Traxxas 11.1v 4000mah LiPo Battery 25C
Traxxas Certified LiPo batteries are engineered to give you the punch and on-demand power to reach the top speeds your Traxxas model is built to achieve.
Traxxas Power Cell LiPo packs use a unique construction method that results in a firm, rugged, and compact pack that does not require a hard case. This allows Power Cell LiPos to offer greater capacity in a given size, and also allows the user to easily monitor the condition of their battery. Unlike a hard-cased pack, if a Power Cell LiPo "puffs" or softens due to damage or abuse, the user can easily see and feel the change in the pack. Plus, there are no wire harness connectors that can loosen and fail over time.
Oversized Discharge Tabs
Power Cell LiPos are constructed of premium cells with extra-wide discharge tabs. The discharge tabs are the actual contact points between the cells, so maximizing their surface area is critical to maximize pack performance. Power Cell LiPos' extra-wide tabs ensure minimum resistance so more power and capacity is delivered on every run.
Hard-Wired for Maximum Durability and Performance
Power Cell LiPo packs feature High Current Connectors with 12-gauge Maxx Cable wire, soldered directly to the LiPo cells. Bullet connectors found on other packs introduce additional connections, increase resistance, and allow accidental reversed-polarity connections. This type of rugged connection minimizes resistance to make sure all the power from your battery is used for greater speed and longer runtimes.
Every component of a battery pack contributes to its performance—and that includes the wires. Traxxas Maxx® Cable's 12awg multi-strand wire offers extremely low resistance so power is not wasted as heat, and the fine strands allow excellent flexibility for easy installation and reduced stress on the pack's solder joints. Soft, silicone insulation protects against shorting without compromising flexibility. Maxx Cable is simply the finest and most efficient wire available, and the only wire good enough for Traxxas Power Cell battery packs.
Center Wire Exit
Traxxas LiPo packs have a center wire exit to properly fit Traxxas models with wire reliefs in the chassis. You get perfect battery fit without crushed wires or cut insulation—that means longer life for your LiPo battery.
Revolutionary concepts come in all shapes and sizes, and the Traxxas High-Current Connector defines the new standard for efficiency, ease of use, and high-current handling.
With today's brushless motors and high-density, high-discharge battery packs, using a wimpy connector is like attaching a garden hose to a fire hydrant. The pressure is there but the flow is strangled with resistance. Traditional connectors are simply not up to the task.
The Traxxas High-Current connector flows current like a firehose with virtually zero voltage loss due to power-robbing resistance. The patent-pending Traxxas connector is a better-engineered solution for real-world use. Large, textured surfaces on the plug bodies are easy for fingers to grip and the clever reverse-polarity protection makes Traxxas connectors virtually impossible to plug in backwards. Shrouded wire connections eliminate the extra steps to install heat shrink tubing. Beefy, gold-plated copper terminals with large, spring-loaded contact areas ensure a perfect connection every time. Even after thousands of uses, Traxxas connectors maintain their precision feel and incredibly low resistance.
Standard JST/XH Balance Plug
Every Power Cell LiPo includes an industry-standard JST/XH plug to interface with the Traxxas EZ-Peak Plus charger and most other LiPo chargers. "Balance charging" allows each cell in the battery pack to be charged and discharged independently, assuring the cells are equally charged (balanced) for maximum performance and run time. For maximum performance, only use a LiPo balance charger with your Traxxas Power Cell LiPo batteries.
