New 6s board idea Graphene battery


#1

I have yet to see a graphene battery build and lately they have been getting good reviews so i was wondering if u guys think it would be a good idea to use them.


#2

go for it!


#3

u think the battery is just a special lipo or something that can be copared to a li ion battery pack?


#4

you want to run it with a li-ion?


#5

I was thinking about just this one battery

#6

15c… gonna need higher than that! 20 or 25c atleast.


#7

really i thought multistar was only 15c


#8

My question is how safe it is? So is it lipo or graphene?


#9

graphene and the life cycle is actually over 600


#10

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2592234 Here is a small test. Life. Cycle for 900 is 85% quite nice.


#11

im just gonna test em out and see wht happens


#12

does anyone know how loud a chain drive is?


#13

15C sounds fine, that’s 120A discharge! Also I haven’t read much into but it just looks like Graphene branded lipos use graphite as the carbon cathode, I’m not sure what they normally use.


#14

oh my bad! didn’t realize it was 8000mah…


#16

So, it’s still a Lipo Right?


#17

Looks decent considering $/mah and size and discharge.
I wonder what voltage is max, is it just like lipo?
Also what about fire hazard, do they blow up or smoke?

"Calling these LiPo’s ‘graphene batteries’ is a complete misnomer. They are Lithium Polymer batteries with the graphene used to pass conducted electricity from the cells. We’re still a long way from GRAPHENE batteries. You seem to understand that in the video, but calling them graphene batteries is a misnomer!"
Copied from youtube comment about graphene battery.


#19

They also seem to come with a G10 plate in them too. Starting to gain traction in the FPV Multi rotor crowd.


#20

Its the recharge cycles that are what amaze me and the rate they are being discharged with no harm to the cells


#21

Still lipos, just a marketing gimmick seems like.
