I have a friend who does not fly planes or helis.
He wants me to do an LEDs setup on something for him.

My question is: Should I give him a NiCad and a Charger
or a Lipo and Charger.

Reason: He knows nothing about lipos and nothing about
charging. Or the dangers of lipos.

Any ideas on a foolproof setup for him?
Cheaspest NiCad source, cheap charger, leads, etc?

Ps. Battery has to be pretty lightweight and power
the lipos for a few hours or more...
