Turnigy Vs. NanoTech Battery Test

I had noticed the NanoTechs were doing very poorly compared to the normal Turnigys. They would get hot and puffy after use that they would be expected to han…

  1. i have nano tech 45-90c 3.3 and have never seen them puff. they have gotten me flight times in excess of 13 minutes on a quad that had a total flying weight of about 1.4kg. tbh the nano tech outperforms my friends regular 4s 4k mah batteries by a long shot.

  2. Yes! Recently my new nano techs are dying! My old nano techs are still working really well. Makes me wonder why i buy them at a higher price. Will be switching over to the normal ones now. Thank you for your tests!

  3. thanks for this vid! I -was- considering buying the nanos, but I think I’ll stick to the much cheaper zippy compact 3S5000 that I have been using.

  4. 3 out of three nanotech batteries (3s) puffed by themselves. max draw was 20c on any of them but they puff after a few months of sitting fully charged. I leave my batteries charged full time because when I get a nice day I don’t want to charge 50,000mah worth of batteries (my standard turnigy batteries stay charged full time as well). I only discharge to 3.5v/cell (low voltage alarm kicks on) but they have been garbage. Buy them as high current, disposable batteries because they don’t last.

  5. Normal Turnigys last a LOT longer. Nano’s will out perform any battery in the beginning of its life, but they soon loose performance too fast.

  6. I agree with you on this, I’m also not happy with the nanotech’s. As you say the do puff rather quickly and the drop in performance also happens rather quickly. I have my older Turnigy’s that have been through many, many more charging cycles and are in perfect shape and still give excellent performance. My Zippy 2700’s I like much better than the nano’s and are cheaper…I’m with you, no more nano’s for me.

  7. Might want to try a new nano tech agenst a new turnigy with the same c rating (rate of capable discharge) to rule out any thing especily if one is failing. Ps rc groups saz a lot about nano techs failing or going bad. Even just one cell go’s bad.

  8. An important things are: how much time did them both work at ~15С load and how much energy did they both deliver. So it actualy gets to two numbers per pack. Can You please measure the time (seconds) and capacity (mAh). Four numbers tell more than hundred words. I guess You have original videos, don’t even need to remeasure. BTW, nice switch. 38sp?

  9. It is obvious that a 25C pack would be outperformed by a 40C one. But three times difference in capacity indicates one of them is dead. Your wattmeter indicates, that You got around 243 mAh from a 3000 mAh nanotech. Even Your graphs indicate that there is a difference in initial voltage. There are lots of questions: Are both batteries fully charged before the test? Are both of the batteries in balance? How many cycles did both have before test?

  10. Great video… good Info! However, how old are the Nano Techs, you indicated that you had been using the nano-techs first…. the Nano techs look a bit puffed where the turnigys are new… any new pack will often out perform an old one… you need to get 2 new packs… one TURNIGY and one NANOTECH…. the same cell count, “C” rating and capacity to perform the test…

  11. i think the nanotech lipo you have is only 25c – 50c, the non nano tech is 40 – 50c, the discharge rate differs with c rating, you should have compared the nanotech with a 25c non nanotech.. or used a 45-90c nanotech, its definitly 45c not 25c, the range x-max c is max capability! you just compared a 25c nanotech with a 40c regular lipo!
