OVONIC 7.4V 5000mAh 50C 2S LiPo Battery Pack
#O-50C-5000-2S1P-HC21-Deans, $24.99

This is the new OVONIC 7.4V 5000mAh 50C 2S LiPo battery pack from Ampow. The battery features a hard case design with a 12-gauge pre-wired Deans (T-style) connector and JST-XH balance charge connector. It is rated with a 50C discharge and 100C max burst discharge rate. The battery is a standard “stick pack” with dimensions of 137mm x 45mm x 24mm and weighs in at 302 grams.

This OVONIC pack is ideal 1/10-scale off-road vehicles which use a full-length battery pack (such as short course trucks, monster trucks, and rock crawlers). 

This battery pack provided ample run-time in our Traxxas 2wd Slash with a modified motor, and remains well balanced and consistent charge after charge.

Pros:

  • Very reasonably priced at only $24.99.

  • Clear shrink-wrapped hard case design.
  • Fits most 1/10-scale short course trucks, monster trucks, and rock crawlers.

Cons:

  • Balance plug has bulky protection clip that can make placement in the car difficult without removing it.

Final Word:

While this is not our first pick for serious competition, this battery pack works great for someone who is looking to go backyard bashing, upgrade from a NiMh battery pack, and/or looking for a budget friendly LiPo battery pack.
