What You Should Know about Lipo Batteries Packs

Battery choice is import for both electric and nitro vehicles. They both need batteries to operate. In a eclectric vehicle the batteries propel the vehicle and power the steering. In nitro vehicles the batteries power the steering and throttle servos while the nitro or gas engine propels the vehicle.

In electric vehicles, the choice comes down to NiCd, NiMh and Lipo battery packs. NiCd and NiMH batteries have long been the workhorse of electric vehicles. They are simple to charge, maintain and also tend to have long lifespans. These batteries however have been steadily losing popularity to Lithium Polymer (Lipo) batteries. Lipo batteries tend to require more maintenance and special charging methods but offer users a more exciting experience with their perfromance. According to the Lipo voltage, Lipo batteries can divided ino to 3.7V lipo, 2 cell lipo battery, 11.1V, 14.8V and other type of batteries. These batteries are all common voltage we can see in the market.
Lipo batteries have revolutionized the capabilities of electric models in this hobby. One key example vehicles at extremely affordable prices such as Traxxas’ XO1 model which is a ready to run vehicle capable of traveling at 100 mph right out the box without any modification or Proboat’s Miss Geico 29 and Blackjack 29 which are capable of traveling at speeds of over 40 mph across the water. Here we can recommend you gens ace RC airplane battery , all batteries are tailored for various scales of the RC Models such as electronic cars, nitro cars, aero planes, vessels and also other models, toys, electric tools, electric bikes, electric autos, digital products etc.
Lithium Polymer (LiPo) batteries need to be charged only with a LiPo compatible Charger. Most LiPo batteries have two wires and connectors. One wire is the main wire which is used to connect the battery to the vehicle and charger. The other wire with the small white plug is the balance cord. The balance cord is used to charge each cell of the battery evenly. Lipo batteries require more care than conventional Nicd and NiMh batteries. To prevent damage to the battery it is recommended to never leave LiPo batteries connected to the vehicle or the charge when not in use. This can drain the battery down to a voltage in which you will be unable to charge the battery again.
Many but not all electoronics speed controls have low voltage cutoffs to prevent the batteries in the model from draining down below the preset voltage threshold that will damage your lipo battery. To prevent damage to the battery it is also recommended to never leave LiPo batteries connected to the vehicle or the charger when not in use. In an abundance of caution it is also a good idea to charge and store LiPo batteries in a flame retardant LiPo charging sack.
