Sorry you don't like the kit price...Eh. I don't like high prices on hosts...
This is double what I used to pay.
This host is best used with a boost driver requiring on one cell. Your only other option that I can see is to get two 14500's and an AA spacer to use with the battery holder but they you are only taking advantage of the hosts heatsinking capability.What batteries i need to have 8.2V? (I mean Dual Batteries.)
Thats a good looking kit jay
Its hard to explain the time and effort thats involved in machining to someone whos never done it before... I've learned this from experience
It's also why I like your kits, very detail oriented and well put together and also very nicely machined
