Default Best source for Life batteries

I use to get all my Life battery needs filled by Richard at Wrong Way RC, but now that Wrong Way is no more where is a good source to get Life batteries ?

Got my last one from Horizon. Rather deal with smaller companies but the LiFe is not as easy to find as the LiPo.

I use to get my Life battery packs built by Richard at Wrong Way RC with two power leads and a balance tab as the battery powers both the Rx/servos and ignition systems. Do any of the current battery suppliers offer this type of service ?

I buy from ElectroDynamics Inc
Batteries come with two power leads. Also handy is they sell a combo charge cable that allows 2s balance charging with just one JR/Futaba 3 pin connector to the battery. One thing to plug in, and balance charge away!

He really was a great guy and someone who was always willing to assist in whatever way that he could. His sudden passing was quite a shocker as he was our go to guy for most anything battery related. I wonder what ever became of the stock he left behind.

Did you try Dave Thacker at Radical RC for A123/LithiumWerks LiFe cells and batteries? I normally get all my battery supplies from Dave. Here's the link https://www.radicalrc.com/

I have used them for decades. NEVER a problem with them or what they sell.
