Life Source - More power in a smaller, lighter package!

13 reasons why LiFeSource packs are your best battery buy.

Some batteries offer only a few advantages. LiFeSource LiFe (Lithium-Iron-Phosphate) packs offer them all. Higher energy density. Lightness and compact size. More consistent performance per charge. Over twice the useful life of the next-best alternative. And greater safety for you and your equipment.

LiFeSource packs give you all that and more, for about the same price as the packs you're probably using now.

So get the most for your money: Go LiFeSource!


200-3200mAh Capacities

1. They discharge more evenly
The average voltage of a LiFeSource battery pack stays higher longer than it does for any other type of R/C battery. You need batteries you can count on and LiFeSource packs deliver.

2. They hold a charge longer
Even when they're not in use, NiMH packs may lose up to 30% of its charge each month. LiFeSource packs will lose 10% or less, eliminating the need to "top off" a pack.

3. They're safer than LiPo (Lithium-Polymer) cells
One of the big differences between LiPo packs and LiFe packs: LiFeSource packs don't vent or catch fire during charging. That makes them easier to charge, and safer for you and your equipment.

4. They're better values than NiMH packs
LiFe packs offer more advantages for about the same money as a NiMH pack — and that makes them a better value.

5. They're lighter than NiMH packs
It's simple R/C math: less weight = more performance. And more performance is always good. .

6. They're safer than LiPo (Lithium-Polymer) cells
With a LiFeSource pack, the voltage of each cell is brought into balance with every other cell, allowing all cells to charge to the maximum possible voltage (power) and capacity (flying time). This means better performance and longer life.

7. They offer more voltage per cell
Maximum voltage for a NiCd or NiMH cell is 1.2V. Maximum voltage for a balanced LiFe cell is 3.7V — over three times more!

8. and more capacity per ounce
An 8-cell, 9.6V, 600mAh NiMH pack weighs 5.7 oz (161 g). But a 3-cell. 9.9V, 1500mAh LiFe pack not only offers 250% more capacity, but weighs 1.2 oz. (34 g) less as well.

9. They outlast NiMH packs 2 to 1
LiFe packs are good for over 1,000 charges. NiMH packs? About half that — 500 cycles or less.

10. They perform more consistently, charge after charge.
Most batteries begin to lose the ability to hold a charge after a certain number of charges. But LiFe performance is consistently strong, from the first charge to the last!

11. They don't have "memory" problems
No memory means no need to cycle — and that's something to remember.

12. They charge quickly — and respond instantly.
LiFe packs do both, and their low internal resistance is the reason. As a result, they can react to large, sudden loads almost instantaneously with little or no voltage drop.

13. They're "greener" than other battery chemistries
LiFe batteries don't need cycling or recycling. Instead of the cobalt in LiPo packs, or the nickel and cadmium in NiCds, LiFeSource packs use "earth-friendly" iron and manganese.

And remember, these benefits are common to all LiFeSource packs. For the added benefits of LiFeSource receiver and transmitter packs, please view the Life Source Receivers and Transmitters !

For best charging results…
LiFeSource battery packs should only be charged using a LiFe-compatible charger and balancer, or LiFe-compatible charger with built-in balancer.

With the right equipment, LiFe charging is easy and economical — and the LiFeSource AC/DC Balancing Charger is both. It starts automatically, lets you select the charging rate — and balance charges 1-3 cell LiFe packs to perfection. To learn more, click here.
