lithium-ion batteries

I am looking for some battery packs for my IFO. I was wondering if anyone has had experience with these types of packs. Batteries America has a deal for two packs and a charger for about $90 and that would be about the same as three nicad packs. I have heard claims about the flight times of Li, and wanted to find out if they were true. So, how about it guys?? Jim

Be careful...I bought them from there and had to send them back... they were too heavy and being 2-cell packs didn't give my motors enough juice... people are having more luck with the 3-cell tadrian lithium setups....run an ezone search on the topic

I have a pack, a bit heavy. Check out www.magtechinc.net for Tadiran packs. Work great, but not cheap.
