Reedy Zappers SG3 Competition 2S HV-LiPo batteries

See: Reedy

Associated Electrics have introduced the new line of the Reedy Zappers SG3 Competition 2S HV-LiPo batteries. Zappers SG3 batteries feature state-of-the-art LiPo chemistry with an emphasis on lower internal resistance with improved durability and cycle-life. More power, improved durability, and high capacity provide world-class performance. Zappers SG3 batteries feature a 7.6 nominal voltage, which means that 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 increase power and top speed than a higher charge voltage! Even when the typical 8.40V (4.2V/cell) charging limit is enforced, Zappers SG3 cells shine thanks to their inherently flat discharge curve, which results in higher voltage deeper into the race.
