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!
Suited to the following models: E-flite MCX, MCX2, MSR, Nano CP X
*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.
If you do the "Swapable battery mod" shown on RcGroups for this model you could use a variety of different batteries including this one. You do want to make sure you make it so you don't affect the center of gravity. With this larger battery It may have to be positioned under the model using velcro or something similar. I put one on my landing gear with a rubber band and it flew, but not very well. Maybe with the other battery out, it will be light enough. I think it will be too heavy though even with the other battery removed, but it will definitely fly.
I don't like complaining about batteries but THESE BATTERIES ARE TERRIBLE. I bought 4 and I've broken into one of them. On my Nano CPX I get 3:30 to 4 minutes out of the E-flite batteries and I only get 2 minutes out of the nano tech. It's almost like they're mislabled and they're only actually 100mah. Every other Nano tech battery has been outstanding, the 300mah on my mcpx, the 450Mah 2s on my 130x, the 850MaH 3s on my HK 250, but the 160Mah batteries were a huge disappointment.
Warning to all.
These now seem to come with some bodgy holographic sticker on the back.
If you plan to use velcro to hold the battery REMOVE THE STICKER or it'll fall off, generally in flight.
You have been warned.
I use these batteries in my Blade Msr and my Flyzone micro Dr1 Triplane and they have been working very well. I have had one go bad and puff on me, but that's out of 20 that I own. It is over 1 1/2 years old and has been used for many flights. In my experience they are Great Batteries
DiscountRaja, Well my friend thought the same as you and crammed them in, he now has stress marks on the frame and one cracked. Have to say they are held tight!!! I can only go by what I have seen. Your frame must be more flexible.
That is interesting. I tried them both ways up in my Nano CPX and they didn't want to go in. My friend's Nano had the same problem but his MCX appears to have a more flexible battery carrier even though it looks the same. I will suggest to him to try the batteries the other way up and see if he finds it better. Thanks. I have just warmed my carrier up with a hot air gun which solved the problem.
Hello Salasgr, the specificstion of nano cpx battery is:
150mAh 1S 3.7V 25C LiPo Battery
Product www.link oz (4.15 g)
Length: 1.47 in (37.5mm)
Width: 0.48 in (12.2mm)
Height: 0.22 in (5.5mm)
Maximum Continuous Discharge : 25C
Maximum Continuous Current : 3,75a
Based on that info, this 160 ma battery did not fit on nano cpx heli!
Hi Edney, im 100% sure that those batteries can fit on Ncpx's battery trace and they can perform very good using stock motor. The question is if someone has use them with Brushless motor..
Thanks anyway for your reply!
Hello. The most important for the batteries is if the esc can recognize the lipo type. If yout esc for the brushless motor can be settled for lipo, yes, you can use this battery. The esc is the responsable for the voltage control, avoiding the motor to use less than 3 v per cell from lipo batteries. If the cell voltage is less than 3v, problaby you will loose the batt.
These are too deep to fit the standard frame but I have used elasitic band to hold one in place and it gave a simular flight time. The frame could be modified with a little heat but I would stick to the stock items.
Yes, they are the correct size, weight and capacity. You can always experiment with higher capacity, but it will be a trade off between weight and flight times. If you use heavier batteries, the plane will also handle differently, so keep that in mind.
For those using these batteries on V911, I understand that these batteries can be used directly on the V911 new version. The battery charger that is supplied by WL toys for the new version - is that compatible with these batteries or do we need to buy a charger separately for these.
This battery works with a hk190? I tried to use one and my heli had problems in the tail motor, it began to turn just to the right and not to the left. When i restored the original battery it began to work normally.
You should be able to charge these are much higher than 1c with no problem. When I get mine I'll test them at 4C, but to be honest at $1.4 each , I don't really care, I just brought 10. If its gets warm then drop c rate on charge. I would say these can do 3 to 4c charges with litle life impactm but 10-15C I think is excessive and not req as 4C will give a 15 min charge time approx.
I really believe all of you should read more carefully. When bm2thirsty said ".2amp", this actually means the same as "0.2amps", or 200mAh, not 2Amps. As for the 15C charge rating given in the description - this is a general description put on all Nano-tech batteries and it clearly states "up to 15C on some batteries", which does not necessarily mean this particular battery.
Most of the nanotech are much less than 15C in the specs, (have a look a some) the A-SPEC nano-tech ones do state 8C charge rates. These will be less than 2-4C similar to most of the 25C charge rated nanotechs. *generally the higher discharge rate batteries are better quality and also have higher charge rates* However have to also take into account (in my experience with HK website) , many specs are incorrect on here.
If you purchase the lead HXT4M-125Mx6 then you will be able to charge up to 6 of these batteries from a good lipo charger.Something like the Turnigy Accucel-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charger w/ accessories or similiar will be good.
thx for the info. I have tested with a ECO SIX charger and the 1to6 cable. Does my though is correct to setup the charge amp to 0.2 multiply by the number of lipo connected and voltage to 3.7v. Something should be wrong somewhere a far as the charge takes 6 mins and stops with the FULL message. When I put it on the HK136 charger it still charge. When testing out of a charge with ECO SIX the speed of motors (on a HK136) is too slow, means lipo not harged. Any idea of whats going wrong ? - Thk u in advance for your advice - b rgds - Thierry
well my order said it weighed 2kg for 44.00 shipping well i weighed it before i opened it well it was 0.463 kg now that's 1.6kg short huh?charged 2kg 44.00 dollars shipping for 1/2kg man that's unreal.
is that why they are back ordered now? LOL
anyways i think its cause they way the calculate the weight is by if you order one, but they don't have any scaling for the weight, so it just multiples the weight directly...
wish they did it different that way people could get more stuff with there orders,same thing when it say's you get a extra box with some orders but i never see that extra box yet on any of my orders but the weight is added,never figured that out either but they have it set that way i guess for there reasons,lol like you said haa!
I had a friend that ordered a lot of small light items and the check out wanted him to get a large box and pay for around 2KG of weight. He simply processed his cart with a payment pending status and contacted the HK chat and they adjusted the shipping for him. Not sure if they would do this for ever one but if you think you are getting a bad deal just ask, HK can only say no.
4 thumbs up!
Testing in Blade MCX, charge on Cellpro 4, new Nano-tech 160mAh .. :-)
brought 10 off these for the price. using in my msr and you can notice the extra power from these over the standed batteries.getting more head speed and has made it more stable with the head speed and more weight on the bottem.had to dr the battery holder to get them to fit. great product will order more.now to get some 6s packs in these for my trex 500

Test results using an mSR, max static load (1.3-1.6A). Full charge down to 3.1V.
Total energy (proportional to flight time at a given power level):
Tried the Turnigy 160's and they work great in my MSR - at a great price. Running two of them in parallel - for 15-20min flight times. Waiting for the nano's to come in so I can order to try. Can't beat the price. They are a bit bigger than the standard 160's so mods will have to be done to make them fit.

Bought 7 for my mcx, took 2 months on backorder. When got them, they are a lot bigger, they are mostly longer though, in the reviews it says that they wont fit in the mcx without mods. I just slid one in, no mods nessasery.
