SUPPER POWER PACK FOR 7.2v RC TANKS
Hi guys my first post . I come from an EV back ground build electric cars , bikes etc.
Found these Powertech AA 2500mAh Ni-MH from Jaycar. So made a 9.6v 5000mAh battery packs consisting of 16 AA 2500mAh Ni-MH batteries that fit in the normal Heng Long battery compartment 8) This is more than 3 times the standed battery power , the extra volts helps to. The best part the standed 7.2 volt battery charger will still charge the 9.6 v as they put out about 12.5 v but it dose take longer :-\
In the photo shows 17 but I did use 16 and used this clear plastic blister pack as the basis for the battery pack wired 2 x 8  series then 2 x 9.6v parallel 9.6v to make the 5000mAh battery pack. ;D
  I have not had any problems running at 9.6v so far but it shore makes the tanks get up and go. ;D no problem with sluggish turns etc. Upto one hour running time np.
Also some pics of my tanks :o
What got me interested in tanks !! My freind Jeff has a real CENTURION  TANK like the one in the bottom photo which I help him work on ;)
