Reedy Zappers SG2 Competition LiHV 4S batteries

See: Team Associated

Team Associated have introduced the new Reedy Zappers SG2 competition LiHV 4S battery packs. The Zappers SG2 batteries continue to utilize silicon-graphene construction but with an emphasis on reducing internal resistance and increasing cycle life. They feature HV chemistry, which means that with a suitable charger, the battery can be safely charged to 4.35V/cell. However, even when the typical 4.2V/cell charging limit is enforced, Zappers SG2 batteries still offer a significant advantage thanks to a flatter discharge curve, which results in more voltage deeper into the race. Zappers SG2 batteries are available in two versions, 5200mAh low-profile for improved handling and 6400mAh high-capacity for conditions that require maximum run time. A high-quality durable hard case helps prevent damage while embedded socket connectors keep power-robbing resistance to a minimum. Male ESC connectors and a 4S balance lead are included.
