Pulse Batteries – Can You Feel the Power?
Pulse Ultra batteries bring a new level of power to the RC scene, based upon cutting edge lithium polymer technology, and taking advantage of all the technological gains within this amazing industry. Pulse is about power & performance at a cost that can be afforded. No longer does premium power come at a premium price – Pulse delivers it all in one pulse quickening punch.
Delivering intense power for your RC applications, Pulse batteries deliver everything you could imagine at a price never seen. Adding to the addictive power of Pulse Ultra batteries is the 5C charge rate, allowing you to recharge in rapid succession, leaving previous 1C LiPo batteries back at the charger as you rip through the skies above.
Ranging from 35C, 45C, and mind blowing 65C discharge rates, Pulse has you covered in every way possible, delivering mind numbing power levels that will take your flight to an entirely new level of extreme. If you’re looking for power, you just found it. Pulse delivers intense power for intense pilots, and when it comes to value, Pulse simply can’t be beat.

12S 44.4V Wiring:
Use a bullet style connector (male and female) to join the two (2) yellow wires – one male, and one female. This connector should be 5mm or larger, which allows the pack to be broken into two 6S packs for charging.
For the positive / negative (red & black) wires, these will solder to a standard connector of your choice, such as an EC5 connector. Once soldering is complete, the (2) yellow wires can be joined together, which will tie both packs into (1) 12S 44.4 battery, outputting 12S 44.4V power via the connector attached to the positive / negative (red & black) wires. This setup negates the need for a series connector, simplifying the wiring setup. You will need to make a custom charge lead for each 6S pack to allow each 6S battery to be charged independently.
Be extremely careful with polarity! Polarity reversals can cause serious damage to the battery, and can inflict serious harm – any such polarity reversals are NOT covered under warranty, and all such battery setups are the sole responsibility for the end user.
Alternative Wiring – (2) 6S 22.2V Setup:
Solder connectors of your choice (such as EC5’s) to (1) yellow wire, and (1) black wire, and solder another connector to the yellow & red wire. Be extremely careful with polarity! With this option, you will need to use a series connector to link both battery packs into a 12S 44.4V battery setup. However, charging is simplified, as each 6S pack is easily charged using standard charge leads and balance tabs.
- Pulse batteries do not come with power leads, and will require the end user to solder their own style of battery connector for the battery to be properly used. Pulse batteries come with bare leads covered with heat shrink protection, and are ready for the connector of choice to be soldered to the positive/negative leads.
Pulse Batteries feature a warranty against any defective batteries we manufacture, and warranty all manufacturer related defects or flaws. Pulse insures that all packs are properly balanced, but please be sure to check your Pulse battery upon arrival for any faults, such as low voltage, cell imbalances, solder joints, and any other such defect. If any such flaws arise, Pulse will be sure to cover all claims within a 90 day period; all claims after the 90 day period of purchase will not be subject to warranty, so please be sure to carefully inspect your new Pulse battery upon arrival.
In terms of warranty, if any warranty related issues arise, or product flaws are seen, please contact the distributor you purchased your Pulse battery from, as the distributor will handle warranty related matters.
Pulse Batteries – Your Questions End Here.
Have a question regarding Pulse batteries? We have assembled a spread of many questions that are asked about Lithium Polymer batteries, along with Pulse batteries as well. Of course, if you don’t find your answer here, feel free to drop us a line, as we are always happy to help.
Q: What is a “C” rating, and what does it mean to me?
A: “C” ratings are categorized in (2) areas – discharge rate, and charge rate. Pulse Batteries are rated at 35C, 45C, and 65C in discharge rates – this is based upon how much amperage can be delivered, or in simpler terms, how much power your battery has to give. The higher the “C” rating, the more power the battery can give out.
As for the charge rate, Pulse batteries are rated at 5C, which means they can be charged 5 times faster than a conventional 1C Lithium Polymer battery. In short, Pulse batteries can be charged at very high rates of power for rapid charge times, eliminating the wait time of conventional batteries that are limited to 1C.
Q: What is mah, or capacity, in terms of Pulse batteries?
A: “Mah” short for milliamp hours, is a reading of capacity, or how much energy the battery is able to store. Mah, or Capacity, directly relates to flight time, and indirectly relates to power output, as higher capacity batteries also have greater amperage to deliver, when asked to do so.
Q: How long does it take a Pulse battery to charge?
A: Considering Pulse batteries are rated at a 5C charge rate, if your charger can deliver the necessary amperage to charge at 5C, charge times can be as low as 15 minutes, depending upon the charger being used.
Q: How can I determine how many amps my Pulse battery can be charged at?
A: To determine how many amps you can safely charge a Pulse battery, a little math is in order. We will use a simple formula to determine charge rates – divide the “mah” of the battery by 1,000 (let’s say a 2200mah battery), which comes to 2200 / 1,000 = 2.2. Now, multiply it against the “charge” rating of the battery, which in this case is 5C – 2.2 x 5 = 11. So, if we have a 2200mah 5C battery (2200 divided by 1,000 = 2.2), we have 2.2 as our base number, which we then multiply against the charge rating of “5C” which gives us a number of 11 – (2.2 x 5 = 11). What this means is that at a 5C rating, a 2200mah Pulse battery is capable of being charged at 11.0A amps of power.
