    RE: Aquacraft Revolt 30

    ORIGINAL: hobby_man


    ORIGINAL: Brad Mc

    Hey, I have a question about my lipos for my Revolt 30.* I have 2 of the 2 of the GrimRacer 7.4V, 5000 mAh batteries.* Attached is a picture of my charger while charging and a picture of my meter immediately after charging.* How is it possible for each cell to be over 3.7V??* Why does my charger show 8.16V while charging??* I removed the battereies from the charger as soon as they were complete.* My meter showed both batteries charged up to 99%.

    Please help me understand, thanks!!

    each cell of any lipo battery shows a voltage of 4.2 when charged
    each cell should be at 4.2 so the cells are balanced/charged, if you get one cell at 4.2/4.19 or so and the other cell only gets to 4.0/4.01 the cells are off
    you should follow the 80% rule, do not discharge any more than 80% of the batteries capacity
    5000mah x .8 = 4000 you should see about 4000 mah being charged back into the battery
    at the 80% discharge your cells will be about 3.6 volts each
    if you over discharge the battery, say you take 5200 mah out of the battery your cells could drop below 3.0 volts and then the charger will give you a low voltage error and it will not charge them capacity
    At 3.6v your packs have less than 10%

    In the month of October you must race in that pond in Greely CO, behind the strip mall

    off by .057
    not even close bro
    you said 3.6v per cell is at 20% capacity..
    [:-]3.6v is more like 8% left
    20% is 3.747v per cell left in the pack
    3.747 - 3.6 = .147
    running lipos to 3.6v and thinking you have 20% left could spell boom if you ran them another 10 to 15%

    RE: Aquacraft Revolt 30

    Looking at these batteries. Some of the Heli guys really like them. This is my first boat. Will these be enough C for the Revolt?

    I\'\'\'\'m in a jet!!! What could possibly go wrong?

    only one real way to find out cuz C ratings are kinda bogus right now is to try them out..
    wish I could figure how to nav through that site I would like to try some 4s packs

    I have a feeling that these batteries are rated appropriately. Seems like they are a very serious battery manufacturer. What size 4S are you looking for?

    Here is a 4S 5000

    I had originally ordered some Turnigy's from HK but they have been backordered forever. So I stumpled across these and the price is about the same and this is a US company. I submiitted my order last night and they've already shipped. So far very pleased.
