HobbyKing Turnigy Nano Tech battery

Postby jeffie8696 » Sun Jan 09, 2011 11:07 pm

I picked up this little 3 cell 850 and have been using it on my Slow Stick for a few months. It gets flown quite often in my front yard. I must say this little battery is doing very well. I use it along with other brands (whatever was on sale) and the Nano Tech so far is my favorite. Anbody else using them with good result? :)

Yes, I'm using the same 3S 850mAH NanoTech batteries in my little SkyAngel F16 EDF.

They work well -- better than the stock battery. In fact I've put the stock battery into service in the FPV plane now to power the camera and video transmitter.

I have 2 x 1300 2 cell and 2x 4000 2 cell Nano Tech batteries and they are great though I do notice that the 4000s fade very quickly at the end of discharge, so much so that I have damaged a model having been caught out by this.

It had happened to me with a FlightPower EVO 25C (around 2200 mAh) battery , but it got much better after using it a few times - it "soften" up a bit. I do use NanoTechs of different capacities as well, so far - so good. Very happy :)

OK ... so we can agree that the Nano tech's from Hobby king are a good battery?
I need a few more 2200 3s's.
I am asking this because I cannot figure out the difference between a $85NZ 2200Nimh 3S 30C and a $18NZ 2200Nimh 3S 30C. Apart from the name the look the same, weigh the same, are supposed to have the same Capacity and discharge rate. So why are some 4 times the price of others. I doubt it is going to have 4 times the service cycle.

This might be an interesting experiment for Bruce?

Yes, I'm about to do a lot of lipo-testing.

I've got some Turnigy nano-tech packs but (to be honest) haven't actually noticed a big difference between them and similarly rated Zippy packs in actual use.

I've got the Gens Ace batteries here and I'll be getting a few more from HobbyKing to do some baseline testing on as well.

Other stuff to finish first though.
