Graphene Batteries Are Here: Longer life, Cooler Running & Faster Charge

Graphene Battery HobyKing

HobbyKing have just release a new graphene battery by Turnigy. For a long time now, graphene has been the next big thing in batteries. Why? Because the carbon fibre type fibre can form a single layer of just 0.335nm (microns). This makes the battery sub-strate the thinnest ever seen in batteries, which in turn allows it to store more charge.

The graphene particles form a highly dense compound allowing electrons to flow with less resistance compared to traditional Lipoly batteries.

The result is a battery capable of maintaining greater power output whilst remaining much cooler under load. Since heat and resistance are the natural enemy of batteries Graphene chemistry has significantly reduced these problems and the result is an incredible boost in cycle life.
Turnigy Graphene batteries are the new standard for serious hobbyists who require POWER ON DEMAND.

The 1300mAh 4S battery that HobbyKing are supplying are perfect for mini racing multicopters.

Mini quads are the new black, mainly because they can be fast, nimble, but above, they’re cheap. And being cheap it means you can crash them and repair them cost effectively. Probably can’t say the same for a DJI Phantom!

Hobbyking came out with their own 250 mini quad recently and it certainly ticks all the boxes. These kits come with everything except the flight controller board, they recommend a KK board, radio control and FPV gear.

These little quads are great for people who want to learn to fly FPV and don’t want to worry about crashing an expensive quad. At around the $120 for the frame, motors ESC’s, battery and props, if you have a radio sitting around, you’ll have yourself an FPV setup for under $300 once you buy an FPV camera and receiver.
