Cool Bad Batteries

My friend just showed me this website that sells batteries for incredibly cheap... The website was called hobbyking.com, and I believe they even have a ad on this website rctech.com.....

Anyway I was wondering if anything was bad about it from someone who have bought a battery from there.
thx

+1 This question is asked every day at least once if not more. They are the best bang for the buck lipos out there. Do not hesitate to use them.

I have use lots in the past 2 years. They have been awesome and if you do have a problem with a pack. They are so cheap that you can almost buy 3 hobby king batteries to another "Higher Priced" battery.

Default difference

Is there a big difference in performance with the nano tech batteries than others? Because they do seem they are more expensive, but i don't want to guess.

The NanoTechs are HobbyKings 'premium' lipo, they are supposed to be better than their other 'brands'. I haven't tried them yet, but have read plenty of feedback on them and they seem to be well worth the extra money.

The nanotech batteries are awesome, but come in weird sizes, what i mean is they are longer than most. I have personally owned 2x 2s 6000mah, and 2x 3s 5000mah nanotechs, which I ran in the savage flux. They worked perfectly, they were nice and cool, you never would feel the voltage drop.

I've used soft case 4S Zippy lipos before in my RC8BE without any problems.
