Cheep in price, high in quility. Ran Dirt Oval Mod Sprint last night w/sp 5.5 and Yeah racing 3200s. It was one of the fastest on the track out of 19 sprints. Still had plenty of run time and punch after 4min.

Also charged at 3.2amp on a Core-Rc Charger.

It says that for the first 8-10 charges, they should be charged at 0.5C...after that 1C normal charge...


Is this real??? Or should I just stick with the 1C charge rate.... as any other Lipo??

Thanks!!!

As much as I hate trinity, I would take them anyday over a Yeah Racing.

I have a couple of the Trinity LiPro 4500s and they will cut out with a heavy load. Only good for stock.

How often are you balancing them? I just received mine and have not even taken them out of the box at this point. I also ordered a 10" extender for the Core UDC-20 as the cable supplied does not have the jst xh end for 2S balancing. I can plug the battery directly into the balancing port on the charger if I have to as they match.

I am balancing them around every 10th charge cycle. The furthest I have seen 1 of them out of balance is 3/10 of a volt.some companies are saying that balancing is only needed as a maintenance measure on a 2s 7.4v.From what I have seen on these el cheapo packs I am a firm beleiver in that.
