Team Orion makes well Li-Po batteries.

Team Orions are among the worst, overpriced lipos I've owned.

Running Fantom now, relatively good IR. Have had good luck with the OEM manufacturer that provides batteries for the higher end Reedy, Orca, R1 batteries too.

SMC is good IR initially but they all puffed on me and IR got worse much faster than the other packs.

I like GensAce batteries. I have used one for 3 years and it's still one of my stronger packs.

Just checkout the 'Nick Adams' channel on youtube and you will be able to draw your own conclusions....

I run the Team Orion Carbon Pro Ultra Lightweight 5800mah - 110c Li-Po batteries. They seem to run well for me (so far).

Nick Adams haven't tested any Team Orion Li-Po batteries. . . . . . .(?) Why not?
Can't find any test(s).

Just use any decent battery you can get en focus more on the car, no way you will have any profit of "the best" battery. And as you can see, with all different answers there is no "best battery"

Totally agree!!

However I am running Dynamite 🧨

Low CG and lightweight batteries (e.g. LRP) to help with handling, not just power.

Maclan and R1 are expensive but very very good lipos.

GuyIsDamGood 07-09-2019 03:24 AM

Does anyone know Why Nick Adams didn't test the Team Orion Li-Po batteries?

Thank you

Hello, can you tell what's the name of the OEM, i'm interested. Thank you



For me, LRP packs have been excellent. Look at what the A-main in the ETS uses, it can give you a direction on what to choose.
