I started using these batteries, the first series from a previous manufacturer, then this manufacturer. In the five months I have had every one of the three I had originally purchased replaced for swelling, and starting to look dangerous to me. Now the replacements, a month old are starting to exhibit the same tendencies, plus two of the three will not balance. I could think it's me and my charger (ECO 65) but I have 2 year old Venom batteries in the hard red plastic case which continue to take [More…]

Bought two of these and they both puffed by the second race day. Broke them in properly and never used for more than 10 minutes between charges after broke in. I had two of the previous 4300 mAh versions and they had puffed as well, one so bad I didn't feel comfortable using it. I had to buy two of these instead of just one for replacement because of the 5mm terminals. I had much better luck with Reedy batteries and will be using them exclusively from now on.

This new shorty pack is awesome! Tons of power and is good for over ten minutes in a mod 2 wheel buggy. It's also very consistent throughout the run. I've been running mine for over six months and it hasn't even come close to swelling. Just make sure you don't over discharge the battery by running it for too long. If you do that very often, any battery will swell no matter what brand.

Excellent update from the previous versions which were already good as well. I prefer the 5mm connectors as they don't get warm which is nice considering how much power we're asking of these little packs. Easily fits into cars and balances well each and every time. I've got well over 100 cycles on my first pack and it's running as strong as it was new. Also note, the internal resistance is nice and low, good for those of you who race stock.

Picked up three of these when they first came out and were on sale. So far have not had an issue with them (except the one that I left in the buggy for a month,..plugged in,..and it swelled *dooh*). Great punch, and consistency through a 6 minute race. No problems with swelling (not user inflicted :P ) or balancing. I had a buddy charge it at 30A and it warmed up as normal, and wasn't hot enough to cause concern (do this at your own risk!!!). As long as you care for them properly they should la[More…]
