2s lipos will last just as long as 3s lipos if they are rated the same. These will last you about 25-30 min in a revo bl.....

i bash a lot and i want to have a lot of runs and cycles with my these batteries, but max amps 2s lipos will make it through 250-300 cycles and i think that it is kind of a waste do you guys recommend anything else?

They are made by Enerland, one of the best lipo cell manufacturers out there. They are top quality and priced accordingly.

I'm using Promatch lipos in my Erevo. They are the 5000Mah ones, You can get them for something like $69 a piece with free shipping on 2 or more. They will even solder a connector on few a few $$ more. They may not be as cheap as the ones you can get from overseas, but if you ever have a problem with them promatch will stand behind you 100%.

wrong. if they are both the same capacity, bumping up the voltage gives you more stored voltage. look at hobbycity.com. they have some nice 3s 5000's you could run for 6s. just turn the power down and it will last around 40-50 mins.

i think the BEST thing to do is to grab the 4s 4400mah lipo's off hobby city.......8800mah 4s. they fit tight, but fit...and they'll, BY FAR, give you the longest runtime for the money. you could buy some 12000mah 2s's thoguh

if they fit... 6s 5000 equals 4s 8000 so your not gaining much
