Default Which 2400 are the best

Hello--

I'm in the market for getting some new 2400 packs and I'm not sure which company puts out the best pack for a good price. I heard the Pro Match Batteries has a good reputation, but from looking at their website, they don't sell 2400 anymore. For the most part, I will only be using the packs in stock class. My budget is in the $50 / $60 dollar range

Thanks for the input

Pro Match has SMH's on special for $50.99 a pack. You might want to check out some lower end 3000's rather then hunting down 2400's.

i have the integy 2400's and they have been going real good with out a drop in performance. if you have the charger for it you may aswell get the 3000's though as they are not much more or the same in price.

Right now I have Trinity 2400. But, for the budget range you listed, I would say check out speedtechrc for some sweet deals on Integy packs.

I am with ottoman, see if ya can get the 3k's, if your charger can handle it. Promatch also has a temp alarm, that will allow you to charge your 3k's with a regular charger.

I recommend that you try B&T Batteries http://www.rc-aero.com/biz/bandt/. I just received my order of 2400 yesterday, placed the order on Monday. I have been ordering my batteries from B&T for the past 2 years and their batteries are as advertised.

I race strictly stock so 2400's more than meet my need. In the past, I bought several sets of the older generation (Panasonic) 3000 batteries, and was very dissapointed with their life span. Even using the approved/suggested charging methods the 3000 lasted about 1 season. The 2000's that I bought years ago lasted 2 -3 racing seasons. Granted the 2000's were only good as practice packs after the 2nd season, but the 3000's were completely gone after a single season!

I understand that the new generation of 3000's are better, but I'm not ready to jump on to that bandwagon yet. The care and feeding of NiCd's is easier, and I have better results with them. Besides, I don't really need 3000's for racing stock. Give B&T a try, they are a well kept secret!!!

I must agree with Geppetto. I only have 2 2400 B&T packs, but they are probably my best packs. They have great numbers, and I got mine for only $55. They're equal to, if not better than the best Trinity or Reedy packs.
