Default Saddle Pack configurations

Looking to pick up some Saddle Packs for a 1/10 4WD Buggy and have seen where the individual packs are labeled as 1S2P and 1S3P. Is there any benefit of one over the other will the numbers being the same?

1S2P in series would be 4 cells
1S3P in series is 6 cells....
the p is the number of cells in the pack

Voltage wise there is no difference, and assuming that the cells are of equal quality there is no performance difference. 1s3p has 3 cells wired in parallel to get the capacity listed, whereas a 1s2p has 2 cells wired in parallel. With that in mind, a 1s2p will have 1 less connection in it, and should be lighter as well. It's often cheaper for a 1s3p though as the lower capacity single cells they use to create the packs generally cost less than the latest technology does.
