Few questions:

Are the checkpoint 5400 packs the same as the trakpower?

Any estimate on when we will see the new trakpower packs in stock at the common places?

They are made by Trakpower. In the real fine print on the box it lets you know but man is it small. Alot of shops around are area have the new stuff from them so keep looking as more places will be getting them soon.

I'm really liking my Trackpower 4900's. They fit awesome in my TC5. I've also developed a great mount that makes this a clean, slick looking combination that is absolutely bulletproof.

Heres my silver trakPower

A little nail polish remover, and some elbow grease, and you get silver

Trakpower told me they have these batteries in stock...however, they will not sell to an individual and could not tell me who has them already.

Does anyone know who has them that I can order one in the next day or two?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Verndog,

I'm looking for the 5400 specifically. As I understand it the 4900 will be hit or miss on whether you get a 20C or new 25C depending on how old your vendors stock is.

Actually I read they just changed the label, and in fact they are all rated to 25C. Both the ones I just picked up said 25C, and they're about a month old.
