    What is your RC LiPo of choice in 2024

    So I missed all of 2023, as I never put up a new thread and the 2022 ran all last year too - that's on me. This is the 2024 version of the "What is your RC LiPo battery of choice"!

    Question about charging batteries in the field…

    What do you guys use to charge your batteries when you’re out in the field? I currently have a imars d300 charger with gensacearespammers bashing batts. 2 3s and 2 4s. I would love to use a solar generator or battery bank. I’m just not sure what would work the best. If you guys could share what you do...

    Help a noob out

    Hello, I'm new to the hobby and bought a rtr gorgon kit a couple days ago. It was cool for the first run with the included battery, but after the first charge with the s120 charger it came with, it wouldn't last as long. I checked the light on the esc and the manual says its the lvc. Though I'm...

    Scientific Testing of RC Batteries

    Hello everyone. I am fairly new to the forum but I have noticed a lot of questions about batteries. Is this one good? Does that one last? I am an engineer that has been building testers to test electric vehicle battery packs for almost 10 years now. So most of what I deal with ranges from 6 or...

    LIPO voltage difference between two batteries

    Hi, after driving with the Outcast 8S EXB the two 4s packs always have about 0.1V difference per cell. One battery 3.5, the other 3.6 for example. The batteries are brand new 4s 6700mah, that i've just used maybe 5 times yet. Is this normal or is something wrong with the lipos? thanks in advance

    Fireteam What all fits in this thing?

    So, I need more batteries and my go to Zee 5200mah hard packs just BARELY don't fit in this thing. So, now I'm shopping for batteries. I know Spekrtum is recommended but I don't and won't have a Spektrum charger and they're only rated at up to 50c. I've been poking around looking at CNHL's...

    I’m wondering if there’s any solutions to fix both batteries, i’ve tried slow charging them but once i run them cell 3 on both batteries are below cells 1 and 2. i left both batteries fully charged or storage voltage (i can’t remember) after slow charging them a few times and this is a few days...

    Kraton How many batteries are enough?

    How many batteries are enough? I know it's kinda subjective, but how many batteries would you buy for each RC Truck you have?
  11. CrazyVorteks


    Hello everyone. I haven’t had an rc for a good while now. I recently purchased a vorteks 3s blx and I am wondering what is the best option to run for a battery. What will get me the most power but decent run times? I know that they pair them with the spektrum lineup of batteries and chargers...

    Kraton Over max battery lenght

    Hi to all I would like to buy a new Kraton 6S V5 and I wonder if the maximum battery length can be slightly exceeded.

    6s Charger Recommendations

    I just picked up a lightly used Kraton 6s V5 and it came with a 6s 5000mah 45C battery. I've read what I can in a short period of time on chargers (I'm completely new to lipo RCs) but am going in circles as to the best approach for getting a charger. Ideally I wanted to spend $100 or less...
