A Main sticks by their products and refunded me my money on these batteries. Buy with confidence here on A Main, they've got your back!)
superb battery especially for the price. Going to order more at a later date!)
Had less than 10 charges with lipo balancing
And lost a cell in the battery didnt have it for a month)
I only got about a month out of one battery before the balance leads pulled off the tabs and I had to carefully open the case to re solder them.)
Great punch (seems higher than 35c)
Need more $40 sales for these!)
Update Aug 2015.....
These batteries have proven themselves I have run them now for months and they have had countless charging cycles through them (sometimes at much higher charge rates than is recommended. ....well most of the them..lol)
I have ZERO problems with these batteries except they have not gone on sale again at the price I paid for them, but when they do I will definitely more...Great Batteries enough power to have tons of fun bashing but not so much power to break things and ruin your day...love these bats!)
