HYPERION G6 High Voltage Lithium Polymer Batteries


NEWS! Firmware update for HvLi Charge Mode now available for select Hyperion EOS Chargers. See the EOS Datasheet for details.

  The new Hyperion G6 High Voltage Lithium packs give you more power and flight time, for less money. The 2400mAh 80Cmax pack pictured at right, for example, is the same size and weight as the old 3.7V Lipo 2200 but provides about 10% more watt hours of energy.

That extra 200mAh of capacity means more flight time for you, while advanced automation at our factory means lower prices than ever before. You really can have you cake, and eat it too, with Hyperion G6 HvLi packs...
  • Hyperion G6 - the only high-rate HvLi pack made using hybrid rolled & stacked cell construction - outperform competing HvLi packs in cycle lifespan.

  • G6 performance is consistent over many cycles, and provide high voltage levels under load.  That means more power delivered per capacity of the pack.

  • ISO quality control at all production steps is the Hyperion way. You will never have to buy three Hyperion G6 packs to get two "good ones"....

  • The robust design of the packs, including internal anti-abrasion plastics, helps protect them from damage.

  • Super-fast (<15 minutes) 6C max charge with no negative impact on lifespan or reliability.

  • All Hyperion G6 Packs feature JST-XH Balance connectors, which have become the industry standard

  • All packs up to 2800mAh include pre-soldered XT60 main connectors (as pictured above)

  • The large packs which are "split" to meet IATA shippng regulations now use a 4mm bullet series connector set on short wires and a single balance plug, so they can be charged on a single charge port (see pic below). Just remove the shrink tube from the series wires, connect, and you're ready to charge.

  • G6 HV packs can be charged to standard lipo teminal voltage of 4.2V per cell and in that case deliver about the same capacity as the standard lipo pack of same weight and C-rate (so the G6 2400 will deliver about 2200mAh when charged to 4.2V/cell), or charged to a maximum of 4.35V per cell for full rated capacity, about 10% additional capacity and run time compared to standard LiPo packs.

  • Don't forget, if your machine calls for a 2200mAh pack, get the G6 2400 for the right size and weight; if 1600mAh is the model's battery spec, use G6 1800, etc...


The G6 HvLi LiPo come in three C-Rate versions, 60Cmax, 80Cmax, and 99Cmax. Continous C-Rate for 100%+ delivered capacity is 1/2 C-Max rate. The 60Cmax series are appropriate for most models and deliver high capacity and power per gram at lowest cost. The 80Cmax series is for applications that need higher voltage under load, such as 3D airplanes, helicopters, and FPV quad racers. The 99Cmax packs provide extreme voltage-holding capability for applications like EDF jets or other very fast models, or extreme 3D helicopters. In testing competing bands, we often find their continuous C-ratings badly inflated. For example, in testing our Cmax99 (50C continuous rating), it well outperformed a popular other-brand pack which was rated at 65C.


The G6 HvLi LiPo are awesome for FPV Quad Racing, as the extra capacity allows you to use a lighter pack. The 1200 and 1400 80Cmax have short 60mm wires and XT60 connector, to further reduce weight , inprove perfomaance, and fit without excess wire hanging out. We recommend these packs depending on size of the racer and motors employed:

80Cmax 3S and 4S 1200mAh, 1400mAh, 1800mAh for racing
60Cmax 3S 2200mAh will be excellent for FPV fun running
(80Cmax 1200 and 1400 arriving June 15 2015)

Break-In Procedure - Hyperion packs are robust and do not need a complicated break-in procedure.  Do note the other care suggestions below.  These apply pretty generally to any HvLi or standard LiPo pack...

Discharge - Analysis of damaged packs returned to us by users shows that nearly 70% have suffered from "capacity over-discharge" conditions.  This simply means that the pack has been run too long, allowing resting voltage to fall too low.  Such damage is visible upon cell inspection at the factory.  Every type of battery has a minimum recommended discharge level.  For example, even deep-cycle lead-acid batteries should not be regularly discharged down to less than 30%~40% of capacity.  In the case of lithium polymer, to be safe always leave 20% of rated capacity in the pack at the end of a flight, with 10% as an absolute minimum.

To avoid capacity over-discharge, we recommend the setting of an appropriate cut-off voltage (LVC) and the use of a transmitter flight timer.  For LVC, the appropriate voltage cut-off depends in large on how high the max and average discharge rates are.  Having  the Hyperion Emeter II Remote Data Logger (RDU) makes this even easier, as you can more accurately log the exact capacity mAh Out used each flight and make quick adjustments to your flight timer...

Charge - All Hyperion packs can be charged at 6C rates, with no reduction in cycle life or performance.  However, given the negligible difference in charge time for 6C rate vs. 5C, we believe 5C to be the ideal max charge rate for any high-performance Lipo pack.  We strongly recommend the use of quality-brand charger, such as the Hyperion EOS lineup.  Hyperion holds that 4.35V/cell (+/- 0.05V) is the proper MAXIMUM terminal voltage for Hyperion G6 packs.  Use of charge voltages higher than this (for racing, etc) is not covered under warranty, and is dangerous.

PLEASE be sure that charging is always done such that in case of fire, no damage nor injury can occur.  Keep LiPo well separated (minimum 2M or 7') from flammables, and always use a brick enclosure or "LiPo sack" to insure that any possible fire can be contained.  We strongly discourage charging within or near living spaces, or inside automobiles. LiPo charging should be monitored closely at all times.

Temperature - For best performance and cycle life, your Hyperion battery packs should have a resting temperature no lower than 10 °C (50 °F) at the beginning of a Flight, or beginning of Charging.  (this is true for any LiPo, not just G6). 

Physical - Never cause indentations to the covering of the pack, or cells underneath.  Do not use a ball-point pen to write on the pack, for example. Use a felt-tip pen with light pressure instead.  When installing packs in the model, insure that they have the best protection possible from impact and pressure damage.  Use foam casing if possible. Do not over-tighten hold down straps. Straps should be cloth (velcro) as opposed to hard plastic, such as zip ties.  External damage to any Lipo pack can cause salts formations which reduce performance, and in more severe cases can cause fires during charging.  Impact Damaged packs should be fully discharged, and disposed of immediately.

Storage - Lipo should not be stored fully charged, or with less than 50% of capacity remaining.  We strongly recommend Hyperion EOS chargers, as they have automatic STORE functions to insure that the packs are in the range of about 60%~70% capacity (3.78V~3.92V resting voltage per cell).  After returning home for the day, simply use STORE MODE to achieve this automatically. Batteries are best stored in a cool, dry environment (2~20 °C or 37~68 °F).

Hyperion G3 LiPo Packs are guaranteed as follows:
• Defects in materials and workmanship (solder joints, etc) for one year from date of purchase.

Hyperion G3 Packs are NOT guaranteed for the following:
• Physical Damage to the pack occurring after purchase (impact, water/moisture/salt, etc)
• Over-voltage charging, or other error by charger or user setting of charger.
• Use outside of specifications
• Damage due to improper storage (very hot locations, fully charged storage, etc)
• Short circuit
• Improper balance connections to charger
• Returns without copy of Original Receipt
• Returns without accompanying note stating the reason for return.

Note that a pack in which ALL cells have "ballooned" will not qualify for free warranty replacement.  Given a cell failure rate of less than 1/1000, it is statistically impossible that all cells in a pack will balloon together while being properly used and maintained. In virtually all such cases, the problem can be identified over-capacity discharge, radical over-current discharge, improper storage, or charge voltage in excess of 4.355V/cell.   If you have experienced this problem, you will need to troubleshoot your charger and power system, and consider how you are storing you batteries, to determine the cause, so it does not happen again.
