Where did you order them from?

On trakpowers site it says there 25C now, so all the new ones I belive have been shipped out, but I forget what the guy said to me..... Maybe you will get the 25C's

From A Main Hobbies.I asked them first if they have 20C or 25C and they told me that they was not aware of any new packs 25C so they sent me those
20C.In fact on trakpower.com they are talking about the new 25C packs.I asked them too and they told me that the newest ones are 25C but the 20C version gives more power than i can possibly lay down on the road.Who knows... We'll see.

I called TrakPower and they told me the new ones were shipping iirc..... So IDK

Either way, the 20C packs are better then the orions!!!!

Will the "C" rating be listed on the pack?

I ordered two a couple of days ago from Tower Hobbies and I wonder if I will be able to tell whether they are the 20C or 25C packs.

You mean the part where they start to degrade at 40 cycles about the same as the Orions do at 1500 cycles? Trakpower can keep their lousy Enerland cells. If I wanted that kind of cycle life, I'd get NiMH.

Ouch... I just bought two!

I also bought one Core 5000 mAh LiPo.

Now I don't know if I should return the two Trakpower packs and just get another Core pack or what...

I've got around 40 cycles or more on mine and it's still running as good as new

It's been mentioned by linger and a few others that the cycle life on Enerland cells is pretty craptastic. Here's one post where it's mentioned, including a link to a lot of charts to back it up. I haven't tested personally, but it would get rather expensive to test every single cell myself, so I'll have to rely on trusted outside sources that have done the testing. I'm sure the cells seem great, 'cause their LiPo and they all seem great. But saying they're "better" than Kokam is, well, pretty silly. Even Trakpower said they're good for what, 100 cycles? I'd just buy some cheaper Chinese LiPo with that kind of weak showing.
