Reedy Zappers SG2 Competition HV-LiPo batteries

See: Team Associated

Team Associated have introduced the new Reedy Zappers SG2 HV-LiPo batteries. Zappers SG2 batteries continue to utilize silicon-graphene construction but with an emphasis on reducing internal resistance and increasing cycle life. Zappers SG2 batteries feature a 7.6 nominal voltage, meaning that with a suitable charger, the battery can be safely charged to 4.35V/cell. It is not a secret that more voltage equals more power, so there is no easier way to achieve a performance advantage than a higher charge voltage! However, even when the typical 8.40V (4.2V/cell) charging limit is enforced, Zappers SG2 still offers a significant advantage thanks to a flatter discharge curve, which results in more voltage deeper into the race. Zappers SG2 batteries are available in low-profile (LP) stick and shorty versions. A high quality, durable hard case helps prevent damage while embedded socket connectors keep power-robbing resistance to a minimum. Male ESC connectors are included.
