ProTek Hard Case Race Packs

ProTek RC “Drag Pack” 2S 120C Si-Graphene + Shorty LiPo Battery (7.4V/5500mAh)

The ProTek R/C Drag Pack 2S 120C Si-Graphene + Shorty LiPo Battery was developed for Drag Racers who’s clubs do not allow the use of LiHV batteries. This pack delivers equal performance to the PTK-5114-20 6100mAh Shorty charged at 7.4V, but is legal for use when LiPo batteries are mandatory.

Weighing approximately 210 grams, the Drag Pack Shorty is lighter, while offering increased capacity compared to a standard Shorty LiPo. Graphene + 120C LiPo batteries take that a step further with more power and lower internal resistance when compared to the previous ProTek Graphene packs! Additionally, when compared to standard LiPo, Silicon Graphene cells deliver improved efficiency, lower operating temperatures, lower internal resistance, better run time, increased cycle life and increased voltage throughout the cycle.

Lab testing has shown that ProTek R/C Silicon Graphene packs have double the cycle life when charged at 1C rates, and can be charged at higher amp rates, with less risk of damage to the pack. More importantly, the discharge curve is flatter, meaning the cells maintain higher voltage throughout the discharge cycle with no significant drop off. Additionally, when compared to conventional LiPo batteries, Silicon Graphene batteries are lighter, providing a higher capacity per gram ratio. With 7.4V nominal voltage, 120C discharge ratings, incredibly high charge rates and a variety of models to choose from, ProTek R/C 120C Graphene + packs are perfect for racers and bashers that demand the absolute best.

Features:

  • Developed for drag racers that are limited to using LiPo batteries at specific events
  • Silicone Graphene offers improved power to weight ratio and efficiency, with lower operating temperatures, lower IR and lower overall CG
  • Silicone Graphene provides increased run time, increased cycle life and increased voltage throughout the cycle than a standard LiPo cell
  • Silicone Graphene can handle more abuse and deliver more current than a standard LiPo cell
  • Graphene offers increased capacity gram for gram when compared to standard LiPo cells
  • 10C max charge rates – 1C charge rate recommended for longest life

ProTek RC 4S Shorty 120C Low IR Silicon Graphene+ HV LiPo Battery (15.2V/6000mA)

The ProTek R/C 4S Shorty 120C Low IR 5600mAh Silicon Graphene+ HV Battery is a great option for 1/8 scale racers looking for a high capacity, high output and incredibly COMPACT 4S battery. Weighing approximately 425 grams, the 4S Shorty is almost 50 grams lighter than the PTK-5118-20 5600mAh 4S pack with more capacity! This offers more capacity output, in a compact shorty length that is perfect for weight conscious racers.

ProTek R/C Silicon Graphene batteries are the next step in the evolution of LiPo battery technology. Silicone Graphene construction offers improved efficiency, lower operating temperatures, lower internal resistance, better run time, increased cycle life and increased voltage!

When compared to standard LiPo and LiHV, Silicon Graphene cells deliver an array of benefits! Lab testing has shown that ProTek R/C Silicon Graphene packs have double the cycle life when charged at 1C rates, and can be charged at higher amp rates, with less risk of damage to the pack. More importantly, the discharge curve is flatter, meaning the cells maintain higher voltage throughout the discharge cycle – with no significant drop off. Additionally, when compared to conventional LiPo batteries Silicon Graphene batteries are lighter, providing a higher capacity per gram ratio. With 7.6V nominal voltage, 100C discharge ratings, incredibly high charge rates and ten different models to choose from, ProTek R/C Silicon Graphene packs are perfect for racers and bashers that demand the absolute best.

While these batteries are technically LiHV cells, they can still be charged with a standard LiPo charger. The overall voltage and capacity will be slightly less than if charged to LiHV specs, but the performance will be better than a standard LiPo thanks to the reduced weight and low internal resistance.

NOTE: This battery is not recommended for high current draw 8S applications

Features:

  • Shorty 4S configuration is lighter and smaller than the PTK-5118-20 4S pack, with increased capacity
  • Silicone Graphene can handle more abuse and deliver more current than a standard LiPo battery
  • Improved efficiency, lower operating temperatures, and lower internal resistance!
  • Increased run time, increased cycle life and increased voltage!
  • More capacity gram for gram when compared to standard LiPo cells
  • 10C max charge rates – 1C charge rate recommended for longest life
