what are mye lipo options - 07.11.2013, 08:14 PM

Hello guys
I have sevral brushless vehicles boats and cars.
Tru the years I've been using turnigy in my brushless gadgets, but the have never been as big as they are now, but now som problems has appeared. In my e-baja I run 12 s 2x5s and 1 2s. After my run today the 2s was 4.4v one of the 5s was 14.1v and the last 5s was 19.3 this Is when the lvc hit in. Thees are brand new lipos chaged once for this run. And some thing simular has happend in my 55" boat. So im beginning to reconsider a other brand of lipos. And this is where I need healp from u guys. What brand shold I get when im getting new ones?


Sorry the bad english i'm from Norway

Does price matter? If not thunder power and hyperion are the big names in lipo.

Gens Ace seem to be middle of the road price wise, but I've only seen good reviews about them. They would be a good choice.

Do not buy max amps.

The Gens Ace come and go in stock at hobbypartz. You just have to look for them and buy them when they have them.

They have these two in stock, if you could make some combination of them fit in your vehicles:

I've had good results with the Gens Ace packs.

First and foremost, you need to address the real issue, not necessarily the lipos. Your ESC's are NOT working properly if your LVC is 2.2 per cell on a 2s pack.

Fix that before you invest more money, or you will just destroy more batteries (regardless of the quality or price). THAT is your real issue.

He's running them in series for 12s - so the total voltage seen by the esc was 37.8 volts = 3.15 volts/cell. If he had them fully charged at the outset, the problem is with the batteries.

Good point, that part I missed. What batteries are you looking for, do you want to go 2x6s strictly (I personally would recommend getting away from all the mixing of batteries)?
