double check before you plug it in or your KO may go Poof.....

Muchmore's Ko lipo battery wires are reverse also. Lucky nothing pop. The Losi is correct though. The red wire should be on the right and the black wire in the middle when you look the plug with the wire pointing down and the plug's holes point up and with the metal contacts facing away from you. When installing the battery the red wire will be on the backside (non-steering side).

most of the li-po packs come with a charging/balancing plug thats different then the one plugged into the radio
i use the ht battery charger to charge my reciever/transmitter and starterbox batteries

im using a VXR lipo transmitter pack on my 3pk. got it on sale from our lhs they had 2000+mah packs coming in, so i got the last 700mah lying on the shelf it was for a KO transmitter, but following the plug orientation, i just switched the + and - for use in my 3pk. it's 11.1V, 700mah, 3 cell lipo. i think i get about 3+ hours on a charge the voltage is always higher than what i get with 8AA nimhs and its very lightweight.
