Zippy Flightmax Single Cell batteries deliver full capacity & discharge as well as being the best value batteries in the hobby market today! Ideal for light weight applications, a JST connection has been pre-installed eliminating the hassle of making single cell packs.
I have spend stacks of money on cheap charges which were the biggest mistakes in my hobby, for the fact of unbalanced charges not just ****py flying performance on the engine but also destroys the battery and in some cases my plane. If you are looking for something that is a least worth while would be getting a Turnigy A-6-10 200W Balance charger & discharger which is $38 which lasted me 2 years before i could start seeing slight power difficulties in charger and faulty alarms would sometimes bu
this is a very simple 1S LiPo. So your easiest option would be a USB computer charger, which you can buy quite cheaply. Or use The 1S chargers supplied with 1S Micro Planes and Helis Like Horizon Ultra Micro series, MCX, MSR, MCPX,120SR or Kysho mMinium series. You just need to solder or crimp an adapter to make the connectors fit..
Hope that helps
I'm not sure what type of charger you have but you can make a simple cable to trick your charger to think it has a 2 cell or 3 cell. You need 2 or 3 jst leads (female), a charge lead for charger either for a 2 cell or 3 cell. You solder the first JST lead (Pos)to the charge lead positive, the JST Neg lead to whatever color wire is next on the charging lead. If this is making a 2S battery, solder a Pos JST lead to the black wire you just soldered. Now attach the hanging NEG JST wire to the black charging lead. Now your charger thinks it has a 2 cell pack and you can charge it according your chargers specifcations. To make a 3 cell or larger just that pattern up(Pos)-(Neg/Pos)-(Neg/Pos)-(Neg). Now you can charge as many 1 cell batteries that you want. Dak
Your charger probably has a balance port and this is likely what you are referring to as your charger only has space for more than two. A 1S cell does not need to balance charge. Just put your charger in CHARGE mode and connect the main leads. It will charge just fine.
I bought these for mCP-x but they are very Long and Wide for MCP-x, would have to make custom mount it is not even close to original battery size. Also wafer thin so be careful you don't snap them in half.
Weight is around 9-10 grams.
FYI the factory battery on mCP-x is 7 grams.
You would need a Low voltage detector, listed on the side bar on the left side of the page, a voltage regulator (avalible at somwhere like radioshack or digikey) and an ipod usb cable that you could cut up and use as a connector. YOu would also want a on off switch so it wouldn't keep charging if it wasn't plugged in
1 thumbs up!
Batteries themselves are good. I tried these for mCP-x, not a good fit, they are large (length/width) but thin (just use rubber-band to hold them on). One has bent in a crash so be careful. They do work, even though they are about 2-3 grams heavier. The 30c does help, head speed stays fast. Would be better in a small plane or something like that, where it can be protected from crash damage.
