Epic now offers ReVtech LiPo receiver packs just in time for the outdoor nitro season. Check out all the details in the press release below:
New from ReVtech are 2 new Li-Po receiver packs designed especially for Nitro vehicles. Made with the highest quality cells, covered in extra heavy duty shrink and sporting 20awg leads, you will not find a better or more dependable receiver pack anywhere. Super light weight and designed to power the electronics of 1/10th & 1/8th scale gas powered race cars, as well as boats and some planes.
Racers have asked us for Li-Po packs vs the Li-Fe so they have the higher voltage that some radio systems will allow you to run, providing higher torque and faster operating servos. This is a big advantage with the new heavier 1/10th and 1/8th vehicles. Each pack is kevlar wrapped and covered in heavy duty orange shrink. The packs have universal plug for operation as well as a balance plug.
Li-Po receiver packs produce more power then Li-Fe so there is a big advantage using these both when your radio system allows full use of 7.2 volts and when used on a system that restricts voltage with a voltage regulator the voltage will stay high and your servos fast for longer runs.
You will need a Li-Po specific charger to charge the pack (NiMH or Ni-CD only chargers WILL NOT WORK!) You must not over discharge the Li-Poly battery pack. Be sure to ready your chargers instruction for the correct settings.
