Default Any noticable difference between the Ofna 1700 receiver pack & a 1600?

Hey guys, looking to get a new receiver pack. I noticed most are 1600 mah such as my reedy pack. But I saw the Ofna 1700 mah receiver pack. Would there be any noticable difference in runtime or anything of that nature with this pack? I can buy another 1600 mah stickman pack for almost 10 bucks cheaper. Thanks.

Ofna packs should only be $25. Stickmans are only $15?

So far I have had best luck with a off brand/house brand from hobby town. The 2 packs I have had from them lasted longest cycle wise & both took more than cell rating. I have one ofna pack that only takes 1400 mah & 1 that takes 1700 from dead when cycled & a buddy has 2 packs that take 1700 each when cycled to same cut voltage,I say thets normal, its luck of the draw whith reciever cells.I will say I have had nothing but bad luck cycle wise with the orion packs but their only $19 each. All I can say is I have not felt cheated with the ofna packs & know people that have had good luck with stickman also,flip a coin.

whatever you do. never buy an orion pack. i have tried alot of packs and i think that the reedy lasts the longest and is most consistant. i ran a 30 minute main. went to go charge it up. and the pack still had 1000 mah left in it. reedy all the way
