Hi guys. I'm looking for any advice anyone has on good batteries for the 15 pound class that aren't LiPo. Any help or suggestions are much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I've used hobbyking's  ( these were a disappointment do not order from hk)and ep buddies cells and they seemed to work ok.....there is also buya123s.com where they are supposed to sell straight from the manufacturer.

We are looking at the  Ryodi battery, 4Ah, dose anyone know if you can just take the batteries out of the plastic case??? or do I need to disconnect something???   75 for two 18v packs, if it works it's a cheap fix.  I know one team that use Drill packs with no problems. any thoughts???

Clariton  uses the craftsman packs ....im currently experimenting with the dewalt  3s 12v 2000mah lithium ion packs in a mantisweight and i was able to remove the cells with no issue and reused the plastic casing as an adapter for charging
