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.
These claim a max charge rate of 10C.
My Quattro max's out at 5amp, so that's under 4C.
Works out to a little over 45min to fully blanace charge them. They don't even get warm. Very Kul.
How have they benefitted me? Here's my metric folks:
My videos on my Parrot AR Drone 2.0 went from an average of 10 minutes to 16 minutes.
(New shafts and replaced brass bushings with ball bearings too)
I invested about $250 in my charging system and a quintet of these batteries. I'm set.
Flew the drone at a charity fly in for almost two hours with five of these
and two stock Parrot packs before I had to break out the charger for the last half of the day.
They are good batteries. Balance charge is generally slower than a normal charge cycle. I have been using these batteries for a year and I only balance charge them every 10 or 20 cycles for the heck of it. The cells voltages never seem to go unbalanced on me (I check often). Mine charge in about 20-30 minutes using a regular charge mode on my ACCUCEL-6 at 4 amps.
Looking for replacement battery for a HobbyZone SuperCub which uses lipol 11.1v 1300mAh (14.43Wh) 15C 20C burst with EC3 connector.
Would this be a possible repalcement or any suggestion? I notice the differnce in discharge rates and burst
Meant to say a stock Align Trex 250 SE fitted with Hughes MD500 scale body? It would not need to fit the normal canopy but just wondered if it would be too much power or weight if it did fit with scale kit. Many Thanks
Yes it would charge at 10c =13A
But i always try to charge at a lower rate and all my lipos last for many years. (with store charge when not used)
Buy some more lipos instead and you will have more time to charge...
Question about the connector for charging.
I have a Thunder AC6 charger - and need a connector that will connect the battery XT-60 plug to the charging leads of this charger. The Thunder came with a bynch of different plugs - none of which fit this battery.
Do you have that adapter?
I'll just say mate BEST BATTERIES EVER MADE!! You can charge them 10c! obviously shortens batt life but it gives them some kick. I've gone to using two 3s batts in my erevo for unrivaled power and I also run a 4s in my Traxxas Bandit running Mamba Max Pro Castle creations set up and custom gearing. This Nanotech turned it into the fastest straight line dragster in the district South West Vic so far! ( no official club up here so hard to find competition) Clocked over 230kms more in it but har
No Roger you will be just fine. What will shorten battery life is over draining them below the low voltage threshold, or not balance charging them correctly. You risk damaging a potential low cell. Most batteries of this quality can handle 2c easily.
No, these cells are capable of handeling up to 10C of charge current safely. (that doesn't automaticly mean that they are fully charged whithin 6 minutes because charge current will drop nearing the end of the charge/balancing)
Charging a battery in good condition at 1C will always take about one hour. If you want to charge it in half an hour, you have to double the charging current. So if you want to divide the normal 1C charge time by 2 you have to multiply the 1C-rate by 2. First generation LIthium-Ion POlymer batteries could only take about 1C charge-rate maximum, so it took always at least one hour to charge them. Current Li-Po batteries have labels who say charging possible at 5-10-15C rate. These charging rates
Hiya guys, is this 45C-90C LiPo going to cook my components? (TurnigyPlush 40AmpBESC, TowerPro2409-12T motor, Turnigy9x8Cv2 reciever and a GWS 8060 propellor). 30C is the highest ive tried with this setup and 1300mAh is the max that will fit.
Hi LaserBeam, No this battery is not going to cook your components. The capacity (1300mah) is how much power you can extract from the
battery and the C rating (45-90C) is the speed which you can pull this power from the the battery without damaging it. www.link
Voltage is what will cook your components. If they are all rated for 3s use you will be fine.
Hey guys and gals,
I got those batterys, they are really, really good, got 1300 mA capacity, then the voltage decreases fastly. Overall load voltage is super!
If I need batterys again I defenitly will buy Turnigy Nano-Tech 45-90C!
