Reedy Zappers SG5 HV-LiPo LP shorty batteries feature a new hard case design and state-of-the-art LiPo chemistry with advancements in cell manufacturing and battery construction that result in higher capacity and power output, lower internal resistance, and improved durability.

Zappers SG5 HV-LiPo 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! Even when the typical 8.40-8.44V (4.2-4.22V/cell) charging limit is enforced, Zappers SG5 batteries shine thanks to their inherently flat discharge curve which results in higher voltage deeper into the race.

A high quality, durable hard case helps prevent damage while embedded socket connectors keep power-robbing resistance to a minimum. Male ESC connectors are included!

Reedy strives to improve all aspects of battery performance in the increasingly competitive world of RC car racing.
