ProTek R/C "Sport Race" 3S LiPo Packs With Traxxas Connectors



New from ProTek R/C:

A Main Hobbies' brand ProTek R/C announces its new "Sport Race" 25C Li-Poly Hard Case Battery Pack (11.1V/5000mAh) with Traxxas plug installed, making it the perfect drop-in choice for Traxxas' VXL-equipped cars and trucks.

This 3S LiPo battery pack has been developed specifically for Traxxas 3S LiPo applications and is recommended for the Traxxas Slash VXL, Slash 4x4 VXL, E-Revo Brushless, E-Maxx Brushless and XO-1 vehicles, as well as the Traxxas Spartan boat. The battery features a genuine Traxxas High-Current Connector® for the ultimate in efficiency, ease of use and high current handling capabilities for charging/discharging, as well as a 4-pin Align/E-Flite style XH balance connector for balancing. Although these are not ROAR approved hardcase batteries, they are built using a hard lexan shell to help prevent damage in the event of a crash.

Note: These should only be used in vehicles equipped with low voltage protection and are not recommended for Traxxas' E-Revo, E-Maxx, Slash or Slash 4x4 vehicles fitted with brushed motors. Also, some vehicles may require re-balancing, as the reduced weight of these batteries may cause handling changes. To get the vehicle to balance correctly, add weight to the battery side of the vehicle.

Unlike most other Lithium Polymer batteries, these batteries can be charged at up to 2 times the rated current, or 2C! If your charger is capable, you can charge these batteries at up 10A!

CRASH Protection Guarantee!

ProTek RC offers a 50% Damage Replacement program for one (1) year after original purchase date on all batteries that have been damaged due to impact, over-discharging, or improper charging that have not been modified or disassembled. The damaged battery will be replaced by a comparable battery at 50% off of its retail cost.

Specifications:
  • Type: Lithium Polymer
  • Capacity: 5000mAh
  • Voltage: 11.V nominal
  • Connector Type: Traxxas Connector
  • Balancer Type: 4-Pin Align/E-Flite compatible (XH)

  • Weight: 360g
  • Configuration: 3S
  • Dimensions (WxLxH): 45x157x25mm
  • Maximum Charge Rate: 2C (10A)!

Wrong picture? Because that does not look like a hard case pack to me?

WilliamG, it's the correct battery; check out the end of the second paragraph: "Although these are not ROAR approved hardcase batteries, they are built using a hard lexan shell to help prevent damage in the event of a crash."

While the new packs don't use the hard plastic case of our ROAR approved surface packs, the new batteries use a Lexan shield similar to Traxxas' own LiPo packs.

Then it's a shielded battery, not a hard-case. Call a spade a spade.

How exactly do you get a hard lexan shell to conform to the ridges in the batteries?....That looks like HD shrink wrap to me...maybe made with Lexan?

I had assumed it was kinda a plate top and bottom. Or maybe it's just really thin and essentially contours the battery?

Ya know, that's a good thought...It almost looks like there is a plate in there...



Of course, after they read this we might see a re write...


The only LIPO with Dual Shielding..for Your protection!
