Retired RETIRED

This product has been retired from our catalog and is no longer for sale.

This page is made available for those looking for datasheets and the simply curious. Please refer to the description to see if a replacement part is available.

Replacement: PRT-11855. This new rev has a Dean's Connector in place of the JST-RCY discharge plug. This page is for reference only.

Description: This high discharge LiPo is a great way to power any R/C, robotic, or portable project. This is an excellent choice for anything that requires a small battery with a lot of punch. The voltage is low enough not to tax your regulating circuits, and the discharge rate is high enough to accommodate a lot of electronics and a few small motors.

The battery has two cells and outputs 7.4V storing 1000mAh of charge. Because this is a dual cell battery pack, a special charger is needed. This battery is not compatible with single cell chargers. A compatible charger is listed below.

Note: Care should be taken not to short circuit or overtax these batteries because they don't have any built-in protection circuit.

Features:

  • 7.4V 2-cell pack
  • 1000mAh of charge
  • 25C continuous discharge rate
  • JST-XH charge plug
  • JST-RCY discharge plug

Dimensions: 70mm x 35mm x 18mm

Weight: 85g (2.99oz)

  • Anybody had issues with the wiring on these batteries? The connection to either the battery or discharge plug seems to have problems on mine - wiggling the wire can disrupt power.

  • I’m trying to create my own protection circuit. How low can these batteries safely be drained?

  • Just saying that these batteries are not Lithium Ion but Lithium Polymer.

  • I ordered this recently and it does not come with the connector pictured. It comes with a T-connector and JST-XH charge plug. It does NOT come with the JST-RCY discharge plug as described.

  • Pinout for charger or datasheet at least?

    • Same as for any battery pack. You’ve got 2 connectors coming out of this. For your balancer/charger, you would use the 3-wire connector. Between Black (negative/minus/anode) and Yellow is one cell, and between Yellow and Red (positive/plus/cathode) is the other one. You don’t really need to know about this, though.. the charger should have a 3-pole female connector socket that you would push it into (only fits one way). The other connector is for discharging, between the black and the red are both cells in series.

  • Got my batteries (2 of these) and charger today (sku: PRT-10473) and started reading the manual for the charger. It wants to know:
    1. Amperage of the charge
    2. Charge volts
    I set it to .1 amp and 7.65v, connected the batteries charge and discharge plug (per manual for balance charging) and it seems to be charging (5 min without and explosion :)
    What are the correct amp & volts to charge these critters? Since it’s a dual cell I feel confident about the 7.4v, not so much about the amps.

  • Is the height actually 13mm? 1.3mm doesn’t seem plausible.

  • 25C * 1000mAh = 25A max discharge rate! Though not for very long, 1Ah/25A = 0.04 hours or 2.4 minutes. These are still great for quadcopters, etc. that need a whole lot of power for a little bit of time.
