I now have 4 of the batteries the OP mentioned. I got my first 2 in October and have run them regularly in my Slash since then with no issues and great performance. I got 2 more about a month ago for my Blitz with the same positive results. These batteries are a great value.

I got a pack of turnigy's that was WAY out of balance brand new. I'm trying to get it back in balance and then see how it does. Still seems to perform OK, but I'm worried about life and durability. Otherwise mine have been great over the few cycles I have done. The price is great. Shipping took mine forever and even at the cheap rate it was pretty darn expensive (3 4S batteries and two chargers was over $50 shipping) Even with the expensive ship, it was a good deal and if I can get the voltage up on my one low cell, I think I'll be very happy with the transaction.

I just received 2 of these on Tuesday from HobbyKing that I ordered last Thursday...

I was only $5 extra for the EMS shipping if I kept my order under 1kg. I was able to add a 2s1p 2650mAh 40C Zippy to my order to max out the 1kg limit.

I have no basis for comparison because I'm new to the electric arena but they kick butt. I ordered them for my Strike I got last week which I put a couple old NiCad starter box packs through and wasn't impressed. Today I headed to the track with the 3 packs and ran it hard for almost 2 hours! I'm thinking about making a permanent change from Nitro to electric seeing how well these pack perform and how inexpensive they are. I would not hesitate one minute ordering from HK and honestly, $26 shipping for something that got here so quickly isn't that bad.

I bought two Flightmax 5200 30C packs about a month ago and they run better then my Reedy , Orion , and Trinity lipos . Always stay balanced and never any problems .
