So i bought 2 of these and came perfectly balanced even after charging. I noticed in my quad after 14 min flght time on 1.5kg monster that i used 5000 mah and it was at 10.8. I though i killed them then i charged it at set 3s and 5000mah and when fully charged at 5000 it only gets 12.5 volts. Thsi is the same with other battery. I didused that this IS NOT A 5000MAH BATTERY BUT 5600 MAH BATTERY!!!!
Yes you can connect two batteries together.
If you wire two batteries in series (ESC black to black of batt1, then red of batt1 to black of batt2, then red of batt2 to ESC red) you will get a total battery of twice the voltage, same capacity and same C rating.
If you wire two batteries in parallel (ESC red to both batts red, and ESC black to both batts black) then you will get a total battery of double the capacity, same voltage same C rating.
This is done in series by many people in RC bo
It is perfectly safe to wire the LIPO batteries together, we do it all the time with our RC boats. You can wire the batteries in parallel to extend run times at the same voltage (red to red, black to black) or you can wire in series to add the two voltages together (as explained by S2KMatt). I would recommend building a harness with conenctors to do this so you don't have to modify the batteries. This also allows you to charge the batts as before and use them individually when you want. As far a
Aulsie, I'm not sure that's correct. Connecting two batteries in parallel doubles the capacity, which doubles the battery's max safe discharge rate. It doesn't double the C-rating. If it doubled the C-rating and capacity, then wiring two batteries in parallel would effectively quadruple the safe discharge rate. Making this assumption could be dangerous.
(P.S. I'm not an expert, so please let me know if I'm off base. That is entirely possible!)
I used 2 in series on my electric gokart and used 2 cheap cell meters with low voltage alarms and when the buzzer sounded I pushed the thing home. Riding that last 50 feet after the alarm will kill your batteries. But mine lasted over a year running 2 cycles per day. (series = b1 red to vehicle, b1 black to b2 red, b2 black to vehicle)
Does anyone know if this really comes with 4mm bullet cuz the 25c 35c batts i got from here were zippy and they sayed they had 4mm bullet but it came with 5mm bullet ones or 5.5. What kind of wire do these have does it have 10awg because if it does it will most likely have 5 to 5.5mm bullet connector.
Depends, I have about 12 of these batteries. However the last 6 I just got are a little larger but pretty close to the specs listed on the site. My first 6 are much smaller with a weight of 365grams. The most recent are around 404grams measuring 145x52x26
I am almost certain that they will fit in a stock traxxas e-revo without modification. The inside dimensions of a stock e-revo battery compartment is: 160mm Length by 51mm deep by 30mm Height In battery dimensions on hobbyking.com it would be: Length-A(mm) 160
Great batteries. I have purchased many of these and they have all balanced, charged, and performed great. These are a great value for the money.

I bought 8 of these batteries about 3 months ago. when i got them, one battery had a dead cell (which im still trying to get hobby king to replace) since then i have had 2 more batteries have a cell die and 2 more of them that i don't think will last much longer. I am very upset with this product and will never buy another battery from hobby king again. I would not recommend this battery for applications that will draw more then 40-50 amps. Complete waste of my money.

Bought 3 of these batteries recently. I am more of a Turnigy guy but I needed a 5000 3s and Zippy was in stock. My friend has had bad luck with Zippy's but I thought I would try them out. All of them are balanced and working good!
