Based on the Eneloop Lite battery from Sanyo (and later Panasonic), it is currently the only official-race-approved nickel-metal hydride battery.

Tamiya also released the NeoChamp Battery with AC Quick Charger set alongside the battery set. On March 30, 2013, Tamiya released the NeoChamp Batteries and AC Quick Charger PRO set as the limited edition item which can charges 4 batteries at once. On December 19, 2015, Tamiya released the updated version of the AC Quick Charger sets.

General info

The external of the battery was mostly in black with NeoChamp and Tamiya labels on it.

The performance, along with its Eneloop Lite counterpart, is better than Tamiya's nickel-cadmium batteries: even if mAh is similar to N-3U Ni-Cd 1000, their weight is less than Ni-Cd (19gr instead of 23gr for an element) and their electrical resistance is lower than a Ni-Cd. NeoChamp are also more enviromental-friendly than nickel-cadmium batteries. Due to these, the Neo-Champ battery was quickly adopted as one of the top battery choice for Mini 4WD racing.

The Neo-Champ battery is also the low-self-discharge battery, meaning it has mininal self-discharge compare to Tamiya nickel-cadmium batteries. While it has the 'memory effect' problem, it is often temporary and is reversible through charge cycling.

AC Quick Chargers

The AC Quick Chargers were only available with the bundles with the NeoChamp batteries.

The chargers are fast, requires only 115 minutes for fully charged the 2 of NeoChamp batteries for the regular AC Quick Charger, while the PRO chargers can charges 2 batteries for only 50 minutes.

Although the chargers were supplies by FDK, they don't have the refresh functionity the other FDK-sourced chargers has. The AC Quick Charger II and AC Quick Charger PRO II, due to their OEM design, were allows to charge the AAA batteries.
