    As it says in the title I'm looking for a mosfet I can run a 4S lipo on. I saw that the Nukefet is rated for 12.8v max so I'd assume I can't use that but does any one know one that will work. I've heard that the Tactical Nukefet will work fine but I wanted those if there were other options.

    A DIY mosfet unit based on the IRLB3034 chip can handle up to 40V, this is limited to a lower voltage if you use an external TVS diode with a lower voltage rating.

    Bruh...i have no idea what that means. I don't mind just buying a complete mosfet but id just like to buy the right one.

    Just look up zardichar on here, he sells them for a good price.

    He uses a 4s with it.

    What is that? I've never heard of that.

    It's a computerized mosfet unit that replaces the entire trigger switch. It costs approximately $100, a waste of money if you only want to preserve the trigger contacts. A Zardichar mosfet unit, as suggested above will get the job done very well, at a much lower price.

    ^ true, but for a lot of people it is worth it with all the features, like precock, burst, cycle completion, low battery detection, 540amp max, 18v max, digital fuse and all the other goodies. O yeah, it also shortens trigger pull a good bit
