Turnigy Graphene 1500mAh 65C Lipo Battery
The technology allows for a significantly increase in battery life time.
More charge / discharge cycles and also a higher charge rate permitted without influencing performance and life span.
The internal resistance is lower, translating in better performance across discharge and life span.
One might argue why the Graphene Lithium Polymer batteries are bigger in size then the same specification A-Spec lipo batteries.
The A-Spec are already in at the high end of Lipo performance when it comes to RC.
Adding the Graphene layer allows to further increase the amount of chemicals inside the battery without exceeding the safe operational limits.
It is about 100 times stronger than the strongest steel with a hypothetical thickness of 0.335nm which is equal to the thickness of the graphene sheet.
It conducts heat and electricity efficiently.
Why the price?
The Cycle life alone compensates on the costs.
We all know that when using the Lipos while monitoring the cell voltage there is a "recovery" voltage happening when the power is cut.
Different specification batteries have different drops corresponding to different amounts of power drawn.
The graphene allows for this power to be better managed and the battery is capable of maintaining a better and more efficient discharge curve.
Although higher charge rates are possible the maximum recommended is 2 times the capacity of the battery. The longest life time and best performance will be achieved with a 1C.
Higher charge rates than 2C are to be performed under observation and at the consumers own risk.
We have used and tested these graphene batteries at 2C charge rates and after 20 cycles the battery and cells still maintain the new specifications.

TURNIGY, the name synonymous with performance, reliability and innovation is excited to release a powerful new battery chemistry in the Turnigy Graphene!
What does this really mean for you? Well not only do Graphene batteries go harder for longer but they're unlike anything you have seen or used before.
Turnigy Graphene packs utilize carbon in the battery structure to form a single layer of graphene just 0.335nm thick, making that type of battery substrate the thinnest known to mankind.
The graphene particles form a highly dense compound allowing electrons to flow with less resistance compared to traditional Lipoly battery technologies.
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.

Advantages over traditional Lipo batteries.
• Power density: 0.15-0.17kw/kg (5Ah-16Ah)
• Power density: 0.13-0.15kw/kg (1Ah-4.9Ah).
• Stable High pack voltage through duration of use.
• High discharge rate, giving more power under load.
• Internal impedance can reach as low as 1.2mO compared to that of 3mO of a standard Lipoly.
• Greater thermal control, packs stay much cooler under extreme conditions
• Higher capacity during heavy discharge.
• Maintains higher pack capacity even after hundreds of cycles
• Fast charge capable, up to 15C on some batteries.
• Longer Cycle Life (reportedly in excess of 900 during testing).
