Reedy LiPo

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, Reedy is proud to introduce reliable and powerful 7.4V 20C Li-Po battery packs designed specifically for use in R/C cars and trucks.

A unique hard case design helps protects the battery from damage. Integrated locking nubs simulate sub-c cell profiles to allow the battery to be easily installed in slotted touring car chassis. By simply flipping the battery over, perfect installation in off-road vehicles is achieved.

Reedy makes available a choice of two capacities to suit enthusiasts’ application and budget requirements. Both come equipped with 14AWG silicone wire and a Tamiya® style connector. The 5000mAh Pro model comes equipped with 12AWG wire only so that the user can install his favorite plug.

Reedy Li-Po batteries offer many advantages over traditional Ni-MH batteries:

* Exclusive case design helps protect the battery from damage while allowing easy installation in touring car and off-road chassis
* Up to 30% longer runtime than NiMH batteries of equal capacity
* Lighter than Ni-MH batteries of equal capacity
* No limit to the number of consecutive uses
* Improved cell efficiency results in less energy lost as heat and greater power output
* Battery can be charged well in advance of use with no loss in performance
* Reduced maintenance
* Longer lifespan (up to 10 times!) reduces battery costs
* Balancing connector included - no complicated wiring required!

great find Steve,
I bet alot more manufacturers besides Reedy are developing LiPo packs to meet the demand. That Reedy5000 details look sweet... Everyone wants one now, I own two and I must admit never experienced anything like them. The power delivery and what feels like endless punch is awesome. The best thing about them is you only need two or three compared to six or seven NiMH.

With two 5000mAh LiPo packs you could run 3 qualifiers and a Main without needing to recharge them at the track. Very nice!

The other feature I like about LiPo vs NiMh is that the charge does not have to be fresh in order to get good punch. I have charged my LiPo batts. days in advance of a race.
