Default Intellect Lipos?

Hey,

There are a few of these packs on eBay that are prices very nicely. So has anyone used them that can say how quality they are? Thanks.

Tom

I have a buddy who swears by them, he mostly uses the 5000mah 25C
IP5000 lipo packs.

Myself I have a Racers Edge 5000mah 25C that I am very happy with.

I run the 4200 saddles in my TC and they are AWESOME...especially at the price. My local track owner runs the 4200 stick and it is wicked fast as well. These are the same packs being sold by a major RC manufacturer at nearly twice the price you can get them for on the 'bay.

I'll second, third, or fourth the notion of using them. Bought the Intellect 30C 4200 saddle pack off of eBay for ~$70, and it has been a rockstar in my car.

I've been running a pair of the 2S 30C 5000mah IB hard cased lipos offroad in a Slash and my Emaxx. Have a few dozen runs on them and they've been great so far. I made a few runs with a data recorder and the lipos have had no probs handling the 100+amp spikes the recorder has noted.

I've been happy with them.

i have 2 2s, 5000mah 30C(hardcase), and they seem pretty damn good.
i bought both brand new, and the seller gave them both to me for 3/4 the price of a single battery

i have only run one of the batteries, but they seem to have no probs with my castle creations brushless system, with stupidly high gearing.

I just bought a 5400mah Saddle pack 60C and its plain awesome! of course it was the packs first charge, but compared to my 5200mah 45C, the 5400mah 60C gave me much longer run times, i dont know why, and the dimensions and the weight is almost the same as the 5200mah. will buy some more IPs when i need more packs. worth the money.

I run the 50C 4200mah packs as these are about the lightest 50C packs available and help with car balance. Have been running them about 6 months now and still going strong. No signs of any swelling.

Best value Lipos available I would think.
