Pffffft. 7.6V LiPOs? Bunch a crap. I can charge any old LiPO to 8.7V if I purposely unbalance the cells and put it on a balance charge. Heck, I could even do that with a NiMH pack. A long time ago, professional ROAR racers used to charge their NiCD cells before assembling the pack to a higher voltage than they were rated for. No guarantee it'd be safe, but thats what I'm worried about. I bet you that this LRP 8.7V crap is just an overcharged standard LiPO pack and will explode eventually and cause lots of problems. So, if you see these batteries, DO NOT buy them. LiPOs are not good things to overcharge.
