Most are to big to fit a Losi, but Cobra Racing has the best one for a Losi.

One of my distributors will have them available soon. We have been testing them and are working great. Never wanted to run a lipo with a regulator and ruin it if I ran it dead. These should be the only way to go, I've heard they will be about the same price as a Nimh!

If you dont have a LiFe setting can you use Lipo setting on your charger?

yup, depends on the charger. as long as the charger is a life charger,check your manual, my charger does life batteries but life setting was not in the menu, manual said use lipo setting. got my life in last week and charged it up and balanced it on lipo setting. . baddabing she's ready to go. got mine on ebay, rcmall, took about 3 weeks but i could wait cause its christmas vacay time.

Those are good batts and RC TORO has them for 20 but they wont fit the Losi. And you have to have the RC8B box for the hump to fit an RC8. The stick pack fits though. And charging it like Lipo will damage the cells unless it's A123 setting.
