cheap US available batteries - 01.13.2011, 06:03 PM

I am looking at getting some Lipo batteries. I see everybody talking about Zippy and Trunigy and brands like that. They seem to be decent, but I want a US supplier. What are some decent brands? Not looking for top of the line.

Jeff

Well, from what I have read people here have had good success with hobbypartz and some of the lipos they sell. Pretty sure a few members here use Blue lipos, and like them.

Hobbyking also has a USA warehouse where you can pick up Turnigy lipo's (not the nano-techs yet), just google "hobbyking usa warehouse" and surf the 6 or so available pages. It will only list what is available here, if you use any of the search tabs (lipo batteries for instance) it will show you items available from overseas as well.


If I could only draw what I see in my head, then afford to build it, and finaly get to play with it...

All e RC sells the hyperion CX lipos which are pretty cheap ( 25/40C ).

Otherwise:

http://www.commonsenserc.com/page.ph...ttery_html.php
http://www.onlybatterypacks.com/
http://www.spcracing.com/index.php
http://www.xtremepowersystems.net/products.php?cat=16

I would use hobbypartz or the hobbyking USA warehouse too, yeah.

Are you asking about LiPo's manufactured in the USA? If so I don't think there are any. If your talking about US distributors there are alot.

I totally would except I am not really a racer and I can't really justify top quality lipos for my needs. If Mike carried the medium quality lines I would get them from him.

Thanks guys I'll look into them.

I would like to see Mike start carrying Gens Ace packs, maybe I'll shoot him an email.

I think as long as you take some opportunities to support RCM and buy RCM products there's no reason to feel guilty about buying HK lipos.
