Your esc does not mean it will pull 150a from your battery, it can but this is not your concern. What your motor draws at full throttle is what matters. You need a watt meter to check your system. Wouldn't matter if you had a 3000 watt esc, check your motor amps and watts* that will let you know what your battery requirements are, cheers
Very good batery at a very good price. I bought one extra just in case the price is wrong. I have tried many batteries, this is one of the cheapest and the best. You cant beat that combination. i am very pleased with this buy.
I have 8 sets of these batteries and for bashing or messing around on the track they are awesome in a 1/8 buggy or truggy
All my cars are running either MMM 2200kv or the trackstar 2650kv system.
Get them and you wont be sorry
they not really good for big esc and 1/8 scale run about 120 amps or more in peak current and this pack can only give you 100 amps peak for fews second
but if you have enougth place in your 1/8 body , just put them in parallel so you be able to run them in 40c
I run 4S 20C (different pack) in a 1/8 buggy with Mamba Max and 2200kv motor. It's fine as long as I geared it lightly, e.g. less than 60kph top speed. So, just don't gear it too high and you should be fine.
no they only have been BK since roughly the 20th. i was gonna make a purchase because they were in stock but as soon as i made an order 2 days later they were in the BK. i made an order just patiently waiting for them now. hopefully wont be too much longer :)
Have 16 of theses on my ebike. Have 4 parallels of 4 batteries - about 66.2V charged battery, 58V discharged. Gets me around 80-100 km on one charge at around 45km/h with medium pedaling.
Would be nice if there was a big balancing charger, cause right now i have to manually balance and bulk charge later.
You can get a Turnigy MEGA 400Wx2 and 2 Parallel charging Board for 6 packs. This set up would balance charge up to 12 packs in less than 1.5hrs. Or you could get a HobbyKing 4B6 and 4 Parallel charging Boards and balance charge up to 24 packs at once. The second option would be slower at charging as each 1 of the 4 channels only go up to 50W.
It's not B grade.....and it's a 14.8v pack....hence 14.8v reading? Lipoly's are rated at nominal voltage per cell of 3.70 x 4 = 14.8v, the reading you get straight off a charger (more like 4.2v per cell) won't last long under load.
Thanks scott,I was worried if these batts are under performing...now I get the problem...the voltage buzzer sounds the alarm when the battery reaches 14.8 ... under load the battery voltage sags to 14.8 but after the load is removed the voltage comes back to 15.3 so I need to set the voltage alarm to sound at 14.5, so that when I check under no load condition the battery is discharged to 14.8 and I get all the amps I have been promised..
Greetings. Can you tell me, if these connectors fit the item below?

And will this item ship to Russia?
This is actually a bit lighter than Turnigy 5000mah 4s LiPo. Don't know how, but it really is. And if you crash, you know that your plane won't be in fire. I use this in my skywalker 168 and it works perfectly.
Without pack and new heatshrink I measured 500g total.
Just recieve one.
All cells ballanced on my iCharger 106 with:
I plug it to my HB Ve8, do some runs, everything is fine!

best bang for the buck, can't wait for more to come in stock. 12 gauge wires 150mm long with 4mm dual bullet plugs. 5c charge rating with silicone 26 gauge balance plug.

I have received 2 packs today. Voltages are fine - 3.86V and both packs balanced.
One pack has a poor glue job on plastic casing which opened really easy so I got to see whats inside. Cells look fine so I gues it is really just a bad glue job. I will close it with my own glue and use it that way. I hope that will be no trouble. If you think I am in danger please reply to this review! Oh, yes - ordered 2 more packs.

Dieser Hard Case Akku eignet sich natuerlich auch fuer Flugmodelle. Gute Spannungslage mit 4,20 Volt je Zelle, liefert mir 70A ohne sonderlich warm zu werden, ein wirklich empfehlenswertes Teil, ich werde mir einen zweiten Akku als Ersatz zulegen.
