I saw another vendor somewhere that's doing these. Sound's promising but how do you charge them? I am not aware of any LiPo chargers that allow one to change the output voltage and these would need that or a all together new charger.

See if your charger has a "LiFE" or "LiFEPo" setting. All of my LiPo-capable chargers are also LiFE-capable.

My LiPo charger is a Duratrax ICE, I don't think it's LiFe ready but maybe if this battery type gains popularity a firmware update with LiFe could be in the future.

Check lithium ion I belive their settings are 3.1-3.2 volts per cell
Also known as a123 cells-li-ion. Which also normally have a lot higher charge rate 2-5c

most chargers of today like will charge the lifep04 example the diamond back ,the bmax ,ice,much more,patrick and others in the software just look find the life is just after li po or lithium ion on the lcd screen most software on chargers follow the same sequence.

But in saying all this we will have a small charger that cusomers can buy with the charger for about $20 US this way you dont have to upgrade your charger at all.

dimentions are as follows

stick pack 84mm L x 24mm W x 15mm H weight 74 grams
hump pack 51mm L x 31mm W x 24mm H weight 79 grams

No, 1400mah is plenty of power. There's no chance of dumping a 1400mah pack in an hour of running. The advantage of this over nimh is that the voltage should stay more consistent.

so if you get 2 a123 cells (which are 2300mah) that should be all you would need for more than an hour for a 1/10?

why are nihms up to 5000 then?

Well, since this is posted in the NITRO section, and this thread is about RECEIVER packs, the hour of running is in reference to how long these new receiver packs will power the receiver and servos. Not about running a 1/10th electric car for an hour on 1400 mAh.
