Wayne walker uses the battery's along with many others and he is current Australian and New zealand champ as well as ex femca champion .

Durabilty is like any other battery if you physically damage the external area of the battery you destroy the cells like any other battery .They are safe safer than lipo as they don't explode .

If you dont use lifep04 setting when charging and use lipo you will also damage the battery because they are differnt charge voltages and charging patterns .If you charge in lipo setting kiss your battery goodbye .

Run times depend on the manufacturing of the discharge grid and the servos your using .We get about 1.8hours of run time with ace servos which are known to be energy hungry.

like i said in my previous post we manufacture lipo and life for some of the worlds biggest brands and if we could get the capacity that others a claming in such a small physical size we would as we know it cannot be done .Our battery's are consistant with capacity and voltage and last.

The only time we have had leaking cells and bloating was when the user physically had external damage of the cell and then charged the battery while the damage was present .

i hope this info helps .

The connector for the balancer is Align .you can get your own choice of connector but you must buy in bulk .The best way is use your balancer boards as alot of charger come with 3 different types.

Thanks for that. I think that if need be I can make up an adapter or do somthing to make that work.

I'm currently using a Hyperion EOS0610i - This does not show LiFe when programing it but it will do A123's.

My question is this:
On the front sheet and in the manual it groups the LiFePO4 and A123 together as they are both 3.3v per cell. Will charging the LiFePO4 on the A123 setting cause any damage to the battery?

then yes its ok A123 as long as the voltage is 3.3v the charge pattern will be the same .
