Zippy Compact, the latest addition to our Zippy battery series offers excellent performance and high quality in a "Compact" size. These packs provide the same capacity and discharge rate as our Flightmax line, but give you alternative sizes for applications that require a specific shape.
Great for models with limited battery compartment space!
Zippy batteries deliver full capacity & discharge as well as being the best value batteries in the hobby market today!
Voltage: 5S1P / 5 Cell / 18.5V
Discharge: 25C Constant / 35C Burst
Weight: 460g (including wire, plug & case)
Balance Plug: JST-XH
Discharge Plug: HXT4mm

Max Charge Rate(C):
I've used these packs in my trainer and they work fine. My plane pulls around 55 amp peak and the batery barely get's hot. This gives me around 6 minutes of mixed flying. (motor is a turnigy g46 670kV) At this moment I've only used them approx. 30 times each so I'll try to report back later.Actual capacity: 3600mah
Actual weight: 540g
Actual thickness: 40mm
So we have an actual energy density which is 30pcnt less than what is declared in description.
This for me translates in flight time shortened by 10 minutes.
Very bad hobbyking, very badVery small, great size (small, narrow, long)*****
Lots of capacity for little money ****
Voltage drops sharply under high (<25C) load of fully charged battery (drops to approx. 3.25V/cell), which is nominally OK, but a bit disappointing. Seems my battery is more like a 15C-20C; does not perform like what I expect from a 25C-35C***
Main issue - Quality of the balancer plug is very bad, first contact broke after second use, 2 more were defective after 4th use. Had to solder a new balance plug to the battery. (zero stars here)
Overall I rate my battery with ***, which I think is what one expects for the money it costs.Product does not weigh 460 grams. The batteries actually weigh 540 which is heavier than my 5000 5s Sky lipos4.2Ahr labelled as 4.0AHr.
I now have two of the these. The first bought from UK Jan'13 has the described dimensions and weight but the second bought Oct'13 is actually the 4.2Ahr version with the wrong label on it (weight 486g, with dimensions as per HK website for 4.2Ahr version)The best value or money battery. I got up to 45A and battery was not warm.Funktioneren bis dato ohne Probleme bei meinem Logo 600 als 10 S PackIch nutze die in meinem Logo 600 als 10S Pack. Bei 2000 U/min und leichten 3D habe ich nach 5 Minuten immer noch 40pcnt im Lipo. Der Zellendrift bleibt seit der ersten Ladung bei 0.006V.
Das ist das erste mal das ich Zippys gekauft habe. Laut Lipo Checker hatte ich einen Zellendrift von 0,002 V. Ich denke damit kann man sehr gut leben. Ein erster Test steht noch aus, da das Wetter nicht wirklich mitspielt.They comes with 12 AWG cables in new batches. Build quality is very good. And power/weight rate is so high.
