This is not a standard lipo pack. It is a low discharge Lithium Polymer pack, designed specifically for R/C Radio use. We do not suggest you to use a standard Lipoly pack with Tx power plugs in your radio system as standard Lipoly are capable of a rapid energy release which can harm sensitive radio electronics.
Now you dont need to recharge your transmitter battery for months. Bring the world of Lipo technology to your transmitter today! Lithium polymer batteries last much longer than NiMH as they have a far better energy density.This means you can now have the power of Lipo with NiMH peace of mind.
The pack includes a JST-XH charge port plug, and a Futaba plus a JR style discharge plug!
Capacity: 2620mAh Voltage: 11.1v (3S1P) Size: 102x30x26mm (size includes 1.5mm for clearance on all measurements) Charge Plug: JST-XH Discharge: Futaba & JR
I wouldn't recommend that. This battery can not give a lot of current to spin motors properly. Check your motor max current and max current of ESC (for example it will be 20A). After that you can choose proper battery by discharge rate measured as C (for 2000mAh battery 1C will be 2A, for 5000mAh 1C will be 5A and so on). Hope that helps.
Looks like your charger doesn't have balance port. It's better to buy charger that designed for Lipo. I recommend TGY-3, because you can plug it into wall outlet directly and it will charge battery wih it's balance plug. TGY-3 is pretty cheap and easy to use: just plug and go. Hope that helps.
I use Accucel-6 but it's not for beginners: you need to buy or solder battery connectors (it comes only with XT60 plug), you need to buy separate power supply (or use old PC ATX power supply), you need to connect both power and balance plugs... So it works, but it's too complicated. I use cheap non-setupable charger like TGY-3, that you can just plug and go. But you can try Imax or Accucel if charging time matters a lot.
In theory you can use black connector to power your Turnigy 9X. Just check twice polarity. Mine connector was a little bit longer, so I made replaced one of connectors with proper one. Hope this helps.
I am having quite the time finding a replacement battery for my Airtronics RD 8000 TX. What was in there was a Sanwa 9.6 V 700mAh battery pack by Sanwa.Ni-CD. would this battery suffice as a replacement? and would my Airtronics charger with a output of 75 ma work on this battery?
or can you suggest a replacement that will work with my TX.
You can try this SKU: NT8S700B. It's Ni-CD and absolutely fits your requirements. It's not in stock now, but you can wait for a white. I don't recommend to use Rhino battery: it's 12V instead of 9.6. More important that Rhino battery is Li-Po type, so you need special charger for it. Hope that helps.
anikeev: If you look at Oh Jose video on youtube, you will see the short sheathed cable he made with small white plug on one end (for transmitter) and a JST plug on the other end.
He evidently plugs the JST into the male JST that is already on the Rhino. I watched him stuff all the wires into the left end and it looks quite feasible. I just wanted to be sure that I can plug the JST into the male JST on battery and get transmitter power that way.
Since JST has non symmetric connectors you can't connect it wrong way. As many people already said - the only way to fry your transmitter is power it with wrong polarity. So you can make a JST-2pin**-JST-3pin adaptor and use it in your TX.
I would like to do as 'Jose' on Youtube suggests and make a short cable connector with small white plug (for transmitter) on one end and a female JST connector on the other. Can I then plug this into the existing JST male connector on the Rhino and get power to the transmitter?
I am feeling my way here, guys.
It's better to buy proper white connector for your TX and solder it instead one of battery connectors. Just like I did. There's not too much space in battery compartment to store a lot of wires, but if your variant much easier for you - then do it.
comprei uma Rhino 2620mAh 3S 11.1v Low-Discharge Transmitter Lipoly Pack para usar no rá*dio 9x. Qual plug utilizo para ligar esta bateria ao rá*dio? Algumas pessoas cortam o fio do deck de pilhas para fazer a ligaç*ã*o da bateria, existem alguma bateria que se encaixe direto?
You can expect days and weeks. I charge my Rhino twice a month of active using with my Turnigy 9x. For this battery I recommend to use cheap adaptor like TGY-3 - it charges through balance plug and can be connected directly into wall. Pretty easy and cheap solution without any headache. Hope that helps.
Plug the balance lead into the charger. It should just fit. I charge this battery using a very cheap balance charger, and it just plugs straight in. You can charge it with 2.6A which will take about 50 minutes (although it says you can do it with 2C = 5A, which would take 25 or so minutes)
Accucel can't charge directly through balance plug. So you need to connect balance plug and one of battery's power plug to accucel main output. I didn't try to find proper adaptor - just soldered 4mm bullet connectors with standard pins 2.5mm step(sells in "comb" form, just break as much as you need). Works great. I also have cheap charger that can charge throuhg balance plug like this SKU: TGY-3. With this there's no problem - connect directly into wall and one wire to battery. Hope that helps.
Norplay: You say 'check the polarity from you old batterypack to your radio'. I assume you mean the connector on the 8 AA holder.
Actually, no, your comment does not answer my question.
You say 'Connect this battery to the radio with the same polarity with either the Futaba or JR plug.
I'm afraid I am not getting the picture. What happened to the little white plug on the holder? Are you using that connector and adding another connector to it? I am sadly confused.
Go to menu section: "Chargers & Accessories > Battery Chargers", I can see TGY-3 there in list, it's in stock and available at UK warehouse. Backorder available for US and Brazil. Just set search by worldwide availability not by specific country.
This is a great battery. I use it with my Futaba radios. I only need to charge once a month. There are no issues that I know of and I have been using this battery for almost a year now. I charge at 2600 using a Triton EQ charger. I just ordered another one for use with a second Futuba radio. Hope this helps.
I have a Tenergy charger w/o balance circuitry.
What happens if I charge the 3s Rhino without balancing?
Do I lose some battery life or what?
This is very confusing, and for balancing, I am not only looking at another charger, but a power supply that I can plug into the wall. Can you suggest a low-cost power supply?
Each battery cell should have 4.2V but if it unbalanced some cells can give less. You can try this charger: TGY-3. You can also charge your baggery and check it with multimeter: negative pin for black wire on balance plug, positive pin to each other wires. You should get almost same digits for all wires except red wire - it shows total voltage. If you get pretty different voltage (about 0.5V or more) you should balance your battery. Hope that helps.
I have one rhino 2620, a turnigy 9x and a DC 4s charger... all conectors are compatible.
be carefull when plugging batery in tx..if you change the polarity(wrong polarity), the tx will burn.
Good lock, friend
This DC 4s charger must be energized 12V. You can plug it directly to your car battery. Your rhino (and any other lipo battery wil be balanced and charged just pluging the 4 wires plug in the DC4 charger.
Dear Ray. Just put the code 9331000001 in search window and HK will direct you to the product. Or use the link I save to you. Good Lock
Remember choose the "best answer".
You will find it in this www.link
Just a technical design comment: Who the H..ll ever designed this teeny, tiny white plug-in slot in the Turnigy 9x? If you're a 10-year-old child maybe you can put the connector in and take it out, but for an 83-yr-old with arthritic fingers, impossible! Any good suggestions for extracting plug?
Thanks for thoughts.
All of your answers have done nothing but confuse me! I see three connectors on this battery: one for transmitter, one for charging, and one for balance charging. Is this correct?
Can I simply plug this battery in and use it...or is there some other mysterious thing I must do? A Imax b6 charger was suggested* is this necessary? I have a Tenergy Universal Smart Charger which charges with 1amp or 2amp, but no balance.
Thanks for clarification.
Hello. One of the conectors (4 wires) is to charge and balance, or just balance, depending of your charger. the other two conectors (just 2 wires) is to conect to transmitter or to charger. You must charge and balance any lipo battery, to optimize it capacitie and durability. The Turnigy DC4 (SKU: 9331000001)charger use just balance plug to charge and balance, is fast and cheap. Remember choose "best answer". Good lock
Received battery in perfect condition. All cells charged to 3.90 volts. Description measurements are accurate. Balancer leads = 48mm Futaba discharge leads = 120mm JR discharge leads = 110mm
Fits perfectly in my Futaba 7C. Charged to 12.6 volts, and it works like a champ! No more hassling with that high maintenance NiCd.

whoever plug a jr/spektrum connector to a "hitec" transmitter and found out he has a blow out (ouch!) need to learn basic electricity specially DC electric! the standard norm is Red wire =Positive... Black wire=Negative but u still going to watch out since alot of manufacturers doesn't use the "standard" color... jr/spektrum and others used brown wire = as negative so u have to watch those color coding! also on hitec transmitter, it has a safety tab if you used their "battery" so that you can't plug them in reverse... the problem is the jr/spektrum connector will fit on hitec BUT on reverse connection to use it "properly" ( please look first how your original hitec battery plug polarity i.e. positive on positive, negative on negative plug)so that you wont repeat the same mistake.. make a mark on your transmitter which is positive and negative.. please use common sense for any DC electric wiring!..
P.S. another tip: those people who are afraid of voiding their warranty and afraid that 12.6v will fried their transmitter, use a good charger that has a "storage function" like bantam.. i charged my lipo at 11.4v using the storage function.. it will not fully charge your lipo but hey a 11.4v lipo is not the same with a 11.6v nimh/nicd since they discharge differently (lipo is more efficient than nimh/nicd) which still equates to hours of uses compare to nicd/nimh before needing charges...
btw, if you don't have a storage function, you can just watch your charger charging t

I have this pack installed in my Futaba 9C and Hitec Eclipse 7 transmitters. I have been flying this setup for about 3 months. I installed 3 diodes in series with the positive lead between the pack and the Tx connector. This dropped the voltage by about 2.4V. Adding the three diodes: 1) supplies the expected voltage required for the transmitter 2) allows the low voltage alarms to function correctly and 3) isolates the Tx charge input jack forc
I just received another of this awesome battery. I'm using it in my Futaba 10CHP, and a Walkera 2801Pro, and they works like a dream on both of them. Charged them to 12,5V on a iCharger iC6. No problems, used it my Futaba for months, and 3 weeks in my Walkera. I was a little afraid that it would fry my radios because of the higher voltage. So I did some checking, and all the radios I've been looking at says: Power supply: 9,6V - 12V Here's from Futaba man. Power supply: 9.6V NT8S600B Ni-Cd battery or 12V alkaline battery. What kind of battery doesn't matter, as long as the voltage is OK. (What kind of battery just affect the time you can use it, and how you charge it) The radios I have checked is: Futaba, Walkera, Spectrum, and Graupner/JR, and they're spec. says the same 9,6V - 12V. So there should be no worries about the voltage..
