1800mAh 3S 11.1V G8 Pro Force 70C LiPo

Key Features

  • Capable of maximum continuous discharge rates up to 70C and burst of 140C
  • Ultra-fast charge capable of rates up to 12C (with approved chargers and balancers)

Overview

When your high-power EDF, 3D helicopter or other applications demands nothing but the best, the Pro Force 70C series batteries deliver 10% more power and up to 10% higher initial voltage for longer sustained power over G6 Thunder Power RC 65C batteries. Now up to 10% smaller and up to 3% lighter than the G6 equivalent resulting in the industry-leading highest energy and power density with the smallest size and lowest weight combined; in comparison to similar capacity and discharge rated batteries available. The ultra-low internal resistance (IR) affords for the long cycle life and ultra-fast charge rates up to technology leading 12C rate (when using approved chargers and balancers) for charge times in 5 minutes or less. Pilots will also benefit from higher retained initial voltage resulting in more power/punch longer, than previous generation batteries.

Battery Voltage: 11.1V
Cell Configuration: 3S1P
Connector Type: Open Ends

FAQs

LI-PO Do's and Don'ts

DO: Use a charger that is specifically designed to charge Li-Po batteries. Using chargers that are not Li-Po-specific can be an extreme fire hazard.

DO: Li-Pos don't develop memory or voltage depression characteristics like Ni-Cds. Charge them without the worry of cycling or discharging them first.

DO: Store Li-Pos at least partially charged. Li-Pos will maintain their performance levels over time, even during non-use, much better than Ni-Cds, and there's no need to cycle them.

DON'T: Never fully discharge your Li-Po battery pack. Most electronic speed controls have a voltage cutoff that will prevent over-discharging the battery, but were designed for Ni-Cd & Ni-MH batteries. Be sure that your ESC features the proper Li-Po cut off voltage of 3V per cell (6V for 2-cell packs, 9V for 3-cell packs and so on). Discharging a Li-Po cell beyond its critical minimum voltage will cause damage to the battery.

DON'T: Shorting a Li-Po pack for even an instant can cause damage to the battery. Whether the pack has been shorted when new, while adding or changing the connector, when fully charged or fully discharged, the pack should not be charged without extreme caution. Be sure to take care when soldering connectors and during handling or charging to prevent shorts.

DON'T: If you have a crash and the battery is damaged, don't put the battery in your car or house immediately after a crash. It's possible that a chemical reaction can take place in the damaged battery that could cause a fire. Put the battery in a safe place for at least one hour.

What is a typical Li-Po pack's voltage?

Li-Po packs are available in 2- and 3-cell varieties (Thunder Power packs are also available in 4-cell and 5-cell models). Each cell in the pack has a nominal voltage of 3.7V and multi-cell packs are wired in series.

2-cell pack = 7.4V

3-cell pack = 11.1V

4-cell pack = 14.8V

5-cell pack = 18.5V

What is the "C" rating for?

A "C" or "current" rating indicates the maximum recommended average discharge current for that pack and is used to help you determine the maximum discharge rate. To determine the maximum discharge rate, multiply the "C" rating by the pack capacity (i.e. 1900mAh cell x 6C rating = maximum discharge rate of 11,400mA or 11.4A).

What is the "S" number for?

The "S" number indicates the number of cells in series. For instance, 2S indicates a 2 series (2-cell) pack.

What is the "P" number for?

Larger packs use the "P" number to indicate the number of cells in parallel. For instance 3S2P indicates the pack is built with 2 cells in parallel, then 3 sets of the 2 parallel cells are joined in series.

Can I use my regular peak charger to charge Li-Po packs?

Li-Po batteries require a very different charge method than Ni-Cd or Ni-MH cells and can catch fire if charged with a standard, non-Li-Po charger. Li-Po batteries do not "peak" when fully charged and require a "constant current/constant voltage" capable charger.

Why are some models available with or without a JST connector?

JST connectors have become the standard on many electronic speed controls and chargers for slow flyer and park flyer applications. While it's true that the JST connector does have a discharge output limitation, it is still the first choice of beginning modelers or those who do not discharge at very high rates.
