Default lie-poh or lip-poh???

So how do you pronounce Lipo exactly? Excuse the dumb question but I've met so many non-native english speakers with their own weird way of pronouncing it that even I get confused.

Feels like the 1980s again, where I've heard Ni-Cad being pronounced as 'knee-cad', 'knee-card', 'nigh-card' and all sorts of assorted weirdness.

And I once knew a guy who pronounced carbon fibre as 'carbon fibber'...
