Default LiPoly's Versus LiIon's - What's the Story

What's the big advantage to using LiPoly's over LiIon's? If there is a big advantage, does it outway the additional hazards?

Thanks

There really isn't any "versus" to it. Virtually NO development work has been done on LiIon cells since LiPolys came on the scene. LiPolys are cheaper to produce and generally the safer technology. LiPolys are capable of much higher discharge rates, and are much more suitable for our purposes in R/C.

What about Konions? 12C discharge, vented cans, and only 11 bucks apiece.
