    Default The mother load finally hit!

    Ordered these new Turnigy 75C Graphenes back in mid December and they finally were delivered this week. Between the sale price, a 10% discount code, and some rewards points, I got them for 40% off. Should have bought twice as many! Charged them all to storage voltage and now they'll sit until summer, which is depressing. I have a box of 8mm OSE anti-spark connectors to solder on, but those can wait until I have a better idea on my wire length needs. I've had good performance and reliability from the original 65C Graphenes, so hopefully these do even better.

    Nice Ryan, sorry you have to wait awhile. I guess me living in fl has its advantages. So how do these panther graphenes compare to the older turnigy red/gray/black graphenes.

    They're green and have a higher C rating. That's all I know for now.

    They did really well. Only ran them in my HPR this summer, but will be using them in multiple boats next year.

    Would you rate these Panther Graphenes more than the Turnigy nano-techs? I have had the nano techs with dead cells after a handful of runs.... and that is looking after them in regards to storage and run times etc.
    These graphenes are slightly cheaper than the nanotechs so it just makes you wonder.

    These, and the previous 65C Graphene versions, were WAY better than the nano-tech's. Better matched cells, IR readings much lower, more output, less voltage sag. Only negative is their size and weight, but that never bothered me. I base that off nano-techs I've had in the past as well as some pretty in depth comparisons from a guy who rates batteries on RCGroups. If I'm not mistaken, there's a new nano-tech product coming out and I know nothing about that.

    Has hobbyking had the Black Friday sales yet? The sales have just been and gone here at Australian retail outlets but did not see any hobbyking Black Friday sales.

    I don't believe there was a Black Friday sale at HK, i go on there site every day & have not seen one. They just seem to have there ongoing Cyber sale which dosn't seem to have much use full things on offer for me at least.
