Have been using IP Lipos for a couple of years now, in 50c and 60c. Superb, can't fault them. Good performance, great price, and no reliability issues.

As with any Lipo, always store half charged, balance charge regularly (every run if possible), and let them cool before recharging. If you do this they'll last for years.

I use lrp 5600 since 1,5 years now.

They still good and always balanced with my hyperion charger ( maximum gap between cell 0.003 V )

I hope these IP will have the same durability

If its hot where you race do not use IP. Thunderpower are the only batteries that can stand the heat IMO.
