Allow you to use a single 3.3 Lion cell to boost voltage to whatever you need. Found on eBay: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/LM2577-DC-DC-3-34V-4-35V-Digit-Step-Up-Adjustable-Power-Supply-Converter-Module-/131164010981?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&hash=item1e89fbf9e5 2.5A cap

I am going to get a couple and experiment, it would mean I could get away with a physically smaller battery but get a much higher voltage, a higher voltage means less current means less battery drain and also will give me a higher motor torque which would mean better slow speed running. Or am I wrong?
Probably not in the right place....
