    If your gonna get lipos for your mini... i strongly suggest the SPC batteries and I strongly suggest going with the Big Wire Upgrade option they have. I have 2 3S pack and 2 2S packs and they are just excellent batteries. Honestly, for the price, they are very competitive against ANY other mini pack including the HK versions. Much better deal than the Duratrax, better capacity than the venoms and way higher quality than anything over seas. Just my opinion, but seriously, if your not willing to spend a few extra bucks (litearlly, maybe $5 or so) to get a quality SPC pack VS something with no customer service... thats just sad.

    Just curious, why do you need customer service on a batt pack? I have lipo packs never had to call customer service. Everyone has his own preferences on brands it does not mean others are bad just because they come from HK or are cheaper.

    Lipo batteries can and do fail... as do all batteries. If one cell goes bad (which does happen) if a connector comes loose or a solder joint comes apart... any of these things could require customer service. Im not saying the cheaper packs are bad, im just saying for the few dollars more you would need to spend to get a pack that DOES have high end customer service and an excellent warranty, it would only take one time to have that extra cost pay for itself.
    Also, since we cant discuss HOW to use our lipos here on the forums, someone just getting into lipos could benefit greatly from being able to call up a company like SPC or Venom and ask questions about to to use and care for their packs. Something you wont get from a lipo bought overseas.
