Really Disappointed with Revolectrix


I would have well over a dozen Revolectrix batteries, some 4s but mainly 6s.

All charged around 1c on a top of the line iCharger. All less than 20 flights or there abouts. All never used past 3.8 per cell in fact usually less.

Now a number of them have dead cells, with the IR (internal resistance) for say 5 of the cells at around 10 to 13 and then one cell at around 60 to 70 or higher, so while the other cells are fine the one cell lets the whole battery down. I recently took off with one of my 500 Heli's and 30 seconds into the flight the 6s Revo with 1 bad cell hit LVC level and the esc shut down, luckily I was able to auto it in.

I would say about a third of my Revolectric batteries are like this, which means they are unusable, and so after spending well over a US$1,000 on them I have purchased my last Revolectrix battery. Super disappointed would be an understatement.

I hope you guys have better luck.

Cheers,
Phil

i am using revos for the first time,
40c 3300mah and aside from them not being actually 3300mah, the voltage sag is crazy, i have my alarm at 3.65v/c landed my heli and it took a while to recover, after a few moments i brought them in and resting voltage was at 3.84v just around 50% and im getting low voltage alarms..

when my tgy graphenes hit 3.65 alarm, they are at 3.74v resting.
turnigy graphenes ftw!

never buying these again

Did you give them a few cycles or was this charge #1? All lipos need a few cycles of charge/discharge before they "develop" fully.
