My last were from Rotorquest in Toronto but stock varies. The 5500mah 25C weigh 855g.
I have bought from Hobbypartz in the USA as well but stock is another issue.
If you can find Pulse or Tattu they are the same quality.
Good luck finding what you want as they sell out fast.

Re: New battery packs from Turnigy

I have used the Graphenes for a while now and have so far found them superior in delivering power and staying cool . Compared to Nano-puffs from Turnigy they are a welcome change .I have bought expensive packs locally and found them REALLY not worth the money .Have been flying electric since before EMFSO existed so have a fair grasp of battery history and performance .

I keep a graph stuck on each pack so I can track it's history and performance as well as time in service . When the graph is full I put on a new one with the summary at the top . These are the stats on which I judge them .I know EXACTLY the pack histories . I find some flyer's statements of service life and cycles of cells optimistic to say the least .

To avoid over-discharges I use a voltage telemetry basically to give a low cell warning and allow lots of power to land with reserve for a missed approach.I can also monitor current but only to evaluate a new setup .I fly regularly in the 2.5 to 3.5 kw range on fairly large planes so battery performance is key .

So, based on this I have so far found the Graphenes superior at the price point and will likely stick with them .

Hello Barry and thanks for your input.
Can you share some details about shipping to Canada? What provider and has there been brokerage fees on delivery?
Thanks Eric

Re all lithiums : just order as usual from Kobby King and they will be shipped FedEx ,apparently the 100 watt hour limit has been dealt with .FedEx will bill you for duties etc . My last order was over twice the old limit with no problems .

Re: New battery packs from Turnigy

Have you guys checked out the new revolectrix G packs.? Just being released

Gens ace are good and revos have impressed me as well.
I have been trying a HV 1500 3S from a friend and it's great.

I have also tried the HV 6S 5500

The only problem or challenge these days is shipping lipo's from over the pond.
Revo will only ship fedex and they split the orders to comply to fedex.

Nev had posted a discount for revos site. I think it was "rus14"

Re: New battery packs from Turnigy

HV packs sound enticing but some consideration must be given to how much current your setup can take. Most EDF's are pushing it with standard batteries (headroom in the ESC and motor). The extra voltage will add more amps than you think.
