General info Edit
The exterior of the PowerChamp GX sports the three-tone black, gold and red colors, with the large golden 'GX' label placed next to the 'PowerChamp' label and the Tamiya label. The limited edition, gold-plated terminal version of the GX, known as the GX-Gold, instead has the artwork of the Dangun Racer Jet-Vulcan from the manga Dangun Wolf by Tetsuhiro Koshita.
As usual for a new PowerChamp battery, it features the increased discharge-rate and endurance compare to the PowerChamp GR. The GX-Gold has the gold-plated terminals that prevents the corrosion of the terminals. Both batteries's performance are similar to that of Fujitsu's Rspec alkaline battery.
As it is a Alkaline battery, it is heavier than NeoChamp battery (which was released in 2011) and is not cost effective due to being a non-rechargeable battery.
