Normal solder intended for electrical soldering won't work on aluminum. So if you wish to solder aluminum, you need a special solder, such as the Solder-It Aluminum Solder Paste.

Lipo batteries often have aluminum tabs, so if you want to solder to lipo tabs, that's one possible use for the Solder-It product.
