These are a major upgrade for Eflite, ParkZone Ultra Micro and Kyosho Minium series micro RC models, and fit either without modification. With Hyperion's G3 technology inside, they deliver more mA per gram than the stock batteries, while sustaining higher voltage under high loads, for greatly improved power performance. Of course, like all Hyperion G3 Lipo they last for hundreds of cycles, with consistant performance, when properly charged and stored.
The fact that they can be safely charged at up to 5C rates - for charge times as low as 10 to 12 minutes - is just icing on a very tasty cake.

I really like your website! I have enjoyed all of the models I have gotten thus far. The LiddleRod is a great model, sporty and fun to fly, and the QuickOats 100 was great, more fun than I expected!
