No problem, if you have any more question just head on over to the SpeedZone team thread, i think the weight has alot to do with the electronics i run, they are fairly heavy

Old news. The latest SMC packs are excellent. The puffing problem may have been packs bought from China/Hong Kong that were cheap copies using the SMC label.

On second thoughts, please go ahead and believe this wrong statement, go and buy someone else's pack, and then I will be able to beat you with my SMC pack!!

Seriously, SMC is a very good cell, good price, no puffing problems and excellent performance. HTH

why do you think smc disappeared in this forum?

btw i bought my smc (my first new pack) cost me $130 from nexus. and it puffed in 2 months with good care.
maybe nexus is selling "cheap copies using the SMC label"

For the history:

Will never buy smc again. Expensive. Heavy. Poor customer service.
not reliable. I learn the lesson by using their crappy pricy products

SMC 60C 6000mah has been great for me! I have one that is close to two years old and still running strong. Reliable performance with top notch service. SMC is hard to beat.

If you think you have had top notch service from them, you have obviously had problems with your SMC batteries...
