Hands-on: Turnigy Graphene LiPo batteries

LiPo battery life is hard. Charged, discharged, beaten in a crash, charged, discharged and so on. Because last week I had to utilize few of my old Turnigy Nano-tech LiPos, I’ve decided to try something “better” this time. Turnigy Graphene 1300mAh 3S 65C. Package came today and this is what I got:

Turnigy Graphene LiPo there is even a bag inside

  • Box is huge. Really, it would fit 3 LiPos, not just one. Kind of waste. But box is nice enough to reuse for something else
  • Black is the color of choice here. Black and red. I like this combination
  • They are noticeably heavier than 1300mAh 3S Nano-tech LiPos. But they have 20C more, so that was predictable

More after the weekend when I should be able to give them a first try.

  1. I’m not entirely sure I get “C”, but is this so that you can run more things from the battery? As opposed to getting more battery life out of one battery?

    1. Yeap, C is more less about how much current (Amps) you can draw safely from battery. Max safe current is C * Capacity (in Ah, so divide mAh by 1000)
