Default life packs compared to lipos

So on the mbx6 thread there has been some talk about these life packs and how people are liking these. I did a search and couldn't find any info about these packs and what they even are. I am looking to switch from nmhi on my 1|10 and 1\8 receiver pack along with starter boxes. I am really liking the power of the lipos but of course they seem to be much more high matience then what I am used to. I was just curious to find out all of the options before I commit to anything. Also, are these life packs requiring specific chargers for their duties.

LIFE packs are also lithium based its the ferous bit thats different, they are a much more durable cell compared to lipo and are safer if overcharged or overdischarged compared to lipo which would basically be end of for them, you will need a life/po capable charger but they are readily available for little money or a lot depending on budget

Are you sure they fit in the battery box or have you got them sitting outside the box as the measurements supplied dont fit .

85x30x17 should fit fine... that's the same measurements as my LiPo pack and it fits in the box ok. I do however dremel those partitions between the receiver / battery and switch / battery but that is more to do with fitting the wiring comfortably.

The flat pack fits fine in MBX6 and Xray. The Hump pack fit fine in the RC8B box but wont fit the Losi. For Losi Cobra has the best Life batt.
