A Main Hobbies Announces ProTek R/C 1S "Supreme Power" Li-Poly 40C Hard Case Battery Pack (3.7V/5000mAh, Wired Deans)
Chico, California, January 19, 2010 – A Main Hobbies today announced a ProTek R/C brand Lithium Polymer 1-cell hard case power battery pack for radio controlled cars, with 5000mAh of capacity and a true 40C constant discharge rate. Lithium Polymer batteries produce longer run-time with less weight than traditional NiMH cells and have no memory effect! They can be charged hours or days ahead of time and may be used and recharged limitless times per day.

This pack includes a Deans style T-plug installed. The balance adapter included is a 3-pin Align/E-Flite style XH balance connector. These battery packs are built using a hard plastic pack that is required for use at ROAR sanctioned tracks and events. The packs are thin enough to fit into all pan cars, and can be secure in vehicles designed for side by side 4 cell NiMH race packs.

These ProTek R/C battery packs can be used in any application where you need 4-cell NiMH race packs, such as 1/12th, or 1/10th scale electric pan cars. These packs are significantly lighter when compared to regular NiMH race packs. This makes the overall vehicle weight lighter for significantly improved acceleration.

Note: Some vehicles may require some re-balancing if the light weight of these batteries cause some handling changes. To get the vehicle to balance correctly, add some weight to the battery side of the vehicle.

The batteries will sell with a street price of $54.99. But don’t be fooled by the low price! These batteries perform as good as or better than the most popular name brand batteries on the market today.

2C Maximum Charge Rate!
This battery pack is designed to be safely charged at 2C, twice the normal 1C charge rate required for most Li-Poly battery packs. With a 2C charge rate, you can get these battery packs fully charged in only slightly more than half the time it will take to complete a 1C charge.

CRASH Protection Guarantee!
This battery pack is covered by the ProTek R/C manufacturer "Crash Protection Guarantee"! If you crash your vehicle badly enough to damage the battery pack, you can send the damaged battery pack back to ProTek R/C and purchase a replacement battery for 50% off the regular sale price!
