That a bit on the heavy side if you ask me.But with smaller mah rated packs they will get lighter.

these cells only lose capasity if you run them all the way to empty, stop as soon as you seen ANY voltage drop and they'll last a long time... don't you have to do some minor dremel work on the chassis in some cars to get the SLIGHTLY wider pack to fit, i'd assume so. anyway these packs are amazing, even if they don't catch on, they still are really really powerful. btw i dont think a collision will cause explosions, only overheating/overcharging. i think...

I think the Thunder power 8200mah pack weighs close to 2 pounds. The only reason I have this packs is the fact they have a high discharge rate.

One guy at the local hobby store wants to pay $600 for each pack. I'm still doing some tests to see if they can be relaible.

I don't know how much juice these packs had in them, but I've been running my Stampede for 45min. and the pack still has juice. The power from one pack in amazing. The good thing about this packs is that they come with a PCM module that protects them from under/over volatage. I have a brushless setup in my truck and the motor and speed control got a workout. The battery didn't even break a sweat.

I didn't pay anything. They are samples for testing. I plan on bringing these cells and other capacities to the market real soon.

The people that work at my local hobby shop said they might cost upwards of $1200 compared with Thunder Power and Kokam at the same capacity. This one guy wanted to pay $800 and then he came back saying he'll pay $600.

The price thye were telling me was based on the 12000mah capacity. I could have a 7.4volts 4800mah pack made for less than a matched 3300mah 7.2volts pack. I think the 3300nimh packs go for almost $100. We are talking about 1500mah more capacity and an extra 0.2 or 1.2 volts (depending on how you want rate the voltage) for less.
