Default LIPO Product Idea - Who wants to partner with me?

So Ling is saying heating a lipo pack produces better #'s. ROAR has said a lipo sack is necessary for safety. The next logical step is a heated 'lipo sack'. If someone wants to produce it, I will take just 20% of the profits for the idea

patent pending...

Too much to carry. Why carry 2 things when you can carry only 1? Plus if the bag is carbon fiber colored it will fetch an extra $20. If its Tamiya blue an extra $40 or if I can partner with MuchMore an extra $100.

Do you put it and the lipo in the sack together or do you charge it then use the warmer? Or do you not use a lipo sack?

I should say, I was using it, but it was a hassle to fit it in the liposack and keep an eye on temp while it was covered up. I've been leaving it at home lately. A combined bunker/warmer would be nice. Maybe a really tough easy bake oven is the answer. Or a reptile heating pad in a liposack.

Those heating pads come in sizes like 6X8 and are under 20 bucks. Not a bad idea.

Now, all you need to do is combine that with a Liposack and you're set.

Yeah I was thinking 2 leads to the sack. One for the power for heat and one for charging (but also have internal connectors to the sack for the battery charging. Then put a display on the outside to help monitor things. Maybe add a couple of blue LEDs and some ringtones. Those are always worth a few extra $$$'s.

Fine I'll take 30% and give Ling 10% . I still get most of the credit for the combining with lipo sack, carbon fiber colors, and blue LEDs

I have been away for a sec...sup fellas. I thought heat was the enemy of Lipo...now I am hearing they produce better numbers when warm. Thats fitting. It was BRICK here in NYC and thinking I could get some good pratice outside, which would be a cinch to keep the motor cool, I noticed fade after about 10 minutes. Fellas, get the pitbull up to speed.
