|Chico, California, October 30, 2009 – A Main Hobbies today announced a ProTek R/C brand Lithium Polymer 3-cell super light weight battery pack for lightweight indoor aircraft, with 350mAh of capacity and a true 20C 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 super light weight Li-Poly battery is designed to power small lightweight aircraft usually flown indoors. This lightweight Li-Poly 20C battery pack is designed to fit radio controlled planes and helicopters that require a 3S 350mAh battery pack. These batteries are a true 20C battery pack, and with a full 20C discharge capacity and light weight, these batteries are a power house for compatible helicopters and airplanes!
The batteries will sell with a street price of $17.49. 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!
