StF8 done and gone. What a successful comeback of a legendary (crappy) OP. Thanks to everyone that came and helped make this one of the best.

Post So I'm going LiPO.
As of recently, I've been thinking about making the switch from the nickel-based battery packs over to a lithium option. They're more compact and lightweight, can deliver a higher output despite their size, and have been made a lot more stable than when they were first introduced to the sport- at least, that's the impression I'm getting.

The only thing is, beyond the things that "everyone knows," I know absolutely nothing about LiPO batteries. What experience does everyone here have with them? Any heads-ups I should know about, going in? What brand do you recommend as far as cost, performance, or the balance between the two goes? Basically, explain like I'm five :roll:

Everyone will tell you to buy them from hobby king where they are dirt cheap in lots of configurations. I've been lucky where I don't take care of my batteries like I should and they're still running good for me. Just make sure your wiring is up to it, since I fried one wiring harness already but it was a stock jg.

I'd definitely love to buy from a source I know personally! What voltage and mAh configurations do you have?

I use only 7.4 maximum 25C discharge. It's almost equivalent to a 9.6 but better trigger response and all around performance. I have quite the selection to choose from. I've got a few that are 2200mah and then a few monster 6000mah that will seriously last you forever lol

I really like my 3 panel, 11.1v 25c's but I fried a VFC 417 using one without a MOSFET. Everything else of mine has been a trooper and took it like a champ.

That battery also cost me a whole $14, so there's that.

That 6000mAh sounds like it may be exactly what I need then, but what are its dimensions? I'm working with a relatively tight space, unless I make some modifications to my AEG. Hmm...

I use battery bags.

Agreed with all above posts.

And I'll add you may need to downsize mah to get a good fit BUT all hop is not lost. The basic formula for lipo is 1.5 shots per mah so even if we go conservative and say 1 per, a 2000 mah will launch 2000 rounds. At a bing game that may not be enough but at a good milsim that's the whole weekend. And if you are worried, grab 2 and roll with one in a pouch. I use a 2000 and a 1400 that fit in my m4 buffer tube ;)

Also, for charging LiPOs, make sure you get a good charger with a LiPO balancer (most that charge LiPOs these days all come with the balancer), and a LiPO charging bag. -just- in case it decides to catch fire, it'll just melt carpet, instead of burn down the house.
