Was going to get these batteries and was wondering if they are any good.
Seen 1 or 2 people on here running them but i have no experience.
IMHO, you can find a quality pack for $40 - $60 and its well worth the extra $15 per pack. Sure that will set me back some but its not going to put me into bankruptcy. I would gladly spend that money on a quality pack as all my cheap packs have not lasted more than a year so i wont be buying anymore cheap china packs.
Here's my experience. I bought them off ebay because they had a "Offer" section. I got the 3s 5000 with traxxas plugs. They wanted $65, I offered $50 and they took it. Very fast shipping. when I got the packs, one had a dead cell. I emailed and they sent me a new pack he next day. so the customer service has been awesome. I ran the packs through my Xmaxx a few times and haven't had any issues with them as of yet. They are roughly 3 months old now.

OP your not wanted here. Your a Slash convert!!!
I don't think this is the right place to discuss this battery...
Anyways, over at another forum, some users are running their small 1200mah or so and have reported they balloon easily.
For some reason it seems like smaller packs are more susceptible to puffing. Anybody else notice that? The vast majority of my puffed packs are either shorty packs for my TLR or small packs for my merv
I haven't used my batteries to tell, but if you are within spec, they shouldn't as long as they are quality packs.
Over in the uk we use these a lot cos their cheap and l have a 2s 5000 and can't fault it to date,very happy.

Does anyone know how long Traxxas warranty their battery packs?
