(All batteries are 550mah, not 500mah as the product image implies)
We hounded GNB for an improved non-HV 450mAh 80C cell for over a year and they finally made this 550mAh 90C cell. This cell should provide 20-25% more amperage than any previous pack made with GNB 450mAh cell which is simply FANTASTIC! The weight increase per cell is roughly 1.2g/cell or, ~9% weight increase per pack. This is easily our favorite sub 700mAh cell in the industry.
The 1S cell will bring out the last 10% of performance that could be had on the 1S BabyTooth platform while the 3S version will give you about a minute more flight time on the 3S TP3 and the 6S coming in at 87g should be just barely enough to feed those sub 250g 5" builds with 2004, ~1670kv or smaller motors with low load props.
We are extremely proud to offer this cell as it is exactly what we always hoped for. Non-HV, slightly more capacity, higher amperage rating and still low weight. We're always limited by our batteries and still are but this is a great step in the right direction.
- 1S-4S have XT30 connectors with 18awg wire.
- 6S has XT60 connector with 18awg wire.
- All weights are +/- ~0.7g
- 1S - 14.4g
- 2S - 29.9g
- 3S - 44.3g
- 4S - 58.0g
- 6S - 87.0g
- Cell size is about 26mm long and 18mm wide
- Cell thickness is about 6.5mm. Multiply by the S number to get thickness
These make my TP3's extra juicy :D Great packs.
I did back to back tests with blackbox logging between this GNB 3S 550 mAh and an RDQ 3S 550 mAh. Results: 78.9A burst/40.1A sustained on the RDQ and 57.8A burst/37.2A sustained on the GNB. I got 1 minute less flight time on the GNB and it felt very "soft" at the end, no punch. I have a suspicion the RDQ is actually a 600-650 mAh batt, because it's 10g heavier and I consistently get 580+ mAh of total draw on it according to my telemetry. Therefore, it's hard to say if this GNB is a true 550 and I'm used to an improperly labelled 650, or if it really is just average or below average as a 550.
Fastest shipping possible. If you don't like Bob, we can't be friends.
