Default ICU-L ignition battery

I bought an 1100 mAh 2-cell A123 battery to use on my ICU-L ignition powering an Evolution 58gx2, but after some reading about the A123s I learned it's pretty common for them to drop to 6.4V-6.5V and then maintain that voltage until they drop off. Since the ICU-L has a cutoff at 6.5V I'm not really comfortable toeing that line, so I'm going to get a 2-cell lipo. I don't know a ton about lipo batteries, but I'm thinking even the lowest discharge rating (15C) would be sufficient for this purpose. Is that correct?

These ignitions are designed for 2S LiPo, so go for it. 3S A123 would also work.

I can only confirm, or you must switch-off battery test.
