    Ah...nevermind....it's an overseas supplier. Shipping is likely rediculous.

    Seriously? I should have read more carefully. If thats the case, even if its a crappy battery, it might still be worth $35!


    They also have a full brushless system for $78! I'm almost afraid of the prices.

    I'm looking there, too. They have a balancing charger for $85.

    No. I was hoping someone else here might have had some experience with these folks.

    I'm thinking more about the quality of the product, rather than the seller. I looked at the feedback rating, which looks good to me, the price just seems extremely cheap. That's usually a bad thing, but not always. For example, I found a place to buy 50-foot HDMI cables for my home theater for like $70, when they were $450 everywhere else, and the $70 cables are awesome quality. Thats the type of deal i am looking for with RC parts.

    Well, one thing I do see is that the $78 esc/brushless combo uses the eZrun branded ESC. I dont know if this is good or bad.

    Just remember that you get what you pay for. A freind of mine bough cheap lipo batteries and it almost cost him his house when 1 of the puffed and almost exploded. Luckily he saw it before it popped and got it out of the house in time.

    Guys you’re lucky being in the states , at least for most of you.. everything is available
    at your country, so don’t bother yourself looking after overseas
    distributors.

    Ha ha! Just don't put it in a truck with a plastic chassis or you may be picking up pieces afterwards.

    I hear you.
    The pack would be cycled several times then bench tested at continuous loads (up to 80-Amps), looking for the highest load the pack could sustain without a voltage crash or thermal run-away condition.

    i do not know about the battery but the E-Z run brushless esc's are made in the same factory as speed passion esc's are.
    i know this because my friend bought a speed passion for his touring car and the handheld programing box had a E Z run sticker on the back of it.

    Looks like they removed the 11.1V 5000mah, but there is a 11.1V 4000mah for 25.00.

    Thats just what everyone used to say about MA.They have to be the best,they cost the most.SPC lipos compare to many lipos that cost much more.BTW I have a ebay lipo that has been doing good for 10 mos now.I think I paid 35 bucks for it.Thing about a good deal is,you don't know it till you got it.
