I read the questions about the C rating and it is just a created rating like companies did in the Nimh days. Is it actually a 30C with inflated numbers. I guess I will find out tonight, I am getting my #709 from LHS tonight. Anyway it will be a good upgrade from Nimh's
dude.... each lipo cell is 3.7v with 2s (2 cells in SERIES) so 2s in lipo is 7.4.

the p after a number is parallel and wont increase voltage just amps

That looks like it could be the KO Propo heatsink for the VFS-1 BMC.

I have a RC8e, I was thinking of using the (2) #709 packs. I have the Hyperion 0606i and Hyperion EOS0720iNET3 DC Balance Chargers. Is it possible to charge andbalance them at the same time? (with same charger) How do I balance the two packs at same time?
