Default Hard Case for Li-Po Battery

where can i find those hard rectangular case for Li-Po batteries?

i bought a stick back (traditional tamiya style round stick pack) by mistake and i took the hard case out. leaving the battery in the shrink wrapped exposed which is strapped to the chassis on my TC. its pretty secure, but i would feel much better it had a hard casing of some sort.

thanks

Probably not exactly what you are looking for but MaxAmps has lipo skins. Not your normal hard case but it is protection.

I use this skin for a home made LiPO (3.7v 10800mah 25c) and it works pretty well.

you could make one out of plasticard or thin ABS. it's not a major struggle.

markf3x, what do you use your lipo for?
