Turnigy AA LSD 2400mAh Low Self Discharge (ready to use)
Low self discharge AA NiMH battery. Great for transmitters, fuel pumps, glow starters or other low discharge electronics that you want to use over several months or years without having to recharge.
Low-Self-Discharge NiMH batteries are a new technology that prevent the battery from slowly losing it's charge over time. In fact these LSD batteries can stay charged for over a year without losing more than 30% of their charge. Normal NiMH batteries would lose nearly 100% of their charge over 12 months.

We guarantee our cells are true to their capacity! Sadly battery marketing is an evil game, with overstated capacity being the industry norm. Generally speaking, battery factories will suggest vendors to overstate the capacity by at least 30%, marking 1800mAh cells with 2300mAh labels or more! While this might work for toy stores, such marketing tactics wouldnt survive 1 week in our store with customer feedbacks and reviews, and thats why we guarantee our TURNIGY 2400mAh NiMH cells to be at least 2400mAh!
Hi Lauschi, I haven't tested these cells specifically, but most of the reference literature states 2C as the approximate safe/reliable maximum discharge rate for NiMH cells. I would expect it to be approx. 5A (2 x 2.4A capicity) for these cells, as they are no different from other NiMH cells except for their low self-discharge rate. Cheers, EA!
depends on the charger, I have an automatic that charges them up in a few hours. If your charger is not automatic, you have to look at the amperage the charger puts out and divide the capacidence (2400 Mah) and the result is how long it should take to charge.
Hi stepaway, They usually arrive with about 80%-90% charge on them, so no more than a few hours of charging time should be necessary. It's actually better, according to various references, to cycle them up/down a few times before you leave them fully charged for any length of time. If you're going to use them in a Tx, for example, then fully charge them, turn the Tx on for several hours (or go flying), then charge them again. After several cycles they will begin to hold more charge for longer periods. Cheers, EA!
You need to charge through. It is best if the charging is limited by voltage drop. Another way to insert the charger and check the temperature as soon as the hot -40-50 degrees, all of the charge is over. This is an extreme method, but it works if you have a bad (cheap) charger. If you have a smart charger (Accucel 6 or same) simply put it on charge and wait for it to end.
This is a very good batteries with real capacity.
the way is to send a mail to Customer service asking to cancel the order.
Check on very to of screen "contact" there you find how to contact them.
another solution could be to use the "chat".
yes they are chargeable. just use a standard NIMH charger. The nice side of these batteries are that they maintain the charge for a very long time if not in use. So not to be afraid that you did not charge your transmiter or hand lamp or still camera or "kid's" toys.
you need a AA www.link a Charger such as the ECO 50, or Accucel, any of the Turnigy Chargers which does Lipo and Nimh.
You can also buy AA holders for different numbers of batteries, depending what you need. I bought four, one for 1 AA one for 2 AA one for 3 AA, and one for 4 AA. Hobbyking sells the one for 4 AA's.
Hello Alex this are supposed to have 80% of capacity after 1 year. This is very good. The capacity is 2400mA so they still have 1900mA after 1 year.almost as good as dry battery and you can charge them when you want. So no more problem if you charge 2 weeks ago :-) Enjoy flying
Hello Victor, as soon as they are available you can buy them. Just put them on your wish list and tick the "send email when available" Then you will know, but be quick as many are waiting for them. Enjoy flying
Thanks again, guys. Now what would be the best charger for these batteries? Would I be able to use the Mint Cleaner Charger as usual, or is it better to buy something like a turnigy or imax charger? In this case, which one would be th best?
I guess the mint charger will work ok, though i am not sure as i don't know about that charger. However, Turnigy Accucel-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charger w/ accessories PRODUCT ID: ACC6 is a really good charger for NiMH and LiPo batteries.
Hi again. Thank you very much for your answers. I am really a noob, as in have never seen one of these packs inside. I read in an answer below that these packs have soldering tabs and buying them i could assemble them the way I want/need. How do these soldering tabs fit in the procedure? Are they like permanete (meaning i have to break the soldering to disassemble and then solder again), or something like a lego toy, that i can assemble in any way I see fit?
Sorry for so many questions, just trying to get things right. Thanks.
Hi Fabricio, If you need a 6-cell pack made up of these NiNH LSD cells, the best thing to do is buy 2 of the 4-cell packs (PRODUCT ID: 9169000007 or 9169000006) to disassemble and reassemble as a 6-cell pack. The soldering tabs are little flexible strips of metal that are spot-welded to each end of the cell. When the packs are assembled, these strips are either soldered to each other or a short wire is soldered between them to make the connections between cells. You will need a soldering iron (25W-40W), some solder (60/40 is best), a little bit of soldering paste flux, and some short pieces of wire. As soon as you open up the pack it will be obvious to you how they go together. You just need to reconfigure the cells into the pack shape you need. Cheers, EA!
So apart from buying at my local shop and soldering, there's no other option? I mean, can I for example buy a 6 cell pack of another brand and change the cells? I ask that because my local shops only have **** batteries. Thanks for your help guys.
Hi guys, just a quick question. Will these batteries be good to use with a Mint Cleaner? Mint´*s battery specification says "1500 mAh NiMH Mint 4200 Battery", and it looks like 6 AA batteries.
Thanks a lot.
2.4Amps is fine for a camera flash. It is more power then cheap standard AA batteries anyway.
Always charge your batteries before using them In your model or TX.
Credit if my answer was useful please. Enjoy!
This are awesome batteries I use them with my RCA car transmitter the stay charged like regular alkaline or lithium batteries

You can only buy one of these batteries unless you pay for registered postage- Makes purchasing them VERY expensive. Postage for 8 batts on their own $14. If you include it with another order going registered almost doubles the postage cost.
Even though it's only a NiMH, they still apply the same 3000mah limit they use for lipos.
