Yup ! ..Lipo are real efficient energy storage cells ....however if you misuse them in anyway, you'll lose that efficiency and you'll notice it by a drop in their capacity !

I think you'll find that phones use Li-ion batteries. But yes Lipo batteries are safe if you use them correctly.

Well… Lipo is in fact a type of Li-Ion battery. Batteries commonly known as "Li-Ion" have a cylindrical shape. These use a liquid electrolyte and therefore need to have a steel "case" just like any NiHM. In Lithium-Polymer the electrolyte is a polymer and therefore the batteries are easily manufactured in prismatic shape. You surely won't find the cylindrical cells in any of today's mobile phone.

I have seen that the HPI Challenge is using Platinum Lipo packs to run 15 minutes final races !!!

I think it will be extremely popular ! A new dimension for electric racing is born with the Platinum packs...

Yes, I have seen it too, I think it will allow people to race and even if they make a driving mistake you have time to come back to the lead, like in nitro racing.

Same as any other battery, you charge them until your quality peak charger (designed to charge LiPo's of course) stops charging.

I had a lot of concerns about charging these cells before I bought mine. But once you have them, you quickly realise, that with the right charging equipment, its not any different than charging your regular packs.

Plug it in...make sure all your settings are correct on the charger...let it charge.

The biggest difference is all the other stuff that usually goes in between charging. No more discharging...equalizing...or waiting to charge it so that it will finish right before your next race...

My packs are taking about 52 minutes to fully charge at around 4700Mah @ 4.8 amp. I havent reached the 4800 mark yet, maybe because my charger is the integy 16x8v6 and its set exactly at 4800mah, maybe a setting of 5000Mah will allow the charger to throw a little extra Mah in them, not that I need the extra Mah anyway there's more than enough

Anyone try to fit one of these in the RDX? We are talking about running brushless/lipo class this summer. Hoping it will fit in the car…

It comes partial charged. It was the difference between 4800 and what the charge left on it was.
