If you look at the product config table just above here you'll see Max Charge Rate (C) 2. C stands for capacity and the 2 means 2 times capacity. Capacity of this battery is 1550mah so you could safely charge it at 2 times that = 3100ma if you're in a hurry, if not I prefer to stick with 1C which in this case would be 1550ma ( 1.55amps).
Charge with 1.5 amp on a dedicated lipo charger.
Discharge up to 45 amp (30C), I would not go over 5 if it's just for discharging the battery for storage.
Make sure you have a dedicated lipo charger, this type of batteries can burn.
Who said Deans are produced in USA! Deans Company can of course produce their connectors whereever they like. You have used Dean plugs too long to understand that they belong to the graveyard. I came to my senses and so can you.
Sorry Mal .. you've misunderstood me, my comment was purely indicative that many RC parts and equipt. is now manufactured and sourced from China, possibly including US designed Deans plugs, although I don't know that that's true or not. However I fully intend to remove all the Deans plugs from my LiPos and ESCs and replace with the far superior, IMHO, EC3 type. Especially as the HobbyKing version is far cheaper than Deans ever were. Daffy.
I think it is because alot of aircraft come with ec3 plugs and, i've seen it from working in a hobby store, not very many people can solder very well. Or mabye the ec3 is cheaper, or it was a desicion on the companies part(Zippy) and not the distibutors(Hobby city). Lawyers?
i do'nt know what it was. i do know i changed all my stuff over to the xt60 plugs there a lot easier to connect and disconnect and no spring to bend or brake like on the deans t-plug and a child could solder them on first shot at trying. the worst thing about soldering new plugs is remembering to install the heat srink tubing be for you solder the wires on
Dean's Traxxas RC 3 XT 60, these are all good plugs and there is nothing wrong with any of them. I always tell people just to pick the plug that you like the best, the only reason that I use Dean is because I fly a lot of small aircraft helicopters and have very small cars and I need a small plug that fits in tight places. But that's what is great about a hobby, there is no opinion that is fact, it's all about how you do your hobby and what you want to do with it and whatever makes you happy.I will have to check out these XT 60 plugs however, I like the fact that you said there is no spring in them
no spring and there about the same size as a deans t-plug just a little bigger and alot easier to connect and disconnect thats why i changed all mine to the xt60 and all hk batteries now have them on them.. try'em you'll love them

7 thumbs up!
These fit nicely into the 1/16 e-revo. The only squeeze is the 12 awg wire coming through the wire opening, but even that isn't a major deal. Just do a balance charge as soon as you get them and you're good to go.
