Lipo Battery Packs

    Hi All

    Has anyone thought about hacking apart one of the normal Lego battery boxes & making up a chunky Lipo backed box? Possibly with a 3D Printed enclosure?

    I've been looking at the 3S 11.1V LIPO packs, as these can go upto 6000mAh as far as I can tell. I know from research that you can feed in nearly 12V into PF motors, so I'm figuring 11.1V will be fine.

    I know that I'll need to figure in some under/over voltage protection, as well as charging - but before I re-invent the wheel, has anyone else done anything similar?

    Cheers!

    Alex.
