i've been doing a little research into lipo's and there are more than 200 independent cell manufacturers worldwide. Lipo's and lion batteries are in just about everything you see out there today so there is a HUGE market, just think about how many cell phone batteries exist.

To make a new cell size is not quite as difficult as nimh/nicd cans because there is no C/D/AA/AAA size designation.

These cells can come from anywhere.

The size is within ROAR rules and the power should be amazing as well. With those numbers, it's the most powerful Lipo race pack so far, in paper at least.

I wonder if AE will be importing/distributing them as the rest of the LRP products, and if so, what will happen with the Reedy packs?

Also, when will they be avaliable, and have they been submitted to ROAR?

The LRP packs have been ROAR approved for some time already.

says their the same size as a nimh pack, with case and all, and with that capacity that's saying something. Sounds like it should fit into everything with no problem.
