Syssa Aircraft has one that reduces the voltage to the ignition down to 5.1v. The voltage to the receiver is not affected. I use 2300 mah A123 batteries. The IBEC eliminates several points of potential failure, the weight and expense of a separate battery pack, and the hassle of maintaining and charging 2 batteries.
Last I knew, Syssa was selling the Tech Aero IBEC.
