J BLAZE, so your saying your charging these on a lipo setting which is 3.7 volts vrs. life that is only 3.3 volts per cell?
Or is your charger recognizing the cell volts and adjusting?

Just trying to understand if some lipo chargers can charge these life cells.

charging it on Lipo will damage the cells unless it's A123 setting.

We used this charger on ours, it has a life setting. Only $55.00 110 volt, really an awesome charger. I believe my Orion Race spec and my Imax charger also charge life.

thanks,
Dear Patrichio

I am making one that fits the D8 now

It will be 1100mah but it will last for around 1.2hrs of run time .

The answer to the charging tech it has to be a life setting as the life and lipo are not only different in voltage but different in charging patterns

Guys when you order a Hyperion pack do not forget the servo lead.
