    I'm looking for compact sized, Light weight battery, Mostly I can find is the 3.7V
    I'm looking for something which is less than 35grams with 5 or 6V

    Any suggestion? Below is the one I found which is nice but again it's 3.7V

    I don't think this should have been in General DIscussion... do you have a P1 or what?

    I have a P4, Why it should not be in General Discussion ? Any specific reason if you don't mind I'm asking

    Admin/Mods - Please move it if it's in wrong section

    Thanks

    I just thought if you put it into a specific category (P4, P3, P2, or P1 discussion) it would be more clear what you were asking.

    Also, do you have a battery mod? How are you planning to use a regular LiPo on a P4?

    Owh sorry for the Misunderstanding, I'm looking for the Li-Po for the Payload release mechanism for the P4 I'm working on, The servo takes 4.8-6V, I went by few local shops and all the battery size is big and heavy, So just wondering if anyone have any suggestion or specific battery that I can get which can provide 4.8-6V and lightweight

    My limited understanding is that Lipos by definition have/had a nominal charge of 3.7 volts per cell. Advanced technology managed to bump up the P3 batteries to a nominal charge of 3.8 volts per cell. Hence, a P2V battery with 3S is 11.1 volts, and a P3 battery with 4S is 15.2 volts.

    So there's your problem with lipos.

    Maybe if you told us exactly what you're trying to do we could be more helpful...

    Edit: For example...

    HobbyKing™ Micro UBEC 3A / 5v
