How many lipos do you have?!

Hello,

Recently I checked all my lipo bags and was shocked how many they are.
I have the theory, that RC-addiction can be measured in the amount of batteries somebody has.

So....
How many Lipo batteries do you have? 1s,2s,3s,4s...etc


I think a lot of people are really intersted to see how many lipos the average RC/Flitetest fan-dude has.
If you are substandard you can justify your next lipo purchase to your wife.


STATISTICS Dec.14 2016 ==========================================================

So here are some statistics.

ViperTech is the LIPO-King with 76 batteries.

  • It's hard for me to say how much "kacknor" has.
  • We have 288 lipos so far total.
  • The average Flite-Test, fan-dude-pilot-forum-guy has 29 lipos.
  • The most used size is 3s, followed by 1s.
  • That means the trend goes towards microquads or super light planes.
  • Surprisingly 4s is being less important than I expected.

Hello,

Based on your theory I am irrevocably doomed to enjoy this for about a lifetime. ;)

That's not even all of them! Most...

Full disclosure: The 6 2200's on the floor are good and fairly puffed from my overly aggressive sticks in a Durafly Tundra. 40c just don't hack it with that thing. They are destined to become a 6s equivalent 13,000 mAh low amperage portable field recharging station.

Very cool. Guys please give more comments and information. I will make a chart.

So now I know there are people with more stuff than me. Can't wait to show my wife your collection.
I have 45 batteries of variable power from 4C to single.

Okay, I have:

3 1300 MilAmp 3 cell
2 2200 MilAmp 3 cell
2 3200 MilAmp 3 cell

I definitely need to get on the ball with this one

7 2200mah 3s (one 35c, six 25c)
2 6600mah 4s 70c (the cheese bricks, cause they're orange in color)
1 1500mah 3s 20c
Enough hubsan x4 1s lipos to burn down the neighborhood
So about 20 in all

No but if I lay them all out and snap a picture and she see's them it will be whats all that? and HOW MUCH WAS IT? Do you really need any more plane stuff? I think you have enough! All you have is plane on the brain! AND Who needs that? NOT me!

"Plane on the brain!" lol

I am very fortunate to be a bit older, have no kids around and live with somebody who enjoys that I have a hobby to keep me out of her hair now and again. ;)

When I first started, I chose to charge at home, and simply carry enough batteries to the field to cover the day's activities, so I have quite a few. I am currently rethinking that choice, and have two chargers, one in the field box. I still carry too many and don't charge much save ALES events. the 12v deep cycle is very heavy. But I only have a limited supply of those 70c 1800's to go round. ;)

ok ok got you!

Thank you for all your replies.
If we get at least 3 more people who share their lipo tresure we can make a vague conclusion.

gogogo! :)
