The lower capacity packs are basically the cells that don't meet the capacity specs to be a 5200. The IR and voltage of these cells is as good as the 5200s and this is why we offer them at a lower price for those who don't care to run an extra 1 minute and want a good pack.

Do you mean inboard connectors ? At the moment we have no plans on releasing a 5200/40C with inboard connectors.

Are the 5200 40C packs the exact same height as the old 5000 28C red packs? Those were a pretty close fit.

the new efra packs:
can you run them either side up and the plugs work? ( battery nubs up in a tray or battery nubs down no tray)

As far as I can tell...sometimes they are a little shorter, sometimes exactly the same (some have a tighter seam than others). Also, the cases tend to be a little taller on the corner that has the power wires.

Default Where to Buy

Hey guys,

I'm in Australia and I was wondering where I can pick these batteries up? I'm assuming that I'll have to buy from overseas but have no idea where from and where to get the best prices? Any suggestions??

Thanks

Is there a noticable difference between:

SMC C-Max 4700mAh EFRA LiPo 40+C
SMC SportMax 5000mAh EFRA LiPo 28C
