Just when you thought they couldn't get any more ridiculous.

I can see why they came up with this idea, and part of me wants to say 'ha, that's kinda clever really'- but in reality, fast electric boats are very demanding of the electronics, the batteries in particular- you simply can't water cool average or crappy lipos and hope that'll make the boat run better. You gotta spend the money on better equipment that would never need such elaborate cooling to start with.

If only they could sell a lipo without the heat of those blue flame stickers.

Most boat guys I know warm their packs up before running. No one is looking for cooler cell temps

More weight, junk & marketing hype to stuff into your Spartan!

Packs with a "True" High C rate don't get hot!

Oh I forgot! Those over-rated, over-priced, over-advertised packs are only 10C cells to begin with!

Maximum Ripoff! More junk to weigh your boat down that does absolutely nothing but help a struggling, fraudulent company survive.

Maximum Corruption!

I thought their packs were waterproof? So that would reneder their cells impervious to water and its cooling effects? I think they have somehow found a way around the 2nd law of thermodynamics. I bet they spent alot of R&D on this... Good for them, hopefully they can find a way around the theory of relativity soon, cause I would really like to leave the galaxy next week for vacation.

Wow....This to me sounds like the last desperate attempt to sell a few more, but now super expensive packs, optional pump and even lower grade cells (Might be why they need cooling) before MA goes bankrupt. What will cooling just the top and bottom of the cells going to do anyways? They should've added a cooling plate in between the cells as well. I can also see many failures if the cooling hose gets loose and water just floods things a bit . If anyone knows a moron/idiot that buys them, please post the info here.

If they were really even close to 150C then they wouldnt need water cooling. But ya, true 8C batteries like those need all the cooling they can get.

hahahahahha can they get any worse????

they must have seen the turnigy packs with the alloy heatsinks on one side and tried to go one better

the " bigger " the name the worse the product

bet a bog standard cheap 5200mah 30c hobbyking hardcase kicks its butt on runtime punch and lower temps

if they sold lipos where i live our consumer laws would have bankrupted them long ago all hype no performance

So I am shocked we have not seen Mr Willcox in here to pimp these new badass watercooled packs!
