Re: A123 and Life batteries

Here's a table of Li- based battery chemistry from that site. It explains why there are voltage differences between some LiFe packs.

Re: A123 and Life batteries

A123 ( brand name) are LiFe batteries . LiFe is the chemical makeup of A123 cells .They are one of the same. Li-on are totally fifferent battery and do not have the high discharge capacities required by high drain motor systems.
High enough capacity li-on cells may work ok for receiver/servo applications but not for motor use.
