Default Good Deal on Lipo Starter Box Battery?

Hey guys, am I missing something or is this a killer deal? 29.99 and free shipping. Granted, I have never heard of the brand before, but it might be worth trying. Input welcome!

I wouldnt reccomment it. I got one off ebay hongkong with 15C, it doesn't give a lot of 'punch' on the starterbox (truggybox ofna, dual motor). Compared with 2 x 3800 mah Orion lipo 30C the difference is huge. I really believe the quality is poor, but at that price what could you expect?

When something seems too good to be true, it probably is...

Thanks for the feedback guys. I will keep my eyes open for a good deal. I have been doing OK with gel cell and would rather get a new set of tires or something instead of a battery - unless it's a great deal! Thanks!
