I would stay away from those and get one of these

Whenever they get back in stock, these are great batteries.

I have 2 of them, ordered a few weeks a part from each other.

This was after I ordered some WinForce Akku LiPo's from a similar eBay seller. I ordered 4 of these - keeping 1 for myself.

All 6 of the packs look identical, aside from the labeling.

All 6 packs charged and balanced quickly and easily (even first cycle).

I still have one of the WinForce Akku packs. I sold it to a buddy about 6 months ago, then bought it back from him within the last month.

Both this older pack and the new DragonRed packs perform flawlessly. Plenty of power and run time.

I paid $43.00 shipped for each (yes - $20.00 shipping). Longest shipping time from Hong Kong was 13 days. Shortest was 8 days.

I've raced since the late 80's and gone through the different technologies of batteries available to race with. I was a "fast guy" at one time (1/10th scale 2WD buggy and truck - up until the year 2000). After having gotten back into racing about a year ago, I find myself racing some of my old buddies. One of which is the fast guy to beat in eBuggy and is sponsored by MaxAmps.

At this time, I do not feel at any disadvantage using these batteries when racing against him.

Until I feel like my batteries are keeping me from getting any faster, I'll buy $43.00 DragonRed or WinForce Akku's packs every time vs. the more expensive packs. I run these in my Hot Bodies D8 Tekno V4 electric conversion. All 3 packs are 4S 5000mAh, 30C.



PM if you have any further questions.

Jim

Just make sure you get some with enough punch. My friend decided to go cheapo on the dragon packs over 1yr ago and ended up with a failed esc. He got 2 packs the LCOG ones the ones that are like 4000mah 15c 2s. They didnt last in his boat long :L
