Quick question, did it come with a charger
Are these batteries still holding up ok? Do I need a Male or female charging lead to connect to these?
i did buy those battery mt expirience those blue color keep puffed even if you never use them hobby king refund me rino battery and zippy better than those battery trust me
How are they going after a year of use?
Can i use this battery on MN D90 RC? Please i need help
Thanks! Does these batteries can supply more than 2.2A? If i want to supply a 3A load, does it can handle the current?
Regards from Brazil.
Another excellent in depth review, well done :) I have tried several different types of batteries from Hobby King over the years and these blue Turnigy and the Zippy Flightmax have proven to be the best for long term consistent performance for a very reasonable price. They often go on sale on Black Friday and other big promotions. With respect to the weight discrepancy, unfortunately over the years I have found that Hobby King often lists the "shipping" weight, not the actual weight, so the extra grams might have been packaging, not sure, but I have found this discrepancy often. It makes it a bit of a crap shoot when ordering if weight is of real importance. Looking forward to more review and test info :) Cheers, Scott
Thanks for the helpful information. Waiting for the follow up video :)
dam I just got two of them. I hope they are good ones. I was told these where really good.
You got it replaced?
my battery is turnigy battery is bad,,same to same this case
How does one know what is considered "safe" for a particular lipo? 34 amps for this 3S???
Watching *10 year old Videos!!!*
You guys NEED to do these tests on modern Batries!!!! 👍👍
Very valid and useful.
Hello! I have an important question please.. Is it ok to use an AR Parrot Drone ( Turnigy 1300mah li-po high discharge battery ) for an airsoft gun when reconditioned? I mean is it compatible for use? Hoping for response thanks!
Theres people testing that lipo safe bag.. it doenst work its weight in money.
Don't we mention Nicads anymore?
Can you make a video of all the parts needed (Besides transmitter) to make an airplane fly with the cheapest items for each part?
BOM DIA TEM COMO LIGAR UM MOTOR DE IMPRESSORA EM UMA BATERIA DE LIPO 2.2 11V?
I charge in an ammo box if I flares up I will kick it shut.
Please, please get rid of Josh Scott. He is just annoying.
What power supply are you using for the Accucell? I have one and i'm unsure of which to buy. I'm currently using 18V 1.5A which produces a slow charge.
does Flight Test have any quadcopter for beginners like the rc planes for beginners series?
Can you please do a review on the syma x5c-1 thank you
Use the buddy code below for 7/11 to 7/25/15
replace the dot with a period.
Turnigy 4000mAH 20s 3s lipo pack for only $19.83, save ~$5
for a 3000mAh version use
I also have a wing camera code

You discharge a Lipo at that rate to that volts/cell, you are going to kill it in a few cycles. Especially Chinese lipos. But really, no Lipo will take that kind of punishment for long. You were reading at least 130F on the outside of the battery at the end of that run, which means that internally it was probably well beyond 140F. I guarantee that if you do that a couple more times that the battery will puff up like a dead fish.
Heat is what kills lipos, and in the last 10 to 20% of the capacity of a lipo, the internal resistance goes up substantially. If you are pulling high amps at that time, you are going to be generating a LOT of heat. If your LiPo is hot after a flight - you ARE killing it.
Best rule of thumb I have discovered over many years of flying with Lipos is to never discharge a battery under flight loads by more than 75% of it's stated capacity. Over time, you will have to adjust that downwards, because as they age, their internal resistance goes up and their useful capacity steadily goes down.
Lipos are at their best on their first cycle, and it's all downhill from there.
What voltage did you end the test at? I'm using these packs and I've not yet been able to get full capacity out of one yet, tho I never take them below 3.1v (per cell). I'm usually getting about 1150-1220mAh from the 3s 1.3Ah ones.
Also from the 3s 1.0's I have (Turnigy 25-30C's) I'm only geting at max 960mAh (usually more like 900-920). I notice this is several years old, do you think the quality of the turnigy cells has diminished some compared to back then?
And before you try to blame me / my methods- I'm using new packs that have been properly broken in. I'm an electrical engineer by trade and have a VERY good understanding of Li batteries of all types.
I'd never seen this video before and it's strange that this very pack 5 years ago was performing at well over 100% capacity but now days they dont even make it to 100% rated cap :( I've tested all my cells (over 2 dozen) and that's how they all are...
lmao.. I always get a good laugh when they have him on the set.
Why pronounce it "Lie-Poh", when it's short for "Lithium-Polymer" LiPo.
You don't say "Lietiuhm"
Also, wouldn't a lipo-bag be a bad thing while charging? - How can you monitor your battery while charging when you can't see it? I've had a 1S battery swell up to a ball while charging, but I would never have seen that in a bag. I just ripped it out of the charger and put it outside, no smoke, nothing happened.
Also, when you store multiple batteries in the same bag, wouldn't one catching fire ignite all the other ones?...
When I charge (Accucel 6 and IMAX B6) I always check if the battery is swelled up before charging, and continuously checking it while charging, and checking if charger or battery gets hot. I always charge at 1C.
Its like big Josh treats little Josh like a 6 year old, and little Josh respond accordingly. Nice video...thanks guys.
Right now the year is 2014 and you guys have come SO far from this old episode
I have had great luck with turnigy and zippys. Great packs at a great price.
Would it fit in a rustler vxl
HK announce Promo for Turnigy 3S 2200mAh 20C - but in Russian warehouse this battery are selling without any discount while all the other warehouses the discount works - what does this means? Promo is not working on Russian warehouse?
Would have bought 10, but not possible so skipping completely..
Why does this have so many dislikes! Why is everyone butthurt about this sale, it;s great! At least their having a sale! And shipping costs are actually fairly reasonable, Not all shipping companies will handle Lithium batteries... and ive never hand any bad issues with parcelforce and i think hobbyking are right to go with them for their large orders or risky products e.g. Lipos. And ppl who are butthurt cos its all on backorder... well the reason its on backorder is cos about 10.000 other ppl also logged on at 5am and tired to buy the same product ad you, your were just un luckly, deal with it XD Get a grip ppl, ENJOY THE SALE FFS! XD
# the glitter
Гандоны, не больше 2х штук на рыло и на рускладе нет((( Европейцы и без акций могут купить, а чего нам делать, нищебродам?????????
I think it is BS that there's nothing in international warehouse I would like to get the same offer like everyone else :(
But they are only the 20c rating. Need at least 25c-35c please.
Why not put some 5000mah 4s batteries on sale? Field charging stations are all the new rage.
Lame. Am I supposed to use this to charge my phone?
wtf!! 20C 😥
Just got 2 too finish off my fpv ground station
Because of this bad deal pls make 1 extra day with a perfect offer.
20c = no power
Wow. You sure have perfected the delicate art of disappointment.
I fly 2200mAh on my 450 helicopter... 20C will last me 10 flights before i puff em. Really hoped they would do something with the Graphenes... or better: 50% off everything that is resident in your wishlist ;)
Oh come on! I was looking forward to something worth but...nah thanks...another useless deal.
the luke it's not free shipping no one knows what it is till tomorrow
