Certainly disguises the original manufacturer. Remember there is no official C rating system so anything can be put on them

Speedpower 5800mAh 55C 7.4V LiPo battery = Intellec IP 50C 5600 mAH
Speedpower 5000mAh 55C 7.4V LiPo battery = Intellect IP 50C 5000mAH

Is that what you are trying to say? What about 3Racing 5000mAH 50C, also OEM?

About whos OEM what, this and that...is absolutely un-necessary. You buy what you like, where you like, and how much you like....but if IP don't even have the 5000mah 55C lipo, in what way they can OEM that to Speed Power and ppl will know that it is an IP pack...? Beside....who would really want to open up a BRAND NEW in PERFECT CONDITION lipo, and find out it is OEM by someone else, and will get upset about it..? Totally not necessary..............

Not to mention...the price on these pack at Speed Power website, is amazing. (please look at the below link).

I have been running the Speed Power 5000mah 55C 7.4V Racing Lipo battery, the 5300mah 45C 7.4V Racing Lipo battery adn the 5800mAh 55C 7.4V LiPo battery for more then 2 months on my TC (all with SC, 17.5 and 13.5 and mod 4.0)...I don't "baby" my lipo at all...I raced them, then charge them without waiting and cooling (that is what I have always do to ABUSE the batteries to see any problem will happen)...so far, all 3 lipo has no puff and always @ 8.44V and above (alot of time while I was doing tech, I have to drain the lipo a little to pass the tech). So far, within these 2 months...I have not even balance these 3 packs yet. And I am sure it will take no more then a minute to balance them if I am going to balance them in purpose.

You can buy direct here....or contact your local Speed Passion, Speed Power, East Coast Bodies Tunned dealer...aka, your hobby shop.

Speed Passion USA will provide support for all Speed Power items.

Team Turtle has been running the 4500 40c and says it has a lot more punch than his IP5000 pack. I'm going to be getting myself one in a week or two when I can afford it.
