Yeah, it's a sealed gel cell, about the size of half a loaf of bread. Best part is it's super heavy duty so a charge will last more than a racing weekend,and you just use a simple alligator clip style wall charger, hook it up plug it in and forget about it. one night of solid charging before a night before a race day wll guarantee a headache free one.

Only downside, like I said; It's heavy as hell.

Thats why lipos are so good, they are super light, and last 3 race weekends with plenty of juice left over.
