    Sorry mate, not sure if it was a typo on your behalf, but just to clarify something:

    3.7 volt battery = 1 cell x 3.7 volts (1S)
    7.4 volt battery = 2 cells x 3.7 volts (2S)
    11.1 volt battery = 3 cells x 3.7 volts (3S)
    14.8 volt battery = 4 cells x 3.7 volts (4S)
    18.5 volt battery = 5 cells x 3.7 volts (5S)
    22.2 volt battery = 6 cells x 3.7 volts (6S)

    These are the 'average' volt/cell count numbers. You stated you wished for a '7.4v 3 cell', while I cannot say that this does NOT exist, it most likely does not.

    Voltages per cell can vary, but on average, this is the info you will need.

    Hope it helps man, good luck in the hunt.

    I swear by Venom lipos! You have to change that multi connector if it has one. Great power, long lasting and great warranty

    Not yet. I currently have six pairs of SPC batteries. The 40C/5200mAH ones that the referenced battery replaced are the closest.
    The 30C/6000mAH pack is also amazing, well, all their packs are. Point is that SPC packs are hard to compare to other packs that are similarly rated. They are typically much better.

    agreed

    AWEOSOME batteries and you can't beat the price! soldering is easy, so these were a no brainer for me

    I'm HARD on the throttle and I get probably 20-25 minutes out of each battery with stock gearing







    40c is more than enough with a 5000mah pack; the Velineon will never pull enough amps to stress the packs. mine don't even get warm to the touch after hard running

    190$ clams is a lotta lettuce for a lipo. I like the SPC recommendation. If I was feeling rockafeller I might try the Venom brand. You could get a Venom 3S 50C for about $95.
