Yes it's possible. Most of the new higher quality packs will allow 5C safely, though they've only been out for a year or so...which makes it hard to tell whether or not it lowers the life expectancy of the pack.
Charging at around 2-3c is both safe and very unlikely to lower the life expectancy of your pack.
Hi, it says you can in the specs, but that's over 22amps! I normally limit my charging rates to 1C, or up to 2C max. It's much better for your battery packs and they will last longer. The Nano-Tech ones can handle much higher currents.
Are you all boys crazy? 5C is serious amount. Even 1C is too much. If you want to ruin your battery for 20 cycles is ok. Always charge mine at 1Amp, 2Amps if i am in a hurry. If capacity is 5000mah then 1C=5A wich is too much for the lipo cells. Yes it will handle 5A charge , but how many cycles ?
Sorry all, i said no to a 5c Charge earlier. You can charge at 5C.
*snaychev* How is 1C too much. could you please provide information which gives credibility to your statement. Almost all batteries allow 2c and some of my Nano packs allow 10C. If you want to charge at .5c thats cool but we're not the crazy ones.
spitfire2010- nanos are other song. We are talking about that Zippy exactly. Mine is like an air pillow (baloon) after 25 cycles at 1C . You said your packs "allow" - do you mean "it is written"?
Because on the door of the toilet it is written "women" but there are no women inside. *)
Nothing personal mate. The choice is yours.
2 thumbs up!
great battery for the price.Lasted about 30 to 40 mins on a 12t 3300KV motor.I had to make it fit in my vxl rustler but took about 20 mins to fab up the battery tray 1mm on each side and you will have to cut off the back plate right up to the first screw hole were the esc screws in.and you have to cut a slot for the wires"right side",these are 3 mm to long for the rustler vxl but after i was done it fit nice..... well worth the money.....
