Light weight power for QRP

Some time ago I created a battery pack that used a 7.2Ah Sealed Lead Acid battery as its base. All is well with that power pack except its colossal weight. Weighing in at nearly 2.5Kg it’s a hell of a thing to but in your backpack. So I have invested in a Li-Po battery pack.

I have filmed a quick tour of the power pack ( link to the power pack is in the description of the clip) have a look. So far the pack has performed flawlessly and I cannot recommend it enough.
