The LiPo scenario is changing - HV (high voltage packs) are coming on to the scene and will eventually replace standard LiPo packs. For the time being, Hyperion are producing a small range of standard 3.7V per cell LiPo packs for those who remain wedded to the older style - you see them displayed below here.

These packs come with a balancing plug that is compatible with the Hyperion range of chargers with built-in balancers, but the standard is changing to XH balance plugs (at last common sense prevails and one style of balance plug is being adopted). Also, these packs come with a power plug fitted, but the XT30 and XT60 plugs have been adopted - fine if you already use these. If you use Deans you can change the plug, or make up a Deans-XT60 adapter to use in your aircraft and for charging. See XT-60 and XT-30 plugs on the connectors page.

These packs are smaller and lighter than most, and less expensive, and they present as a compelling range of LiPo batteries. In the chart below, the number in the cell type column indicates the mAh capacity of the pack. The Series column indicates 2S (7.4V), 3S (11.1V), 4S (14.8V).

Please note - LG325, 335 and 345 packs have been discontinued - they have been replaced by a smaller range of G5 packs below and HV packs are becoming the norm (click on the link to see the HV range).

All packs are 50C or 70C maximum and take a maximum charge of 4.2V per cell
The G550 packs are 25/50C - 25C continuous draw and 50C for 10 seconds
The G570 packs are 35/70C - 35C continuous draw and 70C for 10 seconds
New technology gives longer life and consistent performance
Do not charge these packs using HV settings! Do not exceed 4.2V per cell
