobbyking sells them in packs of three or single or you can also get one from eBay. By using this method, your lipo can work for both ********( or any Horizon Hobby product)and hobbyking products alike!
Hello John. For this battery The max charge rate is 4C. However, When i did this, i found the battery only charged about 80% to what the max capacity should be. I recommend you balance the battery using 1C: In doing so I was able to get the full 100% out of my battery.
Hope it helps!
Can someone explain what exactly the charge rate means. What is the difference between 1C, 2C, 3C etc. When setting up my charger, does this mean I can select 1, 2, 3 amps respectively? Example: battery X has a 5C max charge rate. Do I set my charger to charge at 5A, and if battery Y has a max charge rate of 2C does this mean I should adjust my charger to 2amps?
What the notation of 1C,2C, or 3C etc denotes is that you can charge a given battery at different levels based on there "C" rating. For example, if a 2200mah pack had a 1C charge rating, that means you shouldn't charge it at more than what it is** 2200mah or 2.2amps. If the same battery were a 3C battery, it means that you could charge it at 3 times the mah or amp rating. This would allow you to charge it at 6600mah or 6.6amps which is a 3C charge rate for a 2200mah lipo! This effectively cuts the time needed to charge the battery to a third of what it would be at 1C. However, this can be rough on the battery, even if it is rated for that level and thus "kills" the battery faster. All that being said however, there are several people on this site and others that I know personally that have charged their lipo's at higher than average "C" rates with 100's of cycles... Hope this all makes sense and helps you out. :)
i simply love it when there are people who actually know what they are talking about and explain it very well. AARON......LEVIROOSKIE is 100% correct in his info to you and he explained it very well adding that there are others who do charge at higher rated c and get 100's of cycles with the length a battery lasts (discharging during flight,i.e run time)these days buy 2 batteries and you wont be in a hurry for the other to charge i always say plug in balance plug every charge balance at minimum every 10 charges and if you can dont charge over 1.5c best of luck and this is a great hobby with great people
Great battery, perfect for all 3s 2200mah applications. I use mine in the Durafly line and they work great.

I have purchased many batteries from HK and all have been great. I decided to purchase two of these 2200 mah batteries and when they arrived one was a little puffy. Since I really didn't have my plane finished that used this battery, I didn't bother charging or testing it (my mistake). After finally (2 weeks) getting around to charging it, one cell is completely dead and doesn't even show up on a battery tester. Hopefully, this is my one bad apple.

Bought this battery to go with my EDF, worked exactly as expected! I found that I had to balance mine a couple times to be able to normally charge it and get the full potential out of the battery. The only thing h could say bad about this is that the battery connector is absolute trash. I recommend that either YOU as the buyer buy adapters with the battery or just buy a battery with no plugs at all. Other than that, this battery is GREAT! and i would recommend it to anyone who needs a quality lipo at a fair price!
