Alright everyone here is some info about the pack.

It just fit into a BK2 buggy with a little bit of dremel work on the servo plate. Ill post some pics when I get a chance. Case is rigid plastic.

I also read on Trinity's site that this battery has built-in discharge protection. If that's true then that means you wouldn't have to worry about low voltage cutoff on your ESC. All this for under $80? Very interesting!
:

I am seriously thinking of getting one. I just shorted out one of my Orion 4800 and don't want to fork out $140 for another!

As people in the know keep posting and its yet to be answered. What is its continuous and burst C rating? If its low, then that price and mah are worthless. Also make sure the C they give is not the burst versus the continuous (like LRP tries to get away with).

I agree...I can't find the specs anywhere.

I have one coming and I intend to disassemble it if possible to check out the cells. Might be some form of labeling on them to identify them. I'll post what I find if anything.

Doh! Battery arrived today with no shipping damage on the package. Also no damage I could see to the pack's box. Inside however......

The battery's side had an impact hard enough to crack the case, separate the halves slightly and knock a decent size chunk out. I don't think I'll run this one. Just a hunch.

Stormer had me return it and they'll reship. They just got on Friday (can't ship air with these) so now I need to wait for the new pack to return from Montana.

At least they took it back instead of leaving me to deal with Trinity...

I did not see any ratings on the pack though and separating the case halves felt like it would be difficult. I think it's going to be an unknown for a bit. Reedy's now, Rick just dropped the hint that the cell maker would be disclosed...

These packs are 20C rated. I'll give dimensions, weight, etc later but at least I know the discharge rating now. I asked my sales rep at Trinity and he checked into it for me.

For the money, these seem like a very good deal but we'll run them and see how they perform.
