They work well but the thin case can easily crack and they all puff a little bit from normal use which SMC says is just fine.

Well I will just have to take care of it so the case doesn't crack.

I have not heard of a LIPO puffing and that being fine. If that's what they are saying I would chose another option

How have you not cracked the cases?!?!

Turnigy cases same as most, very smiliar to the Orion.

Flex's instead of cracking a little better.

fit in the centro was pretty tight, the X brace kind of smooshed them, cracked at the seam.

Never cracked a Turnigy or an SMC. But I always put clear shrink wrap on all my batteries to keep the labels looking new.

I never understoody why people do this, it offers no advantage and adds precious weight

I was thinking this was a pretty good idea. Weight would be negligible.

Easy solution

adjust the black standoffs by raising them 1 to 2m depending on the battery brand.
