Default TrustFire, UltraFire, et al.

Just a suggestion to the overseas marketers of LiPo batteries: having the word "fire" anywhere in the name of a LiPo product is NOT a good idea. :-)

Haha, never really thought about it that way

"Let's write word Fire on a battery with font 256. It's a market killer!"

Not sure why all the crazy fetish-like obsession with "____Fire" brands.

There's only so many ideas they'll run out of before retorting to YourAssOnFire, InstantFire, DangerFire, KillerFire, IHopeYouLikeFire and TranslatorErrorFire.

The other one that I find funny is Gens Ace (RC Car Batteries) has a picture of flames on all of their LiPos.

The fetish with xxxxfire was due to flashlights that were clones of Surefire lights.

Most of the "clone" battery cells I have tested, were of poor quality and limited durability.

Look for a "name brand" that has been tested to U.L. 1642 standards for reliability.

Of course there is "Fire! Fire!" from Beavis. How about that reference? :-)

Beavis and Butthead: FIRE FIRE FIRE!

Maybe "In Flames" would be more appropriate?

I agree ...But i don't think High Discharge Li-Polymer cells are
going pacify nervous politicians or any rating aside from a Roars sticker...
