New Product
New 7.4 volt 4000mAh Spektrum DX7S and DX8 lipo

Hey guys,

Next week we're bringing in a brand new TX lipo for the Spektrum DX7S and DX8. This lipo has the same specifications as the optional Spektrum brand lipo, but is a fraction of the price!

We're taking pre-orders now, so make sure to pick one up soon, as this shipment will not last long.

Click here to check it out:

Tug,

This battery contains its own internal cell balancer, so no balance plug is required.

Correction - The DX8 has a built in charger and can charge NiMh and lipo batteries.

Not sure I understand this. The HH lipo is the same voltage and current with b/i balance circuit and it charges from stock charger in radio( grant it very slow ,but charges )

Yes you can, the charger built in the radio charges both the stock nimh and the lipo. When charging the lipo it will stop charging when full unlike the nimh that just keeps trickling.

Part of the charging/balancing is built into the Spektrum lipo batt. and why it is expensive.

The Street price on the Spektrum battery is $58.

When someone says something is a "fraction of the price", the fraction is usually smaller than 17/20ths.
