Very good for the price. As good as many more expensive packs I have used.

Shipping is not bad. About a week to me here in Washington State. I have had mostly good luck with these packs. I also run their 1p4s 30c 5000mah. They are my best packs by far and get same runtimes as my buddies $200.00 plus spendy batteries.

Yup, I plan on getting more of the 30c 4000 mah hardcases.

So far they seem to be as fast as the expensive stuff and actually a bit more durable. (ahem, SMC, Maxy Amps) But my cars are only 17.5 and 13.5 right now.

Balence perfect everytime.

I use these in different 1/10 setups (B4, T4, TC3) and they're fine. They came with Deans installed and stay balanced well. Might try the 30C someday but these work well.

Hobbycity has great packs! My buddy got this one however for his zx5 and said he was not impressed. Not a ton of punch. Just decent. And he had to make a set of bullet plugs for it since it didnt have any. I ordered the 5200 2s2p and love it!. Dont hesitate to buy from them. Word of adice. Pay the extra for the ems shipping. You will get it in 3-5 days. And dont forget to order your wire,heatshrink and what ever else you need. That stuff is ridiculously cheap and can help fill the weight of the order.

I just bought 2 packs of the 5700 saddles. I went with the low cost shipping and got them in under 2 weeks.

I just put a set of Turnigy packs(they say there the same as zippys) in my 1/8 scale and works great. I also have 2 more packs for a slash my son races and never had one problem. My high dollar packs never get used my Turnigys beat them in all areas. The only reason I dont sell the other packs is they are ROAR approved hard case packs and I may need them for some events I plan to race!!!

I run the flightmax 1600mah 2s1p 20C lipo in my 18T and it feels like I could run it all day before the voltage gets to low to run. I have recharged both packs I have maybe 2 or 3 times even though I didn't really need to. Great packs in my opinion especially for the price

They offer 30C 5200 HardCase Turnigy packs for the same price. I've had nothing but good luck with the Turnigy branded stuff. I also bought 2 of those 5700 saddle packs and they work great.
