Turnigy AA LSD 2400mAh Low Self Discharge (ready to use)
Low self discharge AA NiMH battery. Great for transmitters, fuel pumps, glow starters or other low discharge electronics that you want to use over several months or years without having to recharge.
Low-Self-Discharge NiMH batteries are a new technology that prevent the battery from slowly losing it's charge over time. In fact these LSD batteries can stay charged for over a year without losing more than 30% of their charge. Normal NiMH batteries would lose nearly 100% of their charge over 12 months.

We guarantee our cells are true to their capacity! Sadly battery marketing is an evil game, with overstated capacity being the industry norm. Generally speaking, battery factories will suggest vendors to overstate the capacity by at least 30%, marking 1800mAh cells with 2300mAh labels or more! While this might work for toy stores, such marketing tactics wouldnt survive 1 week in our store with customer feedbacks and reviews, and thats why we guarantee our TURNIGY 2400mAh NiMH cells to be at least 2400mAh!
Hi ArduinoFlyer, There's no absolute rule as to how high the discharge rate can be with NiMH cells, but the most common number people seem to go by is 10C, or 24A in the case of these cells. At 10C you would get about 5-6 minutes of run time before the voltage started to drop off sharply. Cheers, EA!
You should not draw far more than 2A out of these batteries. They are normally used as receiver packs for small planes. Do not operate more than nano or analog mid-size servos on it. Otherwise you take the risk of a brown out.
You should not charge NiMh in an accucel in a battery holder.
NiMh should be charged with individual charging channels, which the accucel will not give you. Unless you plan to charge only one at a time, get a proper NiMh charger.
Arne, the accucell has a NiMh programm and is a proper NiMh-charger. I charge my ones with that kind of charger since two years now without any problem. My TX-battery on futaba-tx is an NiMh, and is very good after 2 years of intensive use.
It has a NiMh program, but it is made for matched battery packs. Chaging several NiMhs are best accomplished using a charger with separate charging channels for each battery. The Accucel 6 does not provide that. This has nothing what so ever to do with the fact that the Accucel 6 ha a NiMh program.
Hi Airwolf, These are an honest 2400mah at a price that's significantly lower than the Eneloop cells, so I would go with these if I had to choose. I used them to make up a 9.6V Tx pack and I get 8-10 1 hour flying sessions from them before they drop to 10v. Cheers, EA!
These are long last NiMH, these are not Lipo, which are usually what are sold as good for high comsumption electronics like cameras and MP3 players. These batteries are designed to keep their charge over a long storage time or a slow discharge use in some thing like tv remotes that don't have a high draw but are expected to hold their charge for a long time.
These cells, like all NiMH LSD (or ready to use) batteries are great to replace standard NiMH batteries and in most cases alkaline batteries. They can deliver high currents without reducing their useful capacity, unlike standard alkaline batteries. And as already mentioned they keep their charge for a long time (more than 70% after a year).
Hi Lauschi, I haven't tested these cells specifically, but most of the reference literature states 2C as the approximate safe/reliable maximum discharge rate for NiMH cells. I would expect it to be approx. 5A (2 x 2.4A capicity) for these cells, as they are no different from other NiMH cells except for their low self-discharge rate. Cheers, EA!
depends on the charger, I have an automatic that charges them up in a few hours. If your charger is not automatic, you have to look at the amperage the charger puts out and divide the capacidence (2400 Mah) and the result is how long it should take to charge.
Hi stepaway, They usually arrive with about 80%-90% charge on them, so no more than a few hours of charging time should be necessary. It's actually better, according to various references, to cycle them up/down a few times before you leave them fully charged for any length of time. If you're going to use them in a Tx, for example, then fully charge them, turn the Tx on for several hours (or go flying), then charge them again. After several cycles they will begin to hold more charge for longer periods. Cheers, EA!
You need to charge through. It is best if the charging is limited by voltage drop. Another way to insert the charger and check the temperature as soon as the hot -40-50 degrees, all of the charge is over. This is an extreme method, but it works if you have a bad (cheap) charger. If you have a smart charger (Accucel 6 or same) simply put it on charge and wait for it to end.
This is a very good batteries with real capacity.
the way is to send a mail to Customer service asking to cancel the order.
Check on very to of screen "contact" there you find how to contact them.
another solution could be to use the "chat".
yes they are chargeable. just use a standard NIMH charger. The nice side of these batteries are that they maintain the charge for a very long time if not in use. So not to be afraid that you did not charge your transmiter or hand lamp or still camera or "kid's" toys.
you need a AA www.link a Charger such as the ECO 50, or Accucel, any of the Turnigy Chargers which does Lipo and Nimh.
You can also buy AA holders for different numbers of batteries, depending what you need. I bought four, one for 1 AA one for 2 AA one for 3 AA, and one for 4 AA. Hobbyking sells the one for 4 AA's.
Hello Alex this are supposed to have 80% of capacity after 1 year. This is very good. The capacity is 2400mA so they still have 1900mA after 1 year.almost as good as dry battery and you can charge them when you want. So no more problem if you charge 2 weeks ago :-) Enjoy flying
Hello Victor, as soon as they are available you can buy them. Just put them on your wish list and tick the "send email when available" Then you will know, but be quick as many are waiting for them. Enjoy flying
This are awesome batteries I use them with my RCA car transmitter the stay charged like regular alkaline or lithium batteries

You can only buy one of these batteries unless you pay for registered postage- Makes purchasing them VERY expensive. Postage for 8 batts on their own $14. If you include it with another order going registered almost doubles the postage cost.
Even though it's only a NiMH, they still apply the same 3000mah limit they use for lipos.
