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.
Hello , I just ordered 4 of these batteries for my heavy lifter hexacopter and would like to know if I need a bigger charger than the one I got to charge these batteries as my charge only goes up to 6s 5000mAh? Can I charge these batteries with it on 6s 5amp although would take longer or I can not?
Pedro, yes, lower amperage is fine, and, as you said, it will just take longer. I am in a similar boat, but am upgrading my charger to a 1000Watt charger, and I would recommend the same for you. As you can see, the nano-tech batteries allow higher charge rates (up to 5C) which means you could charge it with up to 40A to get faster charges (though I read that it is recommended not to do the higher rate all the time). At that rate, you need a 1000W charger, or alternatively, you could do multiple batteries in parallel and charge at lower rates. Either way, a 1000W charger would be recommended for big batteries like this.
I love these batteries for my Catrike Expedition Etrike. In an 18s4p configuration they come hot off of the charger at 75.1V with 32 Ah of range (about 50 miles) and can scoot the trike down the street at 40 mph. Barely get warm doing it. I run with a GM Pro 901 hub motor, Infineon 72V 40A controller. Monitoring the battery with a Cycle Analyst. Nice simple and reliable setup.

I have 2 sets of these running in series for 12s 8000mah in some huge EDF jets, I'm pulling between 136 and 150 amps on them and I work them hard. These packs are awesome, they are lightweight and can handle serious loads, even under intense loads they hang in at 3.5 volts per cell. The fact that they are 25c is awesome because they remain lite but can handle 200 amps. Once they are back in stock I am picking up a 3rd set!!!!
