i run a 14.8v lipo in my starter box. a lipo is a must in a starter box. it lasts forever and reduces starter box weight. i kept mine simple and just go deans to deans. i have one on my site, its a common sense 14.8v 3850mAh. thats what i have in my starter box. as far as adapters, a few websites may have them. you can sometimes use the same balancing lead just make sure the wires are in right sequence. hope this helps.
