Default New Use for Lipo Battery

I ride motorcyles and have one of these horns on all of them, but I was sitting at a light the other day and had a ghetto wannabe next to me with his rap playing so loud nothing I did drowned it out, in fact MY windows were shaking. But he had all his windows down (so we all could listen to his poor choice in music I suppose) and I could've stuck an arm in his window pretty easy and this came to mind. It's a Stebel Nautilus Mini Air Horn with a 3s 1500mah battery with Dean's connector and a horn button wired to one side. I don't know if I would use it, but it was kinda fun making and should be a fun thing to have at rallies.

I checked out how many amps it pulled last night, 16.5, well within the limits of the 20C 1500mah battery and it should give a long enough burst to last thru any redlight. It's just a hassle carrying the battery around since my truck gets to 120F. here in Texas.

I used to have a horn like this on my bike.

Worked real well to get cars to stop. Something about loud equals big.

I have hundreds...no thousands of cellular batteries at work. (well we're about to scrap thousands of perfectly good ones soon). Anyway I got tired of charging my 1.5v AAA for my little radio. I took the risk of blowing something and hooked up a 3.7v 1200mah (i think) battery. I just hook up leads from a battery charger for an hour or so every once and a while. Never dies on me anymore.
