Details

LiFe (lithium iron phosphate) is a lithium-based battery technology that is more stable and safer than LiPO. A123 batteries are based on LiFe technology. LiFe packs can be charged very rapidly and be discharged all the way without damage. Their lower voltage make them suitable for receivers that use 6V receiver batteries. On the downside, LiFe packs have lower voltage and smaller capacity than LiPOs of the same weight.

Product Highlights:

  • Lighter and smaller than NiCad and NiMH battery of the same capacity
  • Lower voltage than a LiPO, can be used with 6V receivers without a voltage regulator.
  • Includes two universal RX connectors, compatible with both Futaba and JR RX.
  • More cycle life than LiPO, up to 1000 charge cycles.
  • More stable and durable than a LiPO. LiFe rarely catch fire and would not be damaged in over-discharge.

Specifications:

  • 1800mAh Capacity
  • 2S - 6.6V - 5C Discharge
  • Dimensions: 96mm X 16mm X 27mm(3.78in X 0.63in X 1.06in)
  • Weight:104.5g (3.69oz)
  • Comes with Align/E-Flite balancing taps (JST-XH)
  • Two Universal Receiver Connector (compatible with both Futaba and JR receivers) installed
  • 30 Day Money Back Guarantee

Very happy user here. Review by Bruce Underwood

Love these LIFE batteries, using with 2.4 Hi-Tech Aurora 9 Radio System, flying SPA Pattern with 4 JR digital servos and 1 Analog (on throttle). Yesterday flew 7 pattern flights (about 9 to 10 minutes each flight. MY digital charger (Turnigy) cut off at 587 MAH charging at .3 A til the peak detection showed "full charge". That's hard to believe, but true. Another feature of these batteries is the plugs, plug directly into the Hi-Tech receiver switch and has a heavy duty Dean's connector for access to charge from. No modifying and having to add appropriate connectors, they are already there. I'm an "old dawg"....(age 77)...but the modeling buddy that put me on to these batteries and Value Hobbies, did me a real favor. My first experience with LIFE (still apprehensive of fire from Lipo charging, etc),
and it's been a good one. What an improvement over the Burgess B batteries we started with on the single channel receivers in the old days, then through AA's, then nicad and NIMH...now these. Love the progress that has been made in the model industry. Thanks Value for making them available at such a bargain price.

This is my 3rd 1800mah life pack. They are the perfect size to fit in my 60size planes. They all have 5 high torque servo's and I get 6 15min flights before charging. Probably could go longer but just charge after 6 as a rule of thumb. I charge them with the GT Power Xcharger from VH! And they charge back up fast! Never had one puff on me yet. (Posted on 6/6/2015)
Great LiFe batteries...plan on replacing them more often than the Hobbico LiFesource batteries Review by Mathew

I have 3 Hobbico LiFesource batteries and they are going strong 3 years later. I have 12 GeForce LiFe batteries ranging from 700, 1100 and 1800mah LiFe batteries and EVERY 1800mah LiFe battery puffed over the winter.

Hobbico batteries are 7-9mOhms per cell while the GeForce packs are 22-28mOhms. Hobbico packs are also a full year older than the GeForce packs.

I obviously think these are still a great deal as I'm buying 10 more, but I wouldn't trust a puffed pack in a nice plane so for $10, they're a great deal and I can replace them every year. (Posted on 5/10/2015)

This is the perfect radio battery for the Airtronics M12 or MT4. It is just the right size for the battery compartment and lasts forever. Oh, it is also 1/3 of the price of similar packs from other manufacturers. (Posted on 4/23/2015)

Great battery's for the price I use them in all my 2.4 planes flying JR and have never had a brown out yet. They hold up for a hole day of flying and then some. So far I've bought 6 with no problems with any of them, I 'am running two of these with 5 hitec HV 100 oz. + servos and they hold up all day. Buy one you can't go wrong. (Posted on 1/8/2015)
Good LiFe Pack for Great value! Review by Phil

These LiFe packs make excellent receiver batteries for your glow planes. this is my third one and I get 5 or 6 15 min flights out of my 60 & 40 size glow planes running Rx and 5 standard analog servos. I'm sure they would work for gas ignition systems too! why pay for the expensive A123 packs when you can get these for this price? (Posted on 6/13/2014)

I got two of these batteries one is in my Pulse 60XT the other one is in my PT 17 Stearman biplane. Both planes have hi torque servos ( 5 per plane ) the 600 mah nicad batteries I had in them got two flights ( 10 to 15 min) on a all night charge. With these batteries I did fly the pulse 4 10 min flights the other day and it took around 40 min to recharge it haven't took the biplane out yet I will get two more one in the 3d plane and one for the trainner (Posted on 3/10/2014)
