I do have some questions for these packs.

1. 35C in 5200mAh = 182A discharge rate. I don't think there is anyone here who owns an equipment to test if the 35C discharge rate is ture.

2. I would like to find out the dimension of this 35C pack, in my opinion, it is almost impossible to make a 5200mAh 35C pack withinin the ROAR standard.

3. I got my SMC 5000 about 5 months ago and it still runs like a new pack after at least 300 charging and discharging cycles. It will takes me another 5 months to figure out the performance of this pack.

4. EP makes only Nimh cells, where do they buy these cells from?

I wonder who made a new account just to ask these questions

As for the case, the plugs to me look a little further inset as compared to the Orion and Trakpower. Might make it difficult for those that put the plug to the inside of the top deck. Hard to tell though.

Does this mean the current Trinity packs are going away?

RC Market are you saying you'll have these EP LiPo packs in stock at the end of this month?

John I gotta agree, they've only just announced the product we're virtually halfway through the month already.

Or8ital I don't think the IB LiPo's currently being offered by Trinity will be affected, pretty much the same way they distribute the IB & EP NIMH packs/cells currently.
