Just wondered if anybody has had any experience with these packs?

I'm looking at the Turnigy Nano-Techs 5000mah 45C 10S packs or possibly the Voltz 4000mah 10S packs and would like to go for 10S stick type packs that are split as opposed to using 2x 5S packs for ease of storage, installing and removing from the mechanics etc..

I am assuming you are using these in a Logo600. If so, I know that Kyle Dahl uses separate packs and a piece of balsa ply to make them into a stick pack. Seems to work well and it opens up pack options.

If you want my opinion on these sorts of things ...

I personally dislike using 10s for anything. 10s packs are hard to find, expensive, limit your charging options, etc. You can go with a pair of 5s packs but the 5s packs are scarce compared to 6s packs. I prefer to use 12s on anything bigger than a 500. Using them opens up your options so much and lowers your operating currents by 20%. Win-win

Anyhow that is my opinion.

I agree with that opinion for the same reasons plus one more. If you have a minor crash, there is a good chance that one of the packs in a two pack setup will survive undamaged. Replacing a 5 or 6 cell pack is much easier on the wallet than replacing a 10S pack.

Thanks for the comments guys, I can see the reasons behind using 5S packs as opposed to 10S split packs and i may still go down this route and use 2x 5s packs but I was after comments and experiences with the Turnigy packs themselves, particularly the 10S packs.

Remember that the 10s pack is just 2 5s packs, better yet they actually all have the same 5000 45C cells in them. I assume that the use of that particular pack is very rare and so your pool of users is very small. So maybe you should really be asking about the Nano-Tech 45C 5000mAh packs in general, as they all have the same cells in the be it a 2s or 10s pack. Just a thought

I had a 10s 25c nano tech split back in my logo 14. Worked great until I crashed and it looked like an according. Unfortunatly I can't speak of longevity but the power was great big improvement over my older flight powers.

Came across your thread while searching for comments on turnigy nanos after learning that they make a 4000ma version of this battery that isnt a heavy brick like the 5000.

For what it is worth I have been using 2-5s zippy 5000 25c in my logo 600 for over a year....they have worked fine but they weigh 1287 grams...despite that, they are still lighter than any of the 5000 nanos.

There are some pics in the top of my gallery showing how they can be rigged to fit in the logo 600, and it looks like the e-6 is the same.

have you considered the 4000ma 45c nano? it weighs 1169 grams.

I would get back to you with actual experience on this battery but I ordered 10 more 25c 5000ma zippies before I heard about the 4000 nanos, might be a few months

Turnigy
I ordered nano packs over a month ago. I paid for the 5-7 day shipping. Hobby city ignored my e-mail. They want me to wait 45 days. I ordered Voltz 10s. They came in 2 days. I know things happen. They could at least respond.

This same thing happened to me on a HK order. After 45 days (51 days actually) no product showed up at my house. I finally had to call Paypal and my credit card company to file a claim. Guess what, Paypal requires claims be filed within 30 days. Good thing this was backed up by a credit card instead of my bank acount. I eventually got my money back from the card issuer. HK only told me to wait longer. They were no help at all!

HobbyKing is what it is. They sell cheap stuff that most hobbyists adore but price isn't everything. Anyhow the first rule of HK is to only order what is in stock if you want it in any reasonable amount of time.

you can pull 200+ amps and 5000+ watts thru a turnigy 6s 5000 40-50c pack for at least 125 cycles and 11 months.

$86 to your front door.

having said that, i'll probably try voltz next since they are available locally, have a warranty and are about the same price for me.

if you care for the battery properly it will take care of you. i suspect many new people screw up new packs that happen to be the 'cheap' turnigy's and blame it on hk.

not 100% sure but i have had great success in a very high powered setup for a year. have yet to have one just die for no reason.

not sure about the 'adore' part, however.

tjin and monkeynutz are right.

buy what they have in stock and from the USA warehouse or it can be months.

Zippies (or any lipo) benefit from slow charging in the beginning and light discharging by hovering around for a few minutes, during the first 4-5 cyclces.

balancing each cell takes time, especially for larger packs when they are 0.02-0.04v off out of the box, which will push the thermal limits of a balancer like the TP 210. So charge at 2A instead.

cook em slow, do not fast charge a zippy or expect customer service from them on anything!

I've been pounding my 4Ah, 6S, 40C Zippy's since day one. Charge them at a full 5C too. They are holding up better than my 4Ah, 6S, 25-50C Nano-tech packs after about 80 cycles on each. Zippy's are still rock hard and show no gain in IR. Nano's are starting to get a bit soft, don't hold full power toward end of flight like when new or like Zippy's. The IR readings are still very low 2.0mΩ ±0.5mΩ per cell.

I will try the Voltz packs next. I tested some 5.1Ah, 6S, 45C packs recently and they had the lowest IR I've ever measured (0.1 to 0.2mΩ ) on a 5.0±Ah pack.

still waiting
It has been another 2 weeks and I still do not have my batteries. Their response is "We are looking into it". I am flying my Voltz that showed in 2 days. Glad I did not wait. Mark H.

Still waiting
I ordered my batteries from HobbyCity 3/30/11. They have still not arrived. I sent an inquiry thru their contact us system. They sent me 2 generic working on it responses and then they closed the inquiry. I have no batteries and no money. Live support says they need more time. Order from them with extreme caution. I am switching to Voltz unless they make some big concessions. I have recommended them for the last time. Their 45 day wait period after paying for 5-7 days shipping is absurd. Glad I was able to get some other batteries. I just want my money back.

Then send it to sweden sometimes.. By the time your things arrived, it has probably gone to more places than you've been...

^^My opinion.. Since they sent it to Sweden once when I'm in Canada.
