You can order as many as you want but they will come two per package. Good thing is that they come quick! 5-6 days door to door . Check out the thread above for some more info. I just got a bunch more revo packs this week and a bump coming this week. For those interested I have a less 10% coupon that still works. Code = Rusk14
So if I order 4 batteries will I receive two shipments and be charged shipping twice?

Re: EDF lipos

I placed one order paid one shipping charge and got multiple parcels. Double check with revo but I believe that is the case now.

Re: EDF lipos

Interesting. I read somewhere lipo shipments are limited to 2 units. I sent an email to Revolectrix to see how a 4 lipo order would be handled.

Re: EDF lipos

I just did a mock order on the Revolectrix website and it will let you order 4 lipos in one order. What I also noticed is the shipping charge for 2 lipos is half the price of ordering 4 lipos. I guess you can order as many as you want but shipping will always be calculated on 2 units.

Re: EDF lipos

I think they charged me $10.00 for the second package. I ordered 4 Batteries and was charged the shipping then I was sent a paypal request asking for the extra $ 10.00

Re: EDF lipos

Unfortunately I do not have a Revolectrix 435 to compare but today I ran my Vampire on a low usage Nano Tech 4S 3300mah lipo that is about 2-3 years old. On the meter I am getting 700W @ 47A. Than I tried a brand new Turnigy Bolt 4S 3450mah HV lipo charged to 4.35v per cell and I am getting 855W @ 51A. If these have a reasonable life span I would say these are a winner. Based on what I have seen with the standard Revo lipos the 435s would be just as good.

Re: EDF lipos

Last night I got the chance to try out the Turnigy Bolt 4S 3450mah HV lipo charged to 4.35v. Right out of the gate the performance turned the EDF into a whole new jet with a noticeable increase in power. It also sounded like it had a turbine in it. I wonder how the Revolectrix 435 would compare in performance. The Bolt is definitely a great battery. I also put a couple flights on my Rifle with a 40C Revo lipo and it came down cool and no puffing. I would say both brands offer solid batteries.

Re: EDF lipos

I reached out to Revolectrix and they confirmed their web pricing is accurate for Canada and US. You can order as many lipos as you want but they will be shipped two per package.

Re: EDF lipos

Told you I just got a bunch the 435 blends rock! Just got my bump too...looking forward to trying it. FYI the coupon rusk14 still works for less 10%. Let us all know what you think after you try the packs.

Re: EDF lipos

I can't vouch for the brand but the Floureon brand was being discussed on RCG.
The prices shipped are shockingly cheap. One 6S 6200mah 35C has been ordered to try. Just under $61USD shipped.
