    The effect on the lipo market would be phenomenal. Cheaper, higher discharge and charge rates, greater number of cycles...

      I want to see the power to weight ratio reduced. Wouldn't it be nice to get 15 or 20 minutes out of a single pack?

      20 min flight time. You'd have to change club rules or you'd be waiting all day to get on a flight line at most clubs.. Lol

      So what are the graphine batteries we are getting from hobby king now...are they not true graphine? I bought a couple to try them out and they don't seem to last any longer than the ordinary turnigy lipos. They are a bit heavier as well

      This is a very good question. I saw two hobbyking"graphine" batteries today. I dont know if they fall under this catagory or if they are the real deal. Can anyone else shed some more light on this?
