charge quicker: 4900
longer run time: 5400

I think these guys are arguing over the infamous "C" rating, which has to do with potential amp output. (I think)

The 5400 pack is the same MSRP as the 4900 pack.

Regarding C ratings...
Basically, you can run a hotter motor using the 4900 pack as it can handle up to 122.5A continuous current draw. The 5400 pack can only handle 86.4A continuous current draw. Either pack will be a great pack, but the 4900 pack will hold a higher voltage under heavy acceleration. Honestly, unless you really want the extra runtime, the 4900 is a better pack IMO.
