LiPo Batteries – I’m Chargin’ Mah Nerfz0rz!

Hello Nerfers! I’m here today to tell you about the wonders of Lithium Polymer batteries!

LiPo’s have a bad rap in our hobby due to perceived dangers of their usage – the manufacturing process of these power cells means they must be treated with care, but by following instructions and taking the right precautions, they are no more dangerous than that set of AA’s you have decomposing in a TV remote in your own living room!

What is a LiPO Battery?

According to wikipedia, a LiPo battery is this:

“Lithium-ion polymer batteries, polymer lithium ion, or more commonly lithium polymer batteries (abbreviated Li-poly, Li-Pol, LiPo, LIP, PLI or LiP) are rechargeable (secondary cell) batteries. LiPo batteries are usually composed of several identical secondary cells in parallel to increase the discharge current capability, and are often available in series “packs” to increase the total available voltage.”

Does that clear up everything? No? Oh, alright then… better keep reading!
