Default Team Orion 3800 Lipo or Team Trinity 3800 Lipo?

Has anybody compared or tried these batts. yet? Just wondering what to get
for my new 10.5 Brushless motor. I know Orion is rated at 30C and Trinity is
at 25C. Tough call here!

Nor myself used these 2 3800, but i could made an opinion then await more people replies.
I am not sure but seems the Orion's Lipo was made by Kokam, then could be a guarantee of quality, safety and reliability.
Instead of this, 30C theorically should have better performance than 25C in Spec race, if i am not wrong.
Trinity's Lipo is made by Intellect, the company which invented "BOOM BOOM" NIMH, then is this clear?

Which in turn gave a quicker rise to LiPo. I've used the Orion and SMC LiPo's so far, and the SMC is better than the Orion, but if an SMC was not available, I would choose an Orion LiPo anyday.

I've been running the Trinity for a while now and it is by far the fastest thing I have ever strapped in my car.
Also I have heard of no safety problems with the trinity lipo. Contrary to what people would like you to think.

I just got one of the Orion 3800 30C packs and will try it out in the next few weeks. I wanted to see if there is any real advantage to this 30C rating or if its just marketing.

Josh...does the Trinity pack have the bumps on the bottom to hold the pack in the chassis like the Orion packs do?

Orion 30C 3800mAh VS Intellect IP 25C 3800mAh ( OEM Trinity )
Orion 30C lightweight than IP 25C
Orion Kokam can by Air to ship,
IP can't approve by Air to ship .

If use IP 25C hard case in Cyclone TC need remove battery holder ,
because this case not fit some car kit .

but price had cheaper & Free Shipping !

Thanks for all your help guys! I'm leaning towards Team Orion 3800 Lipo.
Just can't seem to find them anywhere in stock. Any suggestions where
to get them would be deeply appreciated!

I have had the Intellect 3800 for sale since their release in early June. So far have sold over 100 of these packs to rave reviews from the racers. Top performers and no reliability issues to date .. and priced very well

Mmmmmm .. I see Australian pricing is far better than the USA
