Yep. That's why I usually do some browsing before I place any orders from there.Just look around a bit before you order.I have found some pretty cool stuff there by doing so.Like a sensored 13.5 for 15.00. You cant beat that with a broken stick!

I received my 4 packs today. All the cells were 8.6-8.8 volts (using my cheap voltmeter). Nice packs. Only gripe is the retarded 8awg main leads they used. Plain annoying. For around $30 a pack shipped I'll deal with it.

i ordered 4 of those packs for my "new" flux. my zippy 5000mah 25c 3s lipos don't really heat up too much in my flux, so these shouldn't break a sweat. i am a little frustrated that these packs come with python wires coming out of them, but i think my 80watt soldering iron should be up to the task. its going to be a challenge getting those wires on deans plugs. i had a hard enough time with my 4s turnigy 20c lipo with 10awg wires.

The "S" is the number of cells wired in series and this is what determines teh voltage since in series, voltage adds. One lipo cell is 3.7v nominal, 2S is 2 x 3.7 or 7.4v nominal, etc.

The "P" is teh number of cells in parallel, so a 2S2P has a total of 4 cells - there are two sets of two cells are wired in series, then these are wired in parallel. Parallel doesn't change voltage, but increase capacity which is the reason its usually done. If you wire two 2S 5000mah lipos as a 2S2P, you'd have 7.4v nominal with a capacity of 10,000mah.

When there are no cells in parallel, the P is usually not listed. Several years ago it was listed so you'd see 2S1P which is the same thing as 2S which is what you see today.

Somewhat like lipo's burst C rating, you don't see than a lot anymore either.

I know what you mean about the 8awg wire and the Deans plug. I screwed up two "Deans" plugs when soldering them to my 4 packs. Luckily they are the Deans knockoffs so they only cost about 50 cents each.

I'm pretty good at soldering but this 8awg wire was just plain annoying. For anyone reading this, make sure you have a quality iron when dealing with these packs.

The Turnigy 5200 packs are a good amount cheaper than the Zippys.

ya those wires are some big mothers for sure!!!!, what they dont realize is we all dont use thier factory plugs, but that must be a sales trick to sell ya thier plugs I had to trim some wire down to fit the deans other than that if they keep making those bats at these prices itll get more folks into lipos...I run with a guy thats got some turnigys and he has no complaints seen it with my own 2 eyes

I have my set for my savage Flux XL.

The 8ga wire is definitely beefy. Wasnt all that hard to solder deans connectors to them, especially because the wire absorbs soo much heat you can hold them with your bare hands while you solder.

The only problem that I came across is where to find heat shrink to fit over them lol.

Lots of punch.

4s with these batteries gets my Extended savage flux to do standing backflips
