Received a pair of brand new 3300 70C lipos today thanks to Revolectrix. These packs appear to be the latest offering from Revolextrix to complement their current Gopack Silver label 70C range.
These packs were supposed to have arrived last Friday being shipped via FEDEX from Indonesia, however due to leaving for the Wagga Wagga Heliheatwave 2017 on Thursday last week, only took receipt of batteries today.
The batteries were delivered inside of flexible / plastic containers that are lockable via a clip lock mechanisim on both sides. The containers are also fitted with switchable led lights and very nicely plastic moulded with Revolectrix embossed labelling.
My first thoughts were that the battery containers appeared to be well shaped to hold the 3300 70C packs including allowing the packs to fit with the battery leads curled up inside without any pressure. Perfect protection for any long journey. They also appeared to be tall enough to hold 5000 packs also.
Revolectrix appear to go to lengthy efforts to ensure delivery of batteries are unaffected by transportation hazards. I found that the packs were shipped inside the plastic container with very meticulous care and protection. Each pack was bubble wrapped. and installed inside a plastic sleeve, the whole sleeve was again located inside the plastic containers with filler bubble wrap to protect the battery from moving around inside the container. Even the containers were also bubble wrap protected inside the cardboard delivery box.
I was also pleasantly surprised that Revolelectrix have considered the complete user experience by labelling each battery with the users / recipients name and date of order. A nice touch!
From the image above and below, you can see that the battery leads are also provided with protection and the battery utilises standard batter balance connectors.
Each pack is soft cased,and weighed 589grams (without soldered EC5 connectors in place).
The 3300 70C battery when placed side by side with my atom 3300 60C packs (1 year old but not deformation) appeared to be very similar in size / dimensions.
Actual dimensions are 128mm(L) x 47mm(w)x 40mm(h)
Current GOpack 70C Range here, but couldn't see this battery yet.
The batteries are also labelled with bump compatible stickers on each end for those using bump controllers with their Powerlab setups!!
Over the course of the next month I plan on putting these packs through regular cycles of flight, recording ongoing data including IR's, performance, no of cycles and ultimately report back in a non biased approach regarding my actual flight performance experience with these packs.
Overall first impressions are that Revolectrix have done a great job in ensuring delivery, presentation and the user experience meet a very high standard!
Looking forward to flying these new puppies.
Thanks Revolectrix....Impressed so far!!
