Why don't you contact H-L directly and ask them for the specifications?

i just got one of the B11X7F packs, which is 7-cell 1100mah. i put it on the triton to cycle last night.....0.5A charge and 1.0A discharge. 2 cycles gave me approx. 1150mah charge, 1050mah discharge numbers. I plan on giving it a charge at 1A and a charge at 2A then go flying. im not sure what kind of cells they are. the shrink wrap is dark green, no markings.

I know the powerizer 2/3A 1100 HiPo cells are Dark Green. BYD is one of the biggest Battery manufacturers out there. (and inexpensive) so my bet is that is what they are. BYD 2/3A High Discharge. These cells have been discussed on the board before and the result is that those green cells are decent but no KAN1050..

Anyway just my .02 worth.

I appreciate the input. I did email HL direct to see who the manufacturer is but they've yet to respond. It's looking like multiple orders and multiple shipping charges again. The only thing that sucks about this hobby is that no one place seems to stock the best of everything. Maybe I'm just crabby. Good night.

These fine cells are made in China for AA Portable Power. They list a cell with IDENTICAL markings as the current HL packs. Size is right on too!

Now if I could only score a thousand at a decent price I have visions of direct soldering to make packs of 20A capacity with decent voltage retention.
