Default Lipo batteries and regulators

Who makes the best quality lipo batteries and regulators?

I've noticed that on my Protek battery and regulator, the wires seem really thin compared to others. The wire came off on the regulator this past weekend.

I am interested in quality made lipo's and regulator.

Thanks for any info.

Thats the real Q? Almost went that route.
The added weight of the 5 cell is welcome for balancing I would guess.?
And that new one thats out like 2600 MAH or some thing like that is plenty of run time and a little more balancing weight.

If it weren't for the regulator it would be more appealing cause its just one more thing to plug and go wrong.

I think.

I had the Protek regulator mounted on top of the box. No problems until last weekend when one of the wires came off the soldering tab.

Then I installed a losi regulator. It is much thinner and has thicker wires. It easily fits inside the box with no problems.

Now I just need to find good quality assembled Lipo pack. Are HT Batteries or Thunderpower the best in quality?
