Energizer ACCU AAA cells


I have a pack of eight of these that I use in slow flyers. THey are light and 720mah so they work great.

Does anyone know what kind of amperage I could get out of them?

I'm tempted to put them in the Zagi...

Gerald used them in a Skimmer glider last weekend with a direct drive speed 400 and I think a 6x4.5 prop? He said they were just warm so you might be OK if your zagi is stock.

Actually they are marked as 700mah but I am not so sure they are not the same as Sanyo 720's (marked 'HR' on bottom - any ideas?)

You can get a good 3-4 Amps from them and even push to 5 amps but the voltage takes a nose dive above that.

I use them on my Astro 010 projects (8 and 10 cell packs). They seem to work great and take a lot of abuse.

Direct drive speed 400 on 6.5x4 is waaaay too much for these AAA cells - perhaps they were the AA cells?

Good luck!

Yes, they are the AAA size and say 720mah on them.

I'm not sure about the 'HR' I'll check them tonight and see for sure.

Hmm - I didn't know Energizer started listing them as 720mah. I knwo the Panasonic cells are 720's, but the Energizer Accu cells that I have delt with are marked as 700mah and cannot handle more than 4-5 amps without dropping serious voltage.

I suppose they would run a 400 direct with that prop, but the power would be way down comared to an AA cell or a 600AE.

I'm betting you are actually using Panasonic cells, not that there would be a huge difference.

Good luck and have fun!

Nope, they were the AAA cells, maybe he will see this post and reply.
