I appoligize if this has been covered somewhere, but I did a quick search and didn't come up with anything.

With my SL9 I was given a LiPo battery pack that the previous owner had been using (how he was using it I don't know since all of his wiring was stock). However, I can't use it since I don't have a LiPo set up for charging, yet I know it is something I should probably get.

So, I am wondering if anyone has links or a step by step for explaining the differnet parts of a LiPo system and defining the slightly different termonology. I've seen the term "LiPo ready" and stuff, and know that you need 16g wire etc. and I am wired on the box for it, my main questions lie around charging, discharging, balancers, chargers, cells etc. and if/how they differ from traditional NiCad. Thanks!

Edit: I'm also wondering what considerations need to be made when running a MOSFET with a LiPo.

Lipo's are good and they will last longer than your NiCad's, all you have to do is take care of them. IE don't leave them sitting out in the open sun on concrete with a knife stuck in it.

My suggestion is just like Metal said, research.
But if you are looking for a lipo charger this is what I use.
