Default turnigy hardcase 2s 5000mah 30-40c at hobbyking

the pics on hobbyking website make it look like the barrel connectors are 1 female and 1 male. is this correct or are they both male 5.5mm barrel connectors?

Not trying to bash really, but I have had two of these packs, and they both died.

My Hobby People - Pro Tek - Zippy Flightmax have worked great though.

I don't trust turnigy packs.

their hard packs are also bigger than typical hard packs so they don't fit in all of my cars which really sucks. I won't order them again just for that reason but otherwise I haven't had any problems with them

My two packs died after about 50 cycles. I know ~20 dead packs of turnigy hardcase 2s 5000mah 30-40c. So I would wait for new version.

They are heavy and bigger than typical 5000mAh packs. And I do not like such big wires...

I've got a few of them right now that I picked up on a batch sale. The connectors are strange, and they use 8awg wire, quite thick. I had to do a good amount of thinning to convert them all to Dean's plugs. They are a little large (required some adjustment to get them to fit well in my SC10) but not huge.

I had to adjust my battery hold down to accommodate the thickness, but I have 3 of those batteries and have been running them solid every weekend for the past 3 months. No problems at all, I also have 4 of their smaller 2S 5000mah 20-30c packs, that have been going strong since March/April 2010.

I have only had 2 lipos fail prematurely and they were both soft packs. 1 was a Turnigy 2S 5000mah and the other was a Tenergy or Thunder something with a T besides Turnigy.

Things happen but as long as you are not abusive, most batteries will treat you right. (Almost sounds like a counseling session)

I've been running the 4000mah 30-40c packs and they've performed great. The 4000mah are a little nice because they are lighter, and the wires come out from the top of the pack. I only use these packs for racing and only run about 1800mah from the pack in a 6 minute heat & 1-2 minutes of warm up.

The 5000mah look nice because of the extra run time, but the wires coming out from the front of the pack look like it will have some fitment issues in some cars/trucks

I guess I'll be the first one to answer your question.

It's 1 male and 1 female. This way you can't plug it in backwards.

took a while, it was a simple question and everyone started talking about the reliability.
