Anyone know anything about this battery? Is this the new style of batterys? Is it better than the lipo's?

Quite a little discussion over here...

I'm using them for AP and they seem to work really well - a little extra weight but rated at 1000+ cycles so they should really pay off over time. They will dump hard but maybe not quite like the newer 50C lipo's.

I am assuming its maintaing voltage, I get no bog what so ever and the climb rate is on par with my Rex 600 and raptor 50 with moded crank/carb

I start at 34.6 or so and end at 32.1 V or thereabouts.

Ive been using an 8s pack in my Swift. Its voltage under load is equiv to a 6s high discharge LiPo. I get absolutly no bog for 4 mins of pure 3D and another min and a half of hover. I dont even bother flying it after the 4 mins. I can recharge the pack in 30 mins @ 5 amps and the pack takes in 2300mah consistantly(I usually discharge the packs at 1 amp and then recharge them again but at the field Ill just charge it as soon as it comes out of the heli).
