NOTE: When using high energy Li-Polymer Batteries, please do not
over-discharge or over-charge batteries as this will result in over
heated batteries. Discharging capacity can't exceed 80% of the max
capacity of the pack after full charging to ensure a good cycle
performance. It is recommended to fully charge a brand new battery
before using and only discharge the battery 50% for first 5 cycles.
Always set a low voltage warning on ESC (End voltage cannot be lower
than 3.2v per cell). Do not use a battery that has too low a voltage.
Do not expose batteries to sunshine or store/charge batteries at the temperature above 35°C or in a closed car. The high temperature environment could cause damage to the pack or make it burst. If the battery becomes hot while fast charging, high current discharging or driving, do not charge the battery until it has cooled completely. Wait about 20 mins, then inspect prior to recharging.

The nice touch is the battery leads and the balance tap come out of the upper corner. For the majority of flat chassis cars like slashes, sc10's, b4's, etc, this is awesome as the leads don't interfere with the sides of the battery area.
Price wise..well...TP is a bit overpriced but along with Hyperion, they are the only ones I see who really put out a GOOD warranty and I recently had two Hyperion 3300 6s heli packs go up and they replaced them pro bono. That speaks volumes when companies have that kind of service.
The TL:DR on this battery.
Good power, Good case (if not ejected across the track.). Good lead placement.
Bleh pricing and darn it, TP why do you keep using non standard balance taps???
I wish they just used the JST XH connectors like everyone else -_-)
