Hi, Was I am just about ready to go and get some Lipo 4S for my Ofna Started box

Came up with these two options, Just want to know if they are any good or should I be looking at something a bit better?
Is this also a good Monitor?
I know someone mentioned a Maxpro 4S lipo monitor, but I also found this one.

Any information on them is greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Tony, is that enough battery to last a whole race day without a charge? I was talking with lhs owner the other evening and he was telling me that I'd have to get 2 of them since I'm running 2 1500 nimh packs now. My understanding that lipo lasts longer then nimh but I could be wrong. Ma are ma and I know the 2 1500nimh packs were not getting me through a raceday. Maybe it's just the batteries are older.

As far as a starter box lipo goes are there really any to stay away from? Just looking around the net I found some called blue lipo at Hobbypartz, but never heard of them. I'm leaning towards the venom as it's a reputable brand but I'd like to know if the cheaper ones are just as good.

Cheap cells are just find and dandy...No need to pay the Big sticker price of a name brand pack.

15c 2000+mah lipo is fine for starter box, tight engine and all.

also you gotta still compare the C rating to the capacity to be more realistic about the discharge capabilities. aaaa-ight

Imo 20C is minimum for a starter box lipo.

I purchased a 3000mah 35c lipo for my starter box its makes a big difference when getting your motor going. I have only used mine a couple times do i havent put the endurace of how long it will alst to the test yet, but i wonder why i waited so long to put that lipo in my box.
Another guy at the track could not get his motor started ( was a cold day) and we put it on my box and fired right up.
