Tests and reviews of different batteries to help you find the Right One…
The 1.2V AAA 900 mAh Turnigy LSD NiMH batteries are Low Self Discharge NiMHs as the name suggests, meaning they do loose less of their useable capacity over time compared to traditional NiMH batteries. Turnigy is a brand of one of the largest online RC model stores, namely Hobby King, so these batteries are often used for radio controlled models – for powering transmitters, receivers and even smaller scale models. The price of the Turnigy LSD NiMH batteries is more attractive compared to other similar products, but what about their performance, we are going to find out exactly that now.
We have started the test of the 1.2V AAA 900 mAh Turnigy LSD NiMH batteries as we normally do with a low constant current discharge rate of 0.1A and getting 1068 mAh as a useable capacity is really a good result with significantly higher capacity than what the batteries are rated. In fact the performance of the 900 mAh Turnigy LSD is very close to the one provided by the 950 mAh Powerex Imedion LSD NiMH batteries that we’ve tested recently that also performed great. Increasing the load we test at and we still got great performance out of the Turnigy batteries, so they are great and affordable solution and the only problem is that you can only order these online from some of Hobby King’s warehouses in different countries.
The performance of the 1.2V AAA 900 mAh Turnigy LSD NiMH batteries in our tests:
– 1068 mAh at 0.1A load
– 988 mAh at 0.2A load
– 909 mAh at 0.5A load
