Charge at 2 X the C rating.
Safer then lipos.
C ratings and prices so far look good.

Very interesting but ,no weights are given for cells.

Has anyone used these new type cells yet?

They do not even give the address of the company on their site.

When I attended Philadelphia College of Pharmacy ( oldest in the country)
The Dean once said "be not the first and not the last with new things".
I have followed that advice all my life and it works.

This hurricane in Florida is cutting into my flying time:mad:

The batteries in question do show weight in grams. Multiply the grams shown by .0353 to convert the grams to ounces.

Company is a spring off of Amberjac-Projects, in merry old England, they have ties to the Valance co in Texas. A/J is into alternative power for autos, V is in to a lot of items, including black budget stuff, a lot of military items.

Well, they look good according to specification's stated, and are certainly cheap enough to try. I do not believe in Santa at this stage in my life but new things will keep being brought out . Perhaps I will try one pack and report back.

I would like to hear what Red thinks about them. He is my hero in these matters and also lives in Florida so he can't be to bad.

How about it Red? Let us know.:confused:

These batteries seem to fall somewhere in between nimh and lipo as far as weight. This is based on the nominal "c" rating of the cells and the voltage ratings which I believe is what you really need to look at. Compared to Lipo they seem very heavy. The fast charge feature is nice but my models would fly like a dog with these cells.

Sent an email to Reds who is the expert on these matters. He wants to test them first and does not believe in smoke and mirrors.

My feelings also

A 3S2P !.2AH pack goes 252 gms, (9 oz), quite a bit heavier than LiPo soft-packs! - - Ben
