ProTek RC 1S "High Power" Li-Poly Micro Heli/Airplane 25C Battery Pack (3.7V/160mAh)
Good battery. I use these in my nano cp x and fly mostly hard 3D. I get about 6 1/2 to 7 minute flights charging at .3amps.

ProTek RC 1S "High Power" Li-Poly Micro Heli/Airplane 25C Battery Pack (3.7V/160mAh)
These batteries seem to work great! Nice long flight times, great power. I use them in my mcx and mcx2. They are longer than stock and to keep the CG right you have to push them all the way towards the front and they may interfere with the servos. I stuck a sliver of fuel tubing between the landing skids and the frame to give it more room.

ProTek RC 1S "High Power" Li-Poly Micro Heli/Airplane 25C Battery Pack (3.7V/160mAh)
I bought 5 of these batteries for use with a BNF Basic mSRX kit. I don't have experience with the stock 150mAh batteries nor any others so I dont have good comparison other than avg flight times people have posted on forums. I get about 5-7 minutes of air time which consists of lots of hovering and scooting around the hangar bay of the boat I'm on when the real helos are off flying. They have an interesting "power curve" where they fly for about 3 minutes with no noticeable loss of power then there is a sudden drop where I have to add just a little more juice for the second half of the flight until right before the LVC kicks in it starts to feel flat. I charge these lower than 1C because my charger only adjusts in .1 amp increments and I always round down when charging (it ranges from charging 1 to 5 batteries at once in parallel depending on how much flying I do). Would I buy them again? Yes. Would I buy them over Turnigy batteries? Yes mainly because A Main has great CS so if I get a dud (which I feel is less likely than a HK batt) I can ship it back without paying out the nose for a $5 battery.
