If you read the responses to those batteries there are few between good and bad. They either worked wonderfully or were dead on arrival with little chance of a return. One example - 6 ordered, one dead, and 2 more dieid within a minute of first use. They may be good batteries, but there seems to be any quality control at all for them.

Also read more into it, the dead ones most people popped the case open, bad solder joint. Just re-solder when you get them.

Another "Urban Legend."

Clearly, you have never looked at an actual discharge curve for a LiPo battery on something like a GFX that shows the actual voltage throughout the discharge cycle.

The reason they still have punch toward the end of the pack's runtime is because of the low resistance, not because the voltage doesn't decline.
