Well after a long time i have done something new ......again best out of waste....ahaaaa..not waste...but used in different way..
I have converted a old laptop batter pack to a conventional pack which can be charged externally using our conventionl LiPo charger. the capacity of this 11.1 V packis around 4.1Ah.... 11.1 v out put is Dean connector only but i am not getting place to use it as it is quiet heavy.....
Here is the pic...not too clean build but still...........

I dont know about the IBM pack but DELL battery packs actually have 6 AA sized batteries in them. (thats it!) It can be removed and used as normal batteries Smiley Several videos about the same on YouTube.

Most of the Battery pack which have a configuration of 6 cell and 9 cell pack. they have a common connection diagram
2 cell are connected in parallel for more Ah capacity and three sets of parallel in series making at at 11.1 volt pack
my IBM pack have 3.7 volt Li-ion 2.2 Ah cell when connecyed inparallel it becomes 4.4 Ah and when three sets in parallel it comes to standard 11.1 Volt configuration. rest charging balancer connector will remain same as normal Li-po packs.

Information sharing improves knowledge of both.



They are sold in Electronics spare Shops. 

Just ask for 0.1" spaced 3 or 4 terminal (FOR 2S OR 3S) connector. or keep any connector  to show in shop.

Laptop battery C rating to be checked so as to match the discharge current. Then only you can use as flight pack. Else you can use as Tx/Rx pack where C capacity required, is not so high. Generally old laptops are with NiMH/Li-ion cells of no use as flight pack.

Good Luck.

I too have the same and i charge it with my balanced charger .... since it is Li-ion and heavy i use it to test my planes and tx system on ground rather than the normal lipo.

or i have used 7.4V in a toy remote car..... or u can buy a 11.1Volt to USB converter ( available on HK) and use it to charge your mobile, MP3 etc. etc....

i bought them in bulk (import) to save cost. so i m sharing it with u all.  i have charger also for these by USB.

Re:

The USB charger is balance charger?
And those delivering 2600mah?
Or practical value is different?
