Hello,
Does anyone know a good source for Sanyo RC3300HV cells? I've been doing searches but have yet to find a reasonable sourse. The only one I could find wants $14 per cell.

Thanks,
John

They don't have the Sanyo, however http://www.batterystation.com has the GP3300's for about $5.00 each. I just bought a bunch a few days ago and, if you are willing to spring for a case, the quantity price comes down a bit more.

I second the GP-3300 cells.

I am specifically looking for the RC3300HV cells based on AirWolfRC's chart and information. It makes since.

Thanks for the GP3300 recommendation, but I'll stick with what I got until I find these RC3300HVs.

Any source recommendations, please?

Thanks,
John

Check out Radical RC. http://radicalrc.secure-mall.com/sh...riteria=&rec=48

They've got a 4.8V pack for 32.00 - Sanyo RC 3300mah HV 4 Cell NiMH 4.8v . I run them on both my all heli's. Great stuff! A tip... get two pig tails installed - one a normal JR or Fut connector, the should be a Deans power pole with the 14ga wire. That way you can direct charge the battery at high amps with no problems. My schulze can pump 2+ amps into the pack without even getting warm.

You might as well go for the GP3600 cells. The only thing is they cost a lot more then the GP3300.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

John,
I understand perfectly and, we in this hobby tend to be like that...I know I am, so no sweat. Just thought that they might be a suitable substitute. You might want to stop by that site some time. Pretty interesting and the gent who handles the LiPo's for him is a fountain of information on LiPo's.

I had just gotten fed up with buying Nimh and Nicd battery packs at three and four times their worth. I decided to build my own, however before I embarked on that journey, I did a crash course in handling the darned things and was amazed at how I had been mishandling them. This all started when I had three 3000mah packs go bad (or at least had the symtoms of going bad). After the crash course, I tried deep cycling them and, for the most part, I was able to recover most of their capacity

No problem. To each his own. Of course, there's probably a reason why you can't find the RC3300HV cells and the GP-3300 cells are everywhere....

Spend some time on http://www.ezonemag.com and you'll see the GP-3300's are the best sub-c cells currently available.

Wolfdad and Ace,
Hmm, maybe you're right. Did some reading and see what you mean. I didn't mean to belittle you inputs, sorry.

Rob,
Thanks for the Radical RC link. Funny that they have those and not the GP3300 cells. I've always had good service from Radical.

Thanks,
John

John, no problem, you weren't belittling anyone. I spend a lot of time on ezone.com and hear folks are seriously abusing the GP-3300's and they're holding up well. You're know they're running them hard when they have to wrap them in Kapton tape because they're getting so hot they're melting the stock shrink wrap.

I've had good luck with http://www.battlepack.com

Steve at battlepack.com is very helpful and very knowledgeable. Ask him what he thinks of the RC3300HV vs. the GP-3300 cells.
