Default non-brand name Li-Po batteries...

Any one run them?

I'm thinking of picking up a RC10B4 and also using these generic lipo packs for the receiver batteries on my nitro cars. Any thoughts on non-brand name batteries?

with having only a 10-12c rating i wouldnt even bother...if worried about price then i would go with the Yeah Racing 3200 20c, can be found for around 35 bucks and has great punch...

If you are looking at a battery for a RX pack, check ebay. There are a few cheap $10 packs that fit the 5-cell 2/3A recess.

If you want a cheap battery for the B4, use a yeah racing pack. For $35 my pack has never let me down.

If you need a custom battery, then there are no rules as long as it suits your needs.

Before SMC released thier 3.7V lipo, I made my own for testing.

I'm using the BatterySpace 2100mah cells in my 1:12 lipo car. I wired three 2100mah cells in a 3P configuration to make a 3.7V 6300mah battery. In the pan car, they feel zippy with a 13.5 Motor. In my B4 buggy and a 7.5 Motor, the buggy looks like it has a old mabuchi motor in it. I guess the motor needs some extra volts for the tranny to rev up. I was able to see brief loads up to 60A with the 7.5motor, so I know the batteries are working. I guess, I can always bump up the gearing or drop in a faster motor for stress testing.
