It is the very first generation PowerChamp batteries specifically made for Mini 4WD races.
It was superseded by the PowerChamp EX in 1992.
The PowerChamp sports the 2-tone color labeling of gold upper half and the black lower half, with the Tamiya logo on the upper half and the gold-colored 'PowerChamp' letter on the lower half.
The PowerChamp, compare to the regular alkaline batteries at that time, has higher discharge rate. This however, came at a cost of shortened endurance performance, although it still last longer than the Zinc-Carbon batteries.
As it is a Alkaline battery, it is heavier than the Mini 4WD Ni-Cd Battery and is not cost effective due to being a non-rechargeable battery.
