Turnigy Nano-Tech A-Spec LiPo Batteries

Aug 16, 2012 3 Comments by

These new LiPos are designed around carbon nano tube technology to produce the least internal resistance, lowest heat generation and highest discharge voltage of any battery on the market. Check out the official press release below for all the details:

In the future, history will tell us that HobbyKing changed the r/c world! One of these changes occurred on the 15th of August 2012 when HobbyKing released the all new A-Spec battery range. Anticipation has been building for the release of the world’s most powerful lipo battery after they were previewed at the 2012 3D Masters. Now they are here!

The secret to the A-Spec’s strength lies in its chemical structure. Designed around Carbon Nano Tube technology it has the least internal resistance, lowest heat generation and highest discharge voltage of any battery on the market. Looking at the batteries, no detail has been spared, even down to the gold plated balance leads for more accurate balancing!

At professional level, these batteries caused a stir at the 3D Masters with sponsored pilots queuing up to try them. This has led to some pilots dropping their current sponsors in favour of the new A-Specs!

In truth these batteries could be sold at a premium as they are that much better than their opposition. However true to HobbyKing’s ethos of being the people’s global hobby shop, they have maintained their in-expensive pricing.

The A-Specs cost around half that of other batteries on the market and have better performance.

    I have yet to try any of their nano tech batteries but I’ve been entrigued by them. My only hesitation is that half of my Turnigy battery fleet has failed early in their life. The other half is doing fine. Being that they are so much less expensive, I find it to be worth the risk but lately the batteries I would pick are out of stock. I guess if I want them, I’m gonna have to be more vigilant about shopping when they restock. But after all the waiting, ordering, shipping expense, and more waiting, I still wonder if they are worth it. Would like to see some longevity reviews.

    Thanks for the comment, we might be able to do a story like this down the road.

    I have been using the Nano – Tech batteries a lot for 2s and 4s applications.

    I have had a lot of success with the 4s nano tech batteries and 2s hard case versions as well.

    I recently picked up a 1s A Spec and 2s A Spec Shorty packs and have had no issues so far but it’s only been about 3 weeks of use.

    In all I own about 8 Turnigy packs for various applications (Starter boxes, racing, ect). I have only ever had 1 pack fail and it was a 4s blue soft pack that finally had a cell start to go bad after 2 seasons of racing. Since then I have had 3 Reedy 4s packs have cells not balance properly early, an internal connection failure, and a bad cell on arrival.

    For what it’s worth in my experience Turnigy is worth it.
