I knew seeing packs with 40C on them would only be a matter of time.

now we're gonna see 45C batteries coming out! what a joke.

Thunderpower:

what are the dimmentions of this pack?

Who makes the cells?

How do you know these packs have a true 40C rating?

What method and equipment did you use to check their C rating?

Would you please post the numbers after a 35C discharge test? IR, Average voltage, etc

Just so you guys know. Thunder Power RC has been in the lipo game way longer than SMC. They have some of the best lipo batteries in the industry.

True, they have been around awhile. I think Thunder Power should answer some of these questions they just created. Danny from SMC has been nothing but upfront and honest about his cells. Time for the other companies to follow suit.

So what? ORION has been in the lipo game for a long time but for marketing reasons a couple of months ago they released the new 3800mAh 30C carbon completely misrated.Not even close to 3400mAh 20C.Why we should believe them?After all they're giving us only numbers.Numbers that maybe real or fake and you realise it after you have paid.40C? Not for me, thanks.Maybe in the future.

40c, too funny. There other packs are 30C at best. Were did these new 40c cells come from?? How come they dont have them in there biggest market, airplanes and helis ???????????????

Sorry guys, I wouldnt waste any more of my money on thunder power packs. I have lost over $1K in the past 3 years on there stuff.

They do have a first rate return policy though. If you have a problem with there stuff just send it in. They will take care of you.

Well considering he's only got 1 post, I wouldn't expect a reply anytime soon.
