Protek packs are great but if you want to save a few bucks

Promatch sells a similar 2s 2300 lipo pack for half the price...

I am currently using the Protek 2300mah pack that you are using. So far it's has been great and I don't have any complaints. I also own one of the Promatch lipos that Teccmoney mentioned below. I believe they are the same battery pack just at a much cheaper price. So if you are going to buy the same battery again. I would just buy the Promatch pack and save yourself a few dollars.

Thanks for the replies. There don't seem to be too many choices out there for a lipo receiver stick pack. I don't really care for protek batteries but the other 3 protek packs that I had work great. I just was looking for something different. Daryl thanks for the link i went with a few promatch packs we will see how tey work. And James see you in AZ

Anyone now where you can find Life receiver packs with more than 1450 mAh? I would like to get at least two hours of run time before charging.

I'm running the Hyperion Life RX packs. They have worked great for me and I get excellent run times out of them.
