The number one in performance, value and price! The new Turnigy® Lipoly packs deliver 100% capacity and a true 20C. You wont find a better deal in Lithium Polymer batteries anywhere!
Why are our batteries so cheap, yet deliver the full capacity and discharge rate? The answer is simple; we make them ourselves! Yes, Hextronik Limited* now mixes the slurry, bakes the foil, stacks the layers, injects the electrolite and packs the packs. All in it's very own humidity controlled factory in Guangdong (China). When buying a TURNIGY® 2200mAh 20C you are buying a pack direct from the manufacturer. Thats why our price is so low!
Attention. Our TURNIGY® batteries are full capacity batteries. Don't be fooled by other cheap Asian packs that are really 80% capacity. We guarantee our packs to be 100% or more in capacity and C rate. At this price, why bother with other brands? Stick with TURNIGY®, your trusted Lipoly partner!
*Hextronik Limited does not manufacture LiCo2 or any of it's related compounds.
Is it me or dose it seem that the US warehouse seems to have alot of lipo batteries out of stock ( backordered ). checked 4 different cell count batteries I want to get and all are bo at the moment. will cost over $50 for shipping for the batteries from HK total 36000mah 4s, 3s and 2s packs. HK please restock the other WH with batteries to help us out with the lipo flight issues.
is the height and width measurements on this battery mixed up or is this battery really wider than it is tall? the reason i ask is because other lipos i have bought are usually taller than they are wide and the plane i need this to fit in has a limited battery space
I'm a bit confused how to use two batteries with two motors. Do you plug one in on one ESC and the other battery on the other? Can someone please tell me how to do this setup?
And if that can not be done, how do I run one battery on two motors?
It is best to run 2 motors on one battery,if you have a seperate battery to each motor one may run out before the other which will give you problems.Make up a Y harness which will link the one battery to both speed controllers and this will work fine.
Also understand that twice the amount of motors means it is going to draw twice as many amps. This 2200mAh 20C battery can handle a maximum of 44 amps. The formula is Capacity x Discharge(2200 mAh x 20C)=44,000 mAh...or...44 amps. You need two ESC's no matter what setup you go with. You can connect a Y-harness to them though.
Awg, is the thickness of the wire. The lower the number the thicker the wire. 13awg is more than enough for this battery or a lipo battery. Ec3 is the type of connector. This comes on most planes made by Eflite, Hobby/parkzone. And the higher the C rating means the more punch it'll have. 20c is more than enough if you are just flying a park flyer. But in short the higher the number the more power/punch. Hope this helps.
20c and 30c are discharge ratings* the higher c-rating, the more punch and power. Low c-rating batteries can puff after a shorter period of time than higher c-rating. Purchase regular Turnigy batteries and then compare it with a Turnigy nano-tech (very high c-rating). Huge difference. What aircraft will you be using it on?
The "C" rating determines how many amps can be drawn continuously from the battery. This is important as you want to pick a lipo that can deliver the amount of amps your motor/ESC combo is drawing from it. So if you have a motor/ESC combo that has a 80amp draw, then you need a battery that can supply that draw. You figure this out by Multiplying the "C" rating by the "Mah" of the battery to give you the Amount of Amps the lipo can deliver. So for an 80a ESC/motor combo you would need at least a 40c 2200mah lipo (40c x 2.2Ah = 88amps). If your ESC/motor combo draws more amperage than the lipo can deliver, then the lipo will get hot, puff up and be destroyed. So make sure you pick the appropriate "C" rated lipo for the application your using.
Charging a battery at 5C its capacity is very risky, and it's not a matter of price and that not being concerned about how long it lasts. It's a matter of personal safety, a Li-Po battery can get on fire and even explod if expose to extreme charging rate, fire, wire, or oxygen* causing property damage, or worse, personal injury. - Safest way: Slow charge at 1C. "It's better to lose a minute in life, than life in a minute".
I think there's too much hype on lipos. Some batterys you can charge at 10c with no problem! 6 years of lipo use and I have never had one blow up (while charging). But always use caution and never charge them unattended. I always charge in a flame proof area with a bag. I don't have the patience for a 1c charge rate.
The max charge rate listed for this lipo is 4C, so you could safely charge this at 8.8amps (4C x 2.2Ah = 8.8A) without I'll effect. Lipo technology has improved a great deal since the old 1C charging rule. Almost every new lipo can safely charge at much higher rates, just check the manufacturers maximum charging "C" rating for the lipo your interested in.
I want to buy your 2200mAh 11.1V 3S1P 20C LiPo pack to go into a Hobbico Sensei trainer. The Hobbico battery recommended for this trainer has a "SuperTiger" female connector. Will this fit with your battery or do I need an adaptor and, if so, what kind. As you can probably tell, I am very new at electric RC flight so I will very much appreciate any help on this subject.
Will work fine, you may have to change the connections depending on what your plane has now. I usually change all my planes to DEANS anyways. You'll see about 4min more flight time out of it and slight bit more power. Your plane will love it.

I love the pop up on the right.. Yeah..What a joke ...
Other stores will force you to ship the product back to China in full retail packaging every time!
Hobbyking's warranty service is professional, fair and fast..How if you can't get a hold of anybody ?
I dont have a problem using EMAIL to get ahold of them at email@example.com. It may take 3-5 days but you really have to have patience with them. They are pretty busy and they help the best they can.
Especially with us in America.
What every one has to think about in this material is one yes there batteries are a lot cheaper than thunder power and other brands out there in the RC world. So if you order one and it is a bad one you can do one of two thing work with them in getting a replacement. Or just buy another one because there really not that much money. If you think spending 40 dollars or less for a nice lipo battery your in the wrong hobby my friend. As for not being able to talk or email and get a response right aw
I have had minor issues with the Turnigy Standard lipo batteries such as minor swelling after 10 hard 3D flights but i have never had an issue with the Turnigy Nano Tech batteries they are amazing!!! i have a Mini Funtana with a 480 outrunner, it halls! and vertical proformance is incredible with the Nano tech, i can pound it for a 15 min flight and land with cool batteries and the very minimum voltage i ever had was 3.6 volts per cell.
If I were you, I would call, e-mail, and chat frequently to hopefully get an answer as fast as possible. Don't stop, I'm sure they will contact you some way or another if you contact them multiple times.
They are busy, just keep trying. It is frustrating, but eventually they will answer. I have also heard that going onto your payment method (Credit or paypal) and disputing the payment gets you attention because they don't wan't to lose your/their money.
For the SR-71, you recommend the 25c, but wouldn't the 20c 3s 11.1v 2200mah work better. The battery space of the airplane is very limited and most of the batteries in 25c are too big in size and weight.
C rating has nothing to do with a batteries ability to "push" power. Your esc pulls as much power from your battery as needed to run your motor. I'm sure you could use a 20c in place of a 25c it really depends on how many amps your motor is pulling
the battery i got with the kit from another hobby store is 2800MAH. i cant find one with that amperage and size. anything bigger just wont fit. the 2800 only gave me 5 minutes of flight. i am thinking the 2200 will give 3-4 minutes at best.
If you can fit a 2200 in the SR 71, do so. Otherwise, you should stick with 25c, no matter, even if you can only fit an 1800 in there. 20c may swell over a short time. The motor may be too demanding in the SR 71.
You should be fine with a 20c battery because a 20c batteries burst is between 20 and 30c. On the other hand there would not be a big differents in the size of them two batterys so its really all up to you!!! Hope I could help!
This awesome battery has a yellow XT60 plug, but if you want to, you can cut it and solder any other kind of connector on it. However, you must know what types of connectors will still be able to hold the charge in because putting an incompatible plug on these batteries can cause them to explode.
I have 4 of these packs now. I ordered two almost a year ago, and have used them in helicopters and airplanes both. They deliver consistently and predictably, and even after a year they are on par with the two I just purchased - some slight puffing on the older packs is all. Great battery!

1 thumbs up!
Took two days to get here with Priority Shipping (to Louisiana)! Nice! Mine were also shipped with XT60 connectors. I swapped them to Deans, since that's what's on everything else I have already. They were both balanced well, one at 3.86V/cell, the other at 3.87V/cell. I charged one, than discharged it, then balanced it. It's gave a bit more than 2200mAh on the first cycle, I expect them to be some good packs, especially once they get a few cycles on them and "break in". As long as what I need is in stock, Hobbyking's USA warehouse will be my go-to place for LiPos! I wish you'd stock small items too. I could have grabbed some HXT900 servos, servo extensions, battery connectors, etc. with this order, but I had to go elsewhere for them. Shipping is either too expensive, or too slow for small items that I need fast when it's coming from China.
Just got 5 of these. Compact size only slightly bigger than 1600 3s.

I have purchased two of these packs from the USA warehouse and they arrived very quickly. XT60 connectors by default, but I use Deans so I changed them out and kept the XT60 connectors for when I eventually make the change over. Both packs took a full charge and exhibit good characteristics.
I use them in my Trex 450 for sport flying, in the Durafly Cessna 182 and my home built SPAD. Great packs for the price.
As the normal with your batteries I am a happy camper both batteries arrived well packaged cells where 3.84 and balanced. I flew these in a AP plane with a monster 15 size motor great performance from these batt's.
