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: ALIGN T-REX450, E-flite Blade 450 3D/400 3D, BEAM E4, MSH Protos Mini, Furion 450, ThunderTiger E325/Mini Titan SE, Caliber 450V.
* 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.
This is a 25 C battery, that means max current drain for the battery is 25C*1800mAh/1000=45A. So with 4 motors which max amps are 18A you have a max current of 18*4 =72A. Your current drain demanded by the motors is more than the current that the battery can handle. You should use a battery with more C rating for the same capacity (45C*1800mAh/1000=80A) or a battery with the same C rate and aprox double of capacity of this (25C*3600mAh/1000=90A). Hope this helps!
For Those Few That said batteries did last but for a few flights well for one I would bet That you Charged battery at a Higher Amp Rate Than the Battery Capasity Example The 1800 Mah battery Should Not Be Charged At A Rate Any Higher Than 1.8 Amps Per Hour yes it takes longer but lipo's last 8-10 times longer when charged at a rate no Higher Than The Battery Output
I have a Turnigy nano-tech 1800mah 3S 25~50C Lipo Pack battery and I am using the Electrifly 3s connection on my Onyx 235 charger. I am getting a "Bal. Con. Error" message. I get this message whether I connect the XT60 connection to the charger or not. When I just connect the XT60 connection to the charger the error is "no battery connected". I have did continuity checks on all wires and plugs and all passed. Any help in trouble shooting would be greatly appreciated.
hello, when you say that you have done all checks to wires and plugs, do you include a selective (I mean ground cable with positive by each cell) test with a voltimeter/multimeter? If you have done that, you should try another charger or the same charger with another battery...
I disagree never had a problem charging all the way up to 5c but usually on 2 or 3 all my battery's fine after many flights, even run them in my traxxas bandit with better all round performance. Wether you got bad batch or charger issue I don't know but I find it a great battery
right now it is R&D on a profile F22. I know bigger is needed. Put on KF airfoils and have 2 or so minutes of fun. I want to build up over the winter a bigger jet that will be able to take a larger battery. Thanks for the info
This is a top performer battery!!! Big time performance. I now use them in my Stryker which is sized for a 2200mah pack. Nonsense! The 1800mah Nanotech is a better performer giving better launch RPM and punch late into the flight. Lighter, faster, more powerful (50C!) and capable of charging at 5C. Terrific value.
sure, a simple concept for all the batteries... max current = capacity in Ampers multiply by C value (discharge rate)
then= 1.8A/h x 25C = 45A this is the maximum continuos current for this battery. always use the lower value (continuous) the max value is not usable and for a little seconds only or you fry the batt... even better if you use a percentage of security .. I use 90pcnt of the max, the 45A=40A... with this principes you will keep your battery for long time
For a start the Floater has a 20 amp speedy, not 30. I'm currently using 1600mah bats in mine but have ordered some of these only because I think it could do with a fration more nose weight but even with the 1600 I'm getting quite long flight time of mixed flying.
Hello , The nano-tech batteries are a good chose but for your model it will make it nose heavy so if you chose to put this battery don't forget to check your CG and put a led weight on the tale of your plane!!! Superber battery !!!
With a 1800mah 25C, that's 45A constant power out , and 90A burst. I would use a combination that uses around the 40A mark, and an ESC of about 60A to handle burst. Invest in a watt meter to test your motor ESC combinations before flight saves alot of time. Remember the current drops once in the air.
I would also say that it depends on the motor. The motor is the component that is demanding the amount of current that will flow through your speed control. Look at the motor specifications or the customer reviews to see how many amps a certain motor is drawing on a certain prop. Then you can decide on a speed controller.
Very good stuff - just beware - many ESCs do not handle the cut-off correctly as these have so high discharge capabilities. Use a chrono or the timers in your Tx to count flight times. Very good cells.

I NEVER SUGGEST YOU TO BUY THIS NANO-TECH LI-PO'S. I BOUGHT TWO AND BOTH OF THEM BROKEN DOWN IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS. IF YOU ALREADY BOUGHT, DONT TRY TO CHARGE OVER 1C AND BE AWARE OF THAT, IT WILL NOT WORK SOON.
