Lithium Polymer batteries have been the ultimate game changer in RC, and if you're old enough to recall those dreaded NiMh / NiCd days of endless charge times and ultra low run times (shudder), you will count your lucky starts that we are in the age of fast charge, high power electric performance that is not only epic in power, but affordable as well.

In the age of LiPo batteries, choosing a LiPo battery for your RC needs can be MASSIVELY overwhelming. Seriously. From voltage, mAh, charge ratings, discharge ratings, dimensions, brands and more, it can be a formidable challenge for an average RC enthusiast and a chasm-like expanse for someone new to the RC mix.

But don't worry - we're here to help, and we've laid out the below info to help demystify the LiPo world and make your next LiPo purchase an enjoyable one, versus a frustrating endeavor that ends in pure Luddite rage.

The Pulse Ultra PLC400D Duo Charger - And Why I Love It.

I've owned a few nitro powered RC models back in the day, but my RC flying fun really took off (sorry about the pun - couldn't help myself) when LiPo powered models came to the fore, offering immense power, setup ease, low cost, and best off all, the lack of nitro slime that covered every square inch of my RC model.
