Turnigy Bolt series high voltage lithium polymer batteries are here, ready to bring out the next level of power to your high performance model. Turnigy Bolt batteries are built to the absolute highest of standards to provide competition level performance. With features such as gold plated balance leads, silver plated discharge wires and a reformulated matrix to allow you to safely charge them up to 4.35 volts per cell! These batteries are simply unmatched by any other in performance and build quality!
In addition to the higher nominal and max voltage, they are engineered to take high C rate discharge up to 65C continuous. Basically what this means is that these batteries will provide more power in your machine especially during high current draw maneuvers, and they will provide a longer cycle life due to the lower operating temperatures of the pack.
Top notch performance and build quality make these packs ideal for high-demand flying such as 3D helicopters, EDFs, F3A and any other high current draw applications. Each pack is built with heavy duty flexible silicone wire leads and a pre-installed connector ready to handle all you can throw at it. The great thing about the Turnigy Bolt batteries is that you can charge them with any standard lipo charger for basic use, they will simply perform like a standard pack. When using the proper charger such as our Turnigy Neutron chargers, which is designed with special protocol for these LiHV batteries, you can unlock the full potential of the Turnigy Bolt batteries.
More than just a fancy name. TURNIGY Bolt series lithium polymer batteries are built with a LiCo nano-technology substrate complex and an all new CNT (carbon nano tube) additive greatly improving power transfer making the oxidation/reduction reaction more efficient, this helps electrons pass more freely from anode to cathode with less internal impedance. In short; less voltage sag and a higher discharge rate than a similar density lithium polymer (non nano-tech) battery.
LiHV stands for “High Voltage Lithium Polymer”. These batteries have been around for years and can be safely charged to 4.35V, higher than the typical voltage of Lipos.
The advantages of LiHV batteries are the higher power and longer running times. LiHV batteries can be charged to 4.35V per cell, higher than normal LiPo batteries which sit at 4.20V. For example, a 4S LiHV pack charged at 4.35V would give you 17.4V. Whereas a Lipo battery on the same charge would only get 16.8V. LiHV batteries also have a lower internal resistance and are less prone to "puffing".
For those that love graphs, it means a straighter, longer curve. For pilots it spells stronger throttle punches and unreal straight-up performance.
Unfortunately with other big brands; numbers, ratings and graphs can be fudged. Rest assured, Turnigy Bolt series LiHV packs are the real deal, delivering unparalleled performance!

These Bolts are great batteries!
So far, I've bought 4S 850 (x2) and a 4S 1300. I've also got a 6S 1300, but I haven't been able to use it yet.
Anyway, these batteries do get warmer than my other batteries, but they perform VERY well. The 850 seems to go by really quickly, but it's a tiny battery, so I kind of expected that. The slightly higher voltage is awesome! The extra voltage is really nice for my little F22 EDF. Definitely worth the price, and the effort of sourcing an LiHV capable charger!I purchased these about 2 weeks ago and have around 2 flights on each of the 5 batteries I purchased. One already started overheating while charging and now has a failed first cell and puffed. I am charging these on a Powerlab 6 charger which 100pcnt supports LiHV batteries.
