There is a soft pad inside the box to protect the battery from shocks. A lot of people throw away these little foam pads. I highly recommend you guys. You can reuse these as fillers in your car. Just to protect the battery from hard shocks, especially soft case lipo batteries. So actually these things are very useful.

The balanced port comes with a plastic case attached, which is great. You can grab it to pull in and out, so you won’t have a problem pulling the balance end out, very convenient. Secure it to the Scx10’s battery tray with a velcro pocket, very sturdy and compact.

Performance Testing

The first measured voltage data was when I got this pack of batteries.

Cell All 1 2 3
Storage voltage 11.4v 3.81v 3.79v 3.82v
Full voltage 12.6v 4.19v 4.19v 4.17v
Low voltage 10.9v 3.66v 3.64v 3.62v

While charging, the temperature of the battery did not change in any way.
The Scx10 ran in the yard for nearly  50 minutes  when fully charged.  The total voltage is 10.9v, and the maximum voltage gap is 0.04v, which is very good. This doesn’t seem to drain the battery before I get tired. Impressive. So I believe he can run for more than 1 hour without a problem.
The 50c discharge rate provides an amazing punch. Even on wet ground, the Scx10 climbs smoothly over large rocks and steep slopes with little effort.  I’m very pleased with its performance, and for the price, it can’t be beaten.

One pack for 1/10 RC car, like Scx10 ii and iii.
Two packs for 1/8 RC car, like Traxxas E-Maxx, Slash.

The 5000mah power is very sufficient, you can get more RC car fun. The sturdy hard case is more durable and prevents abuse. It’s just that hard-shell batteries are only suitable for remote control cars, not for planes.

In addition to the above two packs of batteries, Ovonic also has many batteries suitable for Scx10, including 3000mah, 4500mah, and 5200mah. They have a good reputation, so you don’t have to worry about quality and safety. Ovonic batteries are reasonably priced compared to other batteries, don’t miss them.
