Turnigy, the name synonymous with performance, reliability and innovation is excited to release a powerful new battery chemistry in the Turnigy Graphene!
Turnigy Graphene batteries go harder for longer but they're unlike anything you have seen or used before. Turnigy Graphene packs utilize carbon in the battery structure to form a single layer of graphene just 0.335nm thick, making that type of battery substrate the thinnest known to mankind.
The graphene particles form a highly dense compound allowing electrons to flow with less resistance compared to traditional Lipoly battery technologies. Put simply, faster top end speed coupled with blistering acceleration. The result is a battery capable of maintaining greater power output whilst remaining much cooler under load.
Since heat and resistance are the natural enemy of batteries Graphene chemistry has significantly reduced these problems and the result is an incredible boost in cycle life.
Turnigy Graphene batteries are the new standard for serious racers who require POWER ON DEMAND.
Voltage: 2S2P / 2 Cell / 7.4V
Discharge: 90C Constant
Weight: 206g (including wire, plug & case)
Balance Plug: JST-XH
Discharge Plug: 5.00mm (in case)
Advantages over traditional Lipo batteries.
• Power density: 0.15-0.17kw/kg (5Ah-16Ah)
• Power density: 0.13-0.15kw/kg (1Ah-4.9Ah).
• Stable High pack voltage through duration of use.
• High discharge rate, giving more power under load.
• Internal impedance can reach as low as 1.2mO compared to that of 3mO of a standard Lipoly.
• Greater thermal control, packs stay much cooler under extreme conditions
• Higher capacity during heavy discharge.
• Maintains higher pack capacity even after hundreds of cycles
• Fast charge capable, up to 15C on some batteries.
• Longer Cycle Life 600+
Note: Graphene LiPo Batteries only require a standard Lipo battery charger.

I bought a couple of these Graphene Batteries, they seem similar to the Ultimate Turnigy batteries that I have in my pitbox.
The Ultimate have good performance so I think these are probably similar.
Good price from Hobbyking, and the packaging of them seems really top notch with a draw string bag to keep them in.
The downside, is that whilst the Ultimate are BRCA and ROAR legal, the graphene with similar specification appear to have not made it to the BRCA 2017 2S Stick LiPo homologation list. This means that the battery is still illegal to race at a BRCA sanctioned event. Its a shame really because it would appear that this battery just needs to be submitted by Hextronic.
Going to test them soon and see how they get on, but expecting similar or better performance as the Ultimate.These batteries are really good. I was waiting for the Turnigy Ultimate 4600 packs to come back in stock because I have had really good race results with them, even better than some big name packs. The Graphene has about 10pcnt more punch than the Ultimates. I'm keeping up with the guys who charge @ 40A again and I only charge @ 10A.
