Default I got turned onto....

Ok, I have to admit, I'm the victim of "Freebie Love".....

Recently, we had our "Rotor Days over the Bay" event, and someone gave me a battery to try that I had not heard of before.

Dinogy Lipos (check my signature)

I popped one into my DJI Phantom and was very, and I do mean VERY pleased!

First, it fit. next, with my fully loaded Phantom (gimbal, GoPro & FatShark) my flight times on the stock Phantom battery were falling short at about 6 minutes, but with the Dinogy 2500 I got back all my rated time back up and past 10 minutes. After a few cycles, I actually got 12 minutes on one video flight!

So, I know its rare you hear me pumping a company up, but this time I wanted to be sure you guys knew about these batteries and gave them a try. Dinogy is in California, so he ships super speedy, and you get them fast.

Take as look, give them a try, and my bet is you'll thank me for bringing them to your attention. I know I'm glad I for handed one to try... I'm outfitting my DJI EVO S-800 with his super-in 6 cell, 10,000 mAh brick!

http://dinogylipos.com/sport-lipos/152-4000mah-5s-65c


IS THAT SEXY OR WHAT ?!


Being impressed, I gave the company a call, and spoke to Mark. Sure enough, our paths have crossed in the past. The chemestry on these batteries is real solid, they are tolerant, and dont go puffy puffy on high C recharges like my Hyperions do. That means they will continue to fit into tight places!

Electricity... It's not just for light bulbs anymore.

Chellie,
I'm done with Cheapo China batteries... I've been living off of Thunder Power, and Hyperion for a long time now.

Quality pays.

I'll let you know how that brick performs, the DJI EVO is pretty demanding.

I don't know what battery you found Chellie, but the ones I looked up weren't worse than others 'quality' ones I've searched. My big issue is you hear many of these are made at the same factory, then they stick on the label of the whichever company is ordering them. I'll probably order a couple for my FMS P-51 anyway and give them a try. My original batts for it are starting to show signs of age, one with a weak cell. Thanks for the tip, Nitro.

10k mah 5S is an impressive pack... but the $245 is still steep.

I have been doing so well with packs that cost half as much per watt-hr of capacity....

Until he's coming in at a FAR lower weight per watt-hr I think I'll stick to the lower cost packs.
Right now his packs weigh almost exactly the same per watt-hr as Sky LiPo which have been giving outstanding service.

In the electric racing boat world these batteries are pretty much the top packs, lots of Hyperion and TP users changing over.
If they can perform in a boat for a couple racing seasons they are good batteries. We regularly pull well over 200 amps with some setups, not many brands of battery can stand up to that kind of use repeatedly. These do!

Yeah
Let us know how they work out. Also, if they can safely be recharged in 15 minutes without affecting their cycle life.

As for me, they'd cost some $250 in each of my two giant scale models. And, I'd have to add about a pound of lead to replace the over sized, overweight A123 cells they are presently using.

LOL over 300$ + shipping for batteries for a 1/8 scale hydroplane, about 4 minutes runtime!
Planes are cheap in comparison....
You will love the Dinogy packs, think I've only heard of one battery issue with them so far. Mark is also a great guy to deal with, amazing customer service.

wow. I only paid $350 for my car, and so far I've gotten 50k miles out of it.

id just feel really bad putting a model in with a battery that cost almost as much as the car that brought it there do to dumb thumbs... but I guess you gotta pay to play.

hmm. 17.6 amp rated charge rating with a 6 month warranty. if these things really are as good as they claim (95% capacity after 50 cycles), they might be worth a hard second look. I'm cheap, but ill pay good money for good quality.

95% original capacity after 50 cycles. Is this typical of a quality LiPo battery?

to be honest, I can't be 100% sure. I do not always charge my batteries on my charger that shows amounts put back in or have any way to measure what is used. I normally charge on my cheapie eflight bind and fly chargers and then top them off with a balance charge on my imax b6.

I love the charger, but I am toying with.getting a lot more powerful charger and another low power one with 4 outputs.

I have almost always way over bought batteries. my slow stick pulls 18-20 amps and I usually run a 40c 2200mah battery. pulling a whole 200 watts does not really stress the battery.

Just wondering.

My obsolete A123 cells still have 95% of their original capacity, and still turn the same motor at the same RPM on the same prop as when they were new. That's 400 flights ago, and five years ago.

Thanks for the comments guys. I would like to answer any questions you guys might have here.

As far as lipos being made in 3 factories well thats been long gone for some time now. I think there's over 40 last time I looked. As far as the Haiyen packs go there the manufactor of turnigy cells. Not very good quality but when you get a good one you get a good one.

As far as my prices go I think I am very reasonable for having what I consider the best packs on the market. My 3s 2800 sells for $37. Max amps sells there version for $75.

All of the cheaper lipos out there are made with cheaper less expensive materials. That means they have a higher failure rate. My packs are made with the best materials available and are assembled better than most packs out there. My packs hold there voltage better while staying cooler better than any brand I have ever tested. Just so you know I have been racing rc boats for over 20 years and pylon planes for almost 15 years.
I was even sponsored by Thunder power for 5 years. I am a racer and I sell to racers. Thats how I started my company. I care for the customer and try to give the best customer service I know how. If you have a problem or question I am an email or phone call away.

If your someone who likes quality over cheap than l think I have what you want. Please ask me anything you want and I'll try to check in here as often as I can. Thanks for checking my site out too.

thanks for dropping in mark. I love good customer service, good quality, and when a vendor takes a proactive approach. I will be buying a few lipos in the next couple months for some of my winter builds. I think I am going to give you guys a try.

Hi Mark, thanks for dropping in. I was actually looking to buy some 30C 4S 2700 or 3300 sport packs from your site for one of my planes, but they are like 11" long! Are those dimensions correct? My cheap brand 2650's are similar in height and width, but only around 5.5" long.
