Supposed to increase flight times and reduce heat/damage from internal impedence. Anybody tried them yet?

How did THAT get in there?

I read over there website and I have to say my gut tells me these folks are selling snake oil. "Nanotechnology circuitry in the polymer matrix that pulsates." Im not a rocket scientist but Im going to just take a wild guess and say thats just a fancy way of describing lithium polymer technology in general. They claim 20% - 60% increase in duration. All there batteries are rated at 10-12 C. Isnt there a formula for determing how long a battery will last using C and mAH? And which is it 20% or 60%? Why bother posting those kind of vague numbers? I would really like to know if they are a ripoff or for real. Also the fact that the only place that sells them at all is Hell ihobby makes me even more suspicous. I suspect they are behind this new battery company. Disclaimer: I dont have facts these are my guesses.

Thought it was too good to be true. Was just shopping around for better flight times. The best I can get is a little over 18min. with two Agogee 1050`s in paralell but the weight to power is kinda weak. Oh well, I`ll keep searching. Thanks for the advice!
