Thumbs down Losi battery 14.8 5000mah..... POS????

What type of run times r u guys getting. I'm only getting 8-9 mins max fresh off the charger. I'm running 16/50 in a 8t with manual brakes.

I run on a large track and my motor temps around 130.

I also run a 5250 maxamp pack and get 15mins minimum. So let me know if I have two 5000mah paper wieghts.

Thanks, Jay

Mine has one cell that doesn't always take a charge. When it does(I left it on the balancer for a LOOOOOONG time) I get full run time. When it doesn't, it tags the LVC early, and cuts run time way down. Are you balancing the pack every charge?

if any lipo gets very far out of balance a device like a blinky will not re-balance in the time it takes to recharge. these devices are good but do not replace a good balance charger. they are awesome maintance devices. it can take hours to balance a pack if one get far out of balance. I have seen it take 6 hours on a balance charger and longer with a small maintance devices though
