Default Suggestions for the best 2s lipos money can buy!!!!!!

Hey guys just wanting some input on what would be the best 2s packs money can buy. I'm sick of replacing cheap (hobbyking etc) lipos for my DEX408 and am now ready to buy at least 4 2s stick packs for racing and practice (min 5000mah) that can withstand high discharge over and over. Let me know what you use. Pls dont suggest cheap packs im over them, i'm only talking about high end packs like Orion Carbon Pros or Fantom Killer Volts etc. Cheers

I felt the same way, but I've had more Roar Approved batteries swell and crack than I have non approved.

I've just stepped up and went for better batteries. I bought myself some Thunder Power
Time will tell, but so far they're working good and guys at my track said welcome to the big leagues when I showed up with them.....

Watch this thread and see what others say.

Im running some Thunder Power 6000 65c and they are awesome. I heard that the Orions blow up really easy in high draw applications and if the Fantoms are revtech packs, the swell really easy. The Reedy 6500 65c packs are really nice as well.

You heard wrong... I have run Orion 5500 saddles all year in a SC10 4x4 with Tenshock 4600 and Tekin Rx8 wide open... Flawless..

I have not tried the Thunder Power so I won't pass on second hand knowledge.. Only talk about what I have personally experienced in my racing.

Hands down, the revtech/fantoms are the best. they have very low IR and degrade very slowly from my experience.

I'm surprised that noone suggested the most expensive MaxAmps.

Personally I have had excellent results with ProTec packs and Turnigy Nanos.

I've learned the hard way that any pack could puff if you store them fully charged for a few months. I've been using Lipo for seven years and now always put them away with a storage chage of about 3.8V per cell.

Also using too low of a C rating will stress a pack in high load situations.

Hey guys, I'm new to this forum. I personally prefer the turnigy nano-tech batteries. What do you guys think of those?
