A Main Hobbies Announces ProTek R/C 3800mAh 5S 30C Power Packs
Chico, California, December 23, 2008 - A Main Hobbies today announced a ProTek R/C brand Lithium Polymer 5-cell 3800mAh 30C power pack. This pack has no connector installed, and comes with a 6-pin Align/E-Flite style balance connector. This lightweight Li-Poly 30C battery pack is designed to fit radio controlled cars, planes and helicopters that require a 5S 3800mAh battery pack, such as the T-Rex 600 when running on 10S batteries. These batteries are a true 30C battery pack, and with a full 30C discharge capacity and light weight, these batteries are a power house for compatible cars, helicopters and airplanes!

The batteries will sell with a street price of $169.99. But don't be fooled by the low price! These batteries will hold their own against 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 helicopter or airplane 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!
