    lipo with heat sink

    [url=http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=17504]HobbyKing Online R/C Hobby Store : Turnigy 6000mAh 2S2P 7.4v 25C hardcase pack[/url]

    i am a subscriber to hobbykings news letter so i get a email telling me about all the new products and one is a 6000mah 2s lipo hardcase with a heat sink on it... what do u think of this...

    i dont think a lipo will generate enough heat for a heat sink

    i dont get why the heatsink is on only one cell :/.... but anyways i strap more metal to the engine of my dirtbike to help cool that baby off!!!
    full throttle or else it must be broke but breaking it is just another reason to build it bigger and better than before!

    I love the product description! It seems alittle pointless to me because my Turnigy hardcases never even get warm.

    If your lipo gets hot enough to warrant using a heatsink, then there is definitely something wrong with either your setup, the battery, or the battery doesn't supply enough power for your setup. My lipo batteries barely even get warm in my 8ight e.
    I reject your reality, and blow it up with C4.

    Yeah Lipo's should never get more than warm. This is part of what makes them such good stores of energy. That hobbyking battery is a gimmick.
