5300mah 4s 70C LiPO pack:
4s 70C 5300mah LiPo battery pack uses a hard case for protection
against punctures and warping.
4s LiPo battery means there are four cells totaling 14.8V and
can hold a maximum of 16.8 volts. This pack should not be discharged
below 12 volts as it will damage the cells. LiPo batteries are
unlike NiMH and NiCD packs. LiPOs can not be discharged below
3.0 volts per cell or damage becomes a risk to the pack.
battery is rated for 70C, which means you should be able to discharge
the pack at a rate of 371 amps without damage to the pack. It
is recommended using a pack that has double the Amp rate as your
ESC to ensure you have a healthy pack for a long time. For example:
If you ESC is rated for 80Amps, you should use a LiPo that can
handle a discharge of at least 160 continuous amps.
the "C" rating to amps:
= battery pack's MAh ÷ 1000
5300MAh 70C pack = (5300 ÷ 1000 = 5.3) that is 1C. Now
multiply by 70 to get 70C. (5.3 x 70 = 371 amps)
70C pack can discharge at 371 amps
is recommended you use a LiPo safe battery bag when charging LiPo
batteries. If over charged, LiPo batteries can swell, explode,
then catch fire.***
is recommended to charge your LiPo batteries at 1C, which in this
case, would be 5.3 amps. I have however charged them multiple
times using 7 amps.
at 7 amps, the packs did not even get warm.
