The Gens Ace Bashing 5200mAh G-Tech hard pack is designed for use with Gens Ace G-Tech smart chargers and is a great way to have a smart battery ecosystem for your favorite RC vehicles. Designed for use in all types of RC vehicles, this 5200mAh 2S pack is sized and shaped to fit most car and truck battery trays, measuring 138mm long by 46mm wide and sitting at about 25mm high. The pack features a hard-plastic external case for protection and is outfitted with sturdy 12-gauge wiring for ideal power transfer with minimal resistance.
What really sets this Gens Ace Bashing pack apart from the rest is the latest G-Tech plug, a balance charging plug with an integrated smart chip specially designed for Gens Ace G-Tech chargers. This handy new plug design makes it extremely easy to charge your G-Tech battery by automatically adjusting battery info and charging parameters as soon as it’s plugged into a G-Tech charger.
The balance plug still conforms to the usual JST-style balance port, so the battery can be charged perfectly fine without a G-Tech charger as well. As with other newer battery packs in the Gens Ace lineup, the Bashing 5200mAh G-Tech pack comes with Gens Ace’s innovative 1TO3 swappable plug. This unique plug design includes three different plug adapters that securely snap into place, allowing you to custom tailor the battery plug as needed with the included XT60, Deans/T-plug, or C3-style connectors.
As mentioned, the Bashing G-Tech pack is the perfect size for most RC vehicle uses. The hard case is shaped to fit within most car and truck battery trays while keeping the battery cells safe, which makes it a great addition to just about any collection. I especially like the new G-Tech balance connector and the overall G-Tech ecosystem. The plug itself is nice and sturdy and when combined with a G-Tech charger it makes the charging process extremely easy. The interchangeable 1TO3 terminal connector is a great touch as well, as it allows use of the pack in multiple vehicles without having to worry about lugging around bulky adapters. Simply remove and replace the 1TO3 adapter as needed and you’re ready to go. All in all, the Gens Ace Bashing G-Tech LiPo is an excellent all-around 2S LiPo battery pack.
