ProTek RC 2S "Supreme Power" Li-Poly 100C Hard Case Shorty Battery Pack w/5mm (7.4V/4700mAh)
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 a licking and keep on ticking. I purchased 4 Venom shorties to use in my competition cars, plus the two full size Venoms, and the Pro_Tek will be relegated to practice till they die. In thier defense A Main Hobbies has stood behind thier product, as they do all my purchases, but I'm getting tired of the hassle of getting RMA, paying to ship them back, etc. I could not in good faith recommend these batteries to anyone.

ProTek RC 2S "Supreme Power" Li-Poly 100C Hard Case Shorty Battery Pack w/5mm (7.4V/4700mAh)
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.

ProTek RC 2S "Supreme Power" Li-Poly 100C Hard Case Shorty Battery Pack w/5mm (7.4V/4700mAh)
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.

ProTek RC 2S "Supreme Power" Li-Poly 100C Hard Case Shorty Battery Pack w/5mm (7.4V/4700mAh)
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.

ProTek RC 2S "Supreme Power" Li-Poly 100C Hard Case Shorty Battery Pack w/5mm (7.4V/4700mAh)
Pack with plenty of power to run. Isn't to heavy, nor is it to lite, it's just right! Use this in my stock buggy, and and competitive with it week in and week out!

ProTek RC 2S "Supreme Power" Li-Poly 100C Hard Case Shorty Battery Pack w/5mm (7.4V/4700mAh)
I have had nothing but great experiences with Protek batteries. I have three of these shorties and two of their big brothers, the 7k mah 100c full size sticks. I just put the full size sticks up for sale in the consignment booth at my local track, but only because I am standardizing on these shorties for both short course truck and buggy. I am strictly a racer, so the weight savings of going to the shorty pack are very attractive, however I still want enough run time to put in decent practice runs. These batteries fill both requirements perfectly. I don't charge at crazy amperage, I am a 6 amp balance charge every time type of guy and I always store my batteries in a proper state of charge. I have never had so much as a hiccup with these packs, no puffing, no false peaks, no early sign off, nothing. The only thing that should be noted is that these are 5mm bullets, not the more industry standard 4mm. So you will want to make sure to purchase or build the appropriate harnesses with the correct sized hardware. I use a deans connector mid harness between my ESC and battery rather than terminating straight to the battery bullet, so that in a pinch I can use or borrow a battery with 4mm bullet connectors with little fuss. These batteries look great, and perform even better.

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 last a while.
