I already emailed Orion and they told me they are working on a saddlepack pack lipo but it won't be out for a few months. I'm guessing Christmas time....

Have someone like tnt-fx.com make you a battery wrap for them.

OR>>>>>>

Someone on here has some pics from where they took the shrink wrap off and rubbed it out with (I think) finger nail polish remover or acetone. It turned the battery a silvery platinum color. Just make sure you re shrink it because it is what holds the battery case together.

I think your referring to me lol, since IDK who else has done the same

Anyways, just take some nail polish remover on a towel, and it rubs right off, makes it shiny silver, only I made the mistake of running it with no shrink, so its beat up now, but if I were to of re-shrinked the pack it would been perfect Or you can shrink it with what ever color shrink you want, its not hard to find different color shrink that fits the pack

I don't think I've ever seen someone as picky as to want their battery to be a different color than what they come in. It's covered by a body, isn't it?
