...on order. Get them while they're hot. All the Turningy stuff that I've bought has been very good.

I have seen that Zippy before, but it is listed as a 2S2P where the Turnigy is listed as a 2S1P. Also, the dimensions are slightly different.

Funny that the 2s2p is lighter than the 2s1p.

I havent used any Zippy only Turnigy but guys I know who used both say that Turnigy cells are a bit heavier then other brands with the same compasity but on another note their built quality seems to be better than Zippy. I do not know this for fact just what I heard 2-3 times.

I have some Zippy Flightmax, Zippy Rhino, and Turnigy batts. It seems to me the Turnigy is a bit better materials than the Flightmax, but the Rhino is way better than both. Unfortunately the Rhino packs come in oddball sizes that dont fit too many cars.
