It depends on specific pack and what you mean by "better" better for what?

It is lighter. Is that better?

In terms of volatge A 6 cell NimH pack is 7.2 and a 2S Li-Po is 7.4.  The NimH pack will have it best power right away and that will then drop the rest of the way through the discharge. Now a Li-Po will hold that voltage basically giving you the same power from the start all the way to the end. Now capacity between the two is a lot different. Li-Po's are able to offer you so much more in capacity size. And yes weight is a big factor as well. Our 2s2P 6500 pack is lighter than a 6 cell NimH pack. That's a Li-Po that will run most 1/10 th scale cars for around 45 minutes.
