Reedy Zappers DR 8250mAh batteries have arrived and are ready to ship! Designed specifically for the demands of drag racing, the Zappers 8250mAh battery features high capacity and C ratings to minimize voltage drop at launch while their inherently heavier weight aids in achieving the ideal front/rear weight distribution.

Performance is not restricted by typical plugs and skimpy wires thanks to a heavy-duty QS8 plug with beefy 8-gauge wires in a 2S-5P configuration. Like all Zappers batteries, the 8250mAh variant is constructed using cells featuring the latest advancements in LiPo chemistry and construction techniques to maximize power output without sacrificing durability. Reedy's engineering team strives to improve all aspects of battery performance in the increasingly popular and competitive world of RC drag racing.

Zappers DR batteries feature a 3.8V/cell nominal voltage, which means that the battery can be safely charged to 4.35V/cell. It is not a secret that more voltage equals more power, so there is no easier way to increase power and top speed than a higher charge voltage! But even when the typical 8.44V (4.22V/cell) charging limit is enforced, Zappers DR shine thanks to their inherently flat discharge curve, which results in higher voltage when multiple passes are required between charges.

LiPo battery technology continues to evolve and Reedy is committed to bringing improved performance to the masses.
