Tested to have exactly the capacity expected. Punchy long run times and unbeatable price. I bought two and only used a few times one of them broke a connection inside and only works when pressing the end in just the right way, unusable. After owning many lipos this is a first. Other than this one-off Zippy packs are great!perfect and compact for carZippy LiPo batteries are extremely affordable and high quality. This particular battery is similar in dimension to conventional 6-Cell NiMh batteries found in lower end RC cars particularly those with Brushed motors, however they have more than 2X the capacity for similar weight and dimensions.
These are an excellent upgrade if you have stock Ni-Cd or Ni-Mh batteries.
Be sure however that your ESC (Electronic Speed Controller) is LiPo compatible. LiPo and Nickel batteries have different low voltage cut-offs, and over discharging a LiPo can cause permanent loss of capacity or severe damage to the battery and model.
You must use a LiPo capable charger. Plugging a LiPo battery into a NiMh or NiCd wall charger will ruin the battery and very likely start a fire.Nice battery. Used to power a hot wire foam cutter made of nicrom.
Used also on a 1/10 2WD buggy with very good resultsBought these for my Traxxas Slash 4x4. I'm running stock Velineon 3500 motor and VXL-3s ESC. The improvement in speed and power is MASSIVE!
I'm really impressed with the quality and performance of the batteries. This is no real surprise as I've been using Zippy lipos on my helicopters for a while now.
Great service from Hobby King as usual!
cheap and light, like themVery good battery, very thinI run 2 of these on my e-maxx. they fit nicely with the stock foam battery spacers the truck came with, I am getting extended run times by about 10 minutes but it is noticeably slower than the stock nimh packs due to the slightly lower voltage. after many many charge cycles they have still not lost any run time or puffed at all. i would highly recommend Zippy compact batteries!!Packs puffed and are toast after first run. Have other zippy flightmax 2s and 3s that are great. Not sure what was up with these but I have 4 that are dead now.Great batteries. Fits perfect in a Vaterra Glamis Uno. In fact you can almost fit 2 of these batteries within the battery compartment. Can't complain about the price either! The stated dimensions are accurate.
