|Chico, California, February 17, 2010 – A Main Hobbies today announced a ProTek R/C brand Lithium Polymer 2-cell hard case saddle battery pack for radio controlled cars, with 5200mAh of capacity and a true 45C constant discharge rate. This pack includes bullet connectors for charging, with a Deans style T-plug installed. The balance adapter included is a 3-pin Align/E-Flite style XH balance connector.
This battery is built using the same case that is used in our other ROAR approved batteries, but this specific battery is still awaiting ROAR approval. The packs are thin enough to fit into all touring cars and off-road vehicles that would normally accept a saddle pack battery, and is easily secured in vehicles designed for saddle pack NiMH race packs.
For mounting in a saddle pack configuration for cars like the Associated B44, we recommend you mount the battery flat to the chassis and use some kind of velcro or servo tape to secure them to the upper battery strap. This will stop the batteries from sliding out of the car sideways. To mount them flat you may need to remove the plastic battery holder from the chassis. If you have a strap permanently attached to the top of each battery, you can easily remove them from the vehicle for charging and simply put another battery in its place.
The batteries will sell with a street price of $99.99, but don’t be fooled by the low price! These batteries perform as good as or better than the most popular name brand batteries on the market today.
2C Maximum Charge Rate!
This battery pack is designed to be safely charged at 2C, twice the normal 1C charge rate required for most Li-Poly battery packs. With a 2C charge rate, you can get these battery packs fully charged in only slightly more than half the time it will take to complete a 1C charge.
CRASH Protection Guarantee!
This battery pack is covered by the ProTek R/C manufacturer "Crash Protection Guarantee"! If you crash your vehicle badly enough to damage the battery pack, you can send the damaged battery pack back to ProTek R/C and purchase a replacement battery for 50% off the regular sale price!
