    Anybody tried to home build better, or at least cheaper (with same or similar capacity) batteries using the casing from dead or swollen batteries?

    You can buy common LiPo or LiHV batteries and use the battery adapters sold on eBay. Search Q500 battery conversion adapter.
    Or search Typhoon H battery conversion adapter.
    Easy to use adapters that let you use low cost common batteries.
    With the standard batteries you will need to buy a $25 universal LiPo charger.
    The good part about using a regular LiPo charger, is you can now use the universal charger to discharge your batteries to storage voltage levels and increase the life of your batteries.
    The main reason the factory batteries fail is the batteries are stored with a full charge and the stock chargers do not have a storage voltage mode to help you save your batteries.
