<--- this will fit a bit better and it has a 4C charge rate, the others are 2, so I'm guessing this will charge 2x as fast as the others?
I modified the risers that seperate the top and bottom plate of the phoenix so they are slightly farther away from each other then the stock ones.
The clearances I have between the top and bottom plate is 23.41mm
The available width I have is 52.40mm
then the length I have available is 150mm... which is basically the entire length of the robot... so wires will be sticking out
I think I better consult the experts.. since I'm just driving servos can I get away with a 20C discharge or even a 10?
Forgive me if this question is a bit stupid, I have never bought a lipo before.
And then I would need one of these http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/stor ... oduct=6233
the Turnigy Ubec 15A regulator.
I've bought something that appear to be the same battery (same product id) but from the International Warehouse http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=10098
. Looking at the latest comment this seem to be another product. I've not tested mine yet. And they are rated 2C charge, not 4. I'm just hoping its not just a piece of crap. You normally get what you pay for.
Anyway, most of the LiPo's are 1C for charging. So 2C is very good too. Also, you need a pretty beefy charger to do 4C on a 5000mAh battery.
What I like with the hardcase is that the wires don't stick out but upward from the case.
I guess you just have to test them to see if they perform ok. A balance charger is always recommended.
Yes, 10C (=50 Amps) is more than enough for robotics.
The regulator is needed for powering the HS-645's, not a stupid Q at all.
