|Chico, California, August 4, 2010 – A Main Hobbies today announced a new line of ProTek R/C brand Lithium Polymer power battery packs for radio controlled airplanes and helicopters, with true 45C 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.
These packs include a Deans style T-plug installed. The balance adapter included is an Align/E-Flite style XH balance connector. The packs are available in multiple configurations from 3S for small planes and 450-size helicopters to large 6S packs for larger planes and 600-class electric helicopters.
The batteries will sell with a street price ranging from $59.99 to $229.99. 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!
