Details

What is "Low-Self-Discharge" technology?
There are a number of people who would have you believe that this is "new technology" & somehow better than all that has gone before. Well here are the facts.....

This technology has been around since 2007 - we have been selling them for that long.
The term low self discharge means that the battery will not run down after being charged anything like as fast as a conventional NiMH or NiCd rechargeable battery would. After being charged, these batteries will typically retain 80% of that charge after 6 months, and 70% after 12 months, this makes them ideal for applications where they receive occasional light use, basically after being left for a couple of months you can just pick up where you left off.
Sounds good? Well as in all things that seem great there is always a catch - this is what the other guys selling this type of battery don't tell you - due to a combination of them not understanding the product & not wanting to lose a sale.
There are principally 3 down-sides:

1) The batteries have a lower capacity than standard NiMH types - typically around 10 - 20% lower. If your batteries get used very frequently, these are not the best choice, you will get better perfomence from the standard 2600mAh types such as the ones we sell.
2) The batteries cannot be fast charged in the same way that conventional NiMH types can. We recommend that these packs be charged at no more than 1,000mA
3) The packs cannot provide the same current output as standard types, so this makes them unsuitable for motor applications, or other high current uses.

Hope that this explanation helps, feel free to ask us any questions & we will get back to you as quickly as we can.

I have had one of these packs in my futaba FF8 since 2010 and after 6yrs of use it still gives 1600mAh capacity. Not bad for 6yrs!!. I ordered a Sanyo Enerloop pack because the Vapex LSD packs where not in stock :-( (Posted on 16/06/2016)

Spot on battery cells, hold the charge, Always ready to go. Better to use intelligent charger, As with all these type of cell, Then they will give full performance and last longer, Why pay more for a name made in same factory. (Posted on 11/11/2015)

Good catalogue, Good website, Good range of products. These batteries were supplied with the specific connectors I wanted and are well assembled. Highly recommend this type of battery for low-discharge applications; in my case, to power an FPV project. (Posted on 09/08/2015)

Have changed to these low drain batteries in all my transmitters now. I have found them excellent no more flat batteries at shows having forgotten to charge the battery up the night before after the transmitter has been left for a couple of weeks.
Usual high standard you expect from the Component shop (Posted on 20/04/2015)
