Re: Pouch or Cylindrical LifePo4

For real performance, most of us go straight to Hobby King for RC lipo packs. For real zip, you want some real voltage, 72v minimum. So you may want to keep the weight and volume down by carrying a smaller than 20 ah pack. If you cross the 100v line, 20 ah pouches are going to get downright big, he...

Re: Pouch or Cylindrical LifePo4

When you say dump... you mean power, as in amps, right? 20AH A123s are seriously as good as you're going to get with lifepo4. Pouch cells tend to be lighter and smaller per amp hour, versus cylindrical lifepo4 cells. But A123 is the only formulation that really has good power output. ( Headways are...
