Default Questions about battery?

Hey guys:

I'm currently using the stock Losi Sport 7.2V 1100 Ni-MH battery and the run-time has been poor on my brushless motor. Usually, it's about 5 minutes and I was just wondering how would I increase the run-time? I'm getting a free Li-Po battery from Losi and I was just wondering if that would increase the run-time.... Do you guys have any recommendation for batteries in terms of type, brand or capacity? Also, is it safe to get it off ebay?? Do you guys know which battery would at lease give me about 20-30 minutes of run-time. I heard that Li-Po batteries are good.

yeah you will get more runtime but try to go back to your recent threads to ask more questions instead of making a bunch of threads.
