I have the Gens Ace 25c (2 packs) and Sky Lipo 40c (1 pack) - 4s / 2200mah packs. The battery packs are identical physical size and weight. Sky lipo has 8 cycles and the Gen Aces only 3-4 cycles. Not much of a cycle sampling but both brands are performing the same so far. Based on my calculation I'm pulling only 6-7c from the batteries.

I agree with you on this. I prefer the SkyLipo arrangement better. The SkyLipo wiring configuration just fits better in my plane. I had to cut the packaging on the Gens Ace to bend the wire leads to make them fit.

As you you said, assuming similar longevity, I would take the SkyLipo, few bucks cheaper and no weight / size advantage with the 25c pack.
