Where To Buy Light Weight Loose High C Rated Lipo Cells

I am looking for a place to buy individual Lipo cells that are light weight, and have a decent C rating to build my own packs. I am thinking is 2s and 3s packs for my upcoming projects. 200ma 3S 30-45C 180ma 2-3S 30-45 C, maybe smaller, I wont know until I fish the build and test it.

Basically I want to order a big old box of tiny loose cells and build my own batteries. I see the packs a lot of the top guys use are custom made, where are you getting the good cells to build them with?

I hope this is not another one of those tightly held secrets, and you might consider to help me find what I need. Thanks for your time, AKf

Thru All-E-RC you can buy Thunderpower individual cells. They were the best way to make small 2S and 3S packs until TP realized what people were doing and then made those packs available.

I think you'll find that the markup on packs is minimal, and not really worth your time making them yourself (well, that's what I found at least).

Hyperion sells some of the smaller cells separately. (120/180/240/320)


You can save about 1/2 a gram with the 120 cells versus a stripped down 2S 120 pack.
(Hyperion uses a small PCB to join the cells)

HK also sells individual cells. I have used the 240 and 360 cells in the past and they worked fine.
