Hyperion LiPo cells have earned a good name amongst electric fliers. Bob Hickman has reviewed them in his Airborne columns and spoken enthusiatically about them. They measure up - in performance, durability and incorporate the latest developments in LiPo technology.

NEW - The latest release of Hyperion LiPo cells are called CX G3 or LG325 series. The manufacturers claim 25C continuous, with 45C bursts for 20 seconds, from these cells - that means that you can draw amp rates of up to 45 times the capacity of the cells (eg.1200 mAh cells can deliver up to 54A for 20 seconds). They also claim 5C charge rates are possible and give up to 80% capacity to the cells (previously a 1200 mAh pack could only be charged at 1.2A and take one hour - now you can charge at up to 6A and take 12 minutes!).

But there is more - and it is not steak knives - these packs come with a balancing plug that is compatible with the Hyperion chargers - buy these packs, and the matching active balancer, and you will have no more headaches with mismatching plugs. They match the in-built balancing set-up in Hyperion chargers.

Couple all that to the fact that these packs are smaller and lighter than most, and now much less expensive, and they present as a compelling range of LiPo batteries. In the chart, 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), 5S (18.5V).

Please note - LG325 packs have been discontinued - some are still available, but they have been replaced by a smaller range of G5 packs and HV packs are becoming the norm (click on the links).
