Default Li-Fe Battery on Futaba 4PK , Better!?

Just wondering is there any Futaba 4PK user has try the battery below

I am wondering what is the benefit, compare with the Ni-MH 1700mah battery that comes with the 4PK ?

Is it better then the battery comes with the 4PK package ?

It definitely has more voltage. More wattage also...

6.6V * 1500mAh = 9900 watts

4.2V * 1700mAh = 7140 watts

I hope I did my math right.

Is that mean that it can last longer between each charge? ( sorry I am not very good at the electrical stuff )

Also, if the voltage is higher, is that also means that it will be easier to burn the electronic component inside the 4pk !?

In theory, yes (That is if my math is right). It should last longer. It will also be much safer due to the chemistry.

Normally there is a high tolerance on electronics. It should work fine with anything between 3.6 - 7.2 volts.
