Default Premium Power LI-PO 7.4Volt

I was wondering if any one had any feedback on these Premium POWER 7.4volt 20C Packs, i was looking at getting the 3300mah or the 4700mah

how do the perform in stock class, do they have good voltage and punch?

Feral batteries in Australia also sell the 4700mah at the moment.. I'm also waiting on some feed back for these.

Lipos will give you the same punch and voltage. The only differance you realy pay for in price is the amount of current they can handle.

Super low prices, AND it fits in normal 6cell spots? Someone, please try one!

dang that is a screaming deal. Thats half the price of the MAxamp packs with the same numbers. Is it Bull$hit? Who knows until someone coughs up $55 to try it.

I do know something though, I bought a 3500mah 2s1p 7.4v 10-20c li-po on ebay for $32 and it didn't have the juice to push my stock 4wd sedan around the track very fast. It wasn't just a junk pack because I bought 2 and they both did the same!

The price makes me skeptical, what if these are junk too? then again, what if they are the best deal ever?

RC Mushroom usually sells pretty good stuff, for the price I wouldn't hesitate to try some.

So far so good. First charge accepted just over 2000mah (i'll assume there was some charge stored before it was shipped) Running a well maintained XXX-SG+ and CO27 with a very free drive train I managed just over 22 minutes (1320sec) with NO fade. Only reason i stopped is i had not set the 6.4v cut off on my ECS so i did'nt want to risk over discharging. So my initial opinion.. GREAT! i'll give it a few more runs and if it keeps up i will buy another for sure.

I've done testing with a couple of these - Premium Power packs and they seem very good to me. Didn't keep using them after the tests because they aren't legal for racing where I race.

They look like Maxamps packs...any numbers on them? Dont want to say that too loud, turbo joe might come in here and start flapping his gums. Someone said they fit in 6 cell spots? I ask this because my Maxamps 6000 is a little too big for my Pro3. A gnats hair too long and a mouse whisker too wide. Thanks fellas.
