Looks like it too me to.

That is a good thing though as my Yeah packs are awsome!!

Now if they just get the price close to the Yeahs.

Correct,

It's like that for any type for product. Regardless of who's name is on it there are usually only a few true manufactures that make small changes (if any at all) for any given type of product. For instance, Plasma TV's--- there are hundreds of brand names but all of them come from 1 of 4 manufacturing facilities around the world.

I think it's great that he has stepped up and done this. There are a lot of people who are uncomfortable dealing with overseas companies. Now they can deal with someone in the US. Even though it may cost them a lil more I'm sure these people will be much happier with this option.

IMO the market is getting SATURATED with re-branded lipos. Theres probably at least five companies selling that diamond patterned 3800mAh, and I know I've seen this one somewhere before. The only angle I can see a company taking to sell these cookie cutter lipos is with cut-throat pricing. And at $60.00 clearly they didnt go that route. Other than that youre just paying for a different sticker on it.

On the subject of rebranded goods, what is the difference between an Electrifly Triton charger and Team Checkpoint's? Team Checkpoint's charger seems to be an identical charger as the Triton, but it's much more costly... The Triton 2 charger seems to blow TC's charger altogether...

At least two big differences:

1) Smaller delta peak threshholds - the Checkpoint goes down to 1mv per cell, the Triton only goes down to 3mv per cell and then ZeroPeak

2) The Checkpoint will do pulse discharging at 20 amps and 30 amps. The Triton is limited to 10 amps.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. Most are correct that the Yeah racing pack is similar, but I am told that the internals are slightly different. We have seen that the prices for the Yeah Racing packs are around $35-40 but you also have to pay for international shipping of $15-20 and the product support from overseas will be hard to deal with. We will totally stand behind our products and give you any support needed. We will be dropping the price to $45.00 wich would be about identical to buying one from overseas and you can trust the mailing system a little more here in the states These packs really have proven themselves during testing, try one out you will be surprised at how punchy they are..

thanks, Damon

Damon , if you can get them to 45 shipped that would be in the ball park. They run 39.95 SHIPPED through R/C marts ebay store, Dinball.PLUS they give a discount on shipping for multiple item orders so I got 6 of the yeah packs for $230.00 shipped.and all of the yeah packs and all have performed equall or better than orions 3200 packs.

For 45 $ shipped i'v got a 4300 mah lipo, not harcased, but battery tray act as a nice enclosure.



Who care about the brand, the most important is ratio performance/price if it's good then go for it.
